Protecting Your Right to Recover After a Construction Accident
Construction sites by nature present some of the most hazardous of working conditions. Construction workers and other people in a construction zone, such as passersby, delivery personnel and inspectors, often face dangers and sometimes suffer from injuries. Construction accidents often involve one or more of the following:
- Roof falls
- Falling objects
- Debris on walkways or other hazardous conditions left behind by other subcontractors
An injured construction accident victim most likely has a worker’s compensation claim. The Adler Firm, PLLC, has a full-fledged workers’ compensation law practice along with our personal injury practice. Unlike many personal injury law firms, we will not refer out your workers’ compensation claim to another law firm. We are equipped to handle all aspects of your injury case after a construction accident.
Who Is Responsible for the Accident? Your Employer or a Third Party?
We can help injured workers maximize workers’ compensation claims. In addition, we will evaluate a construction accident to determine whether there is a third-party liability claim over and above workers’ compensation. A third-party liability claim often involves defective product claims or claims against subcontractors who are not part of the employing company.
In any work-related injury, we watch out for our clients’ employment rights as well as compensation for injuries. If your employer wrongfully terminates you after an injury occurring on the job at a construction site, our law firm is prepared to bring legal action against that employer.
