If you are injured at work on a construction site, you are entitled to workers compensation benefits. However, workers compensation benefits may not be your only remedy. You may also be entitled to third-party benefits (personal injury claim) if your accident was caused by subcontractors or other entities on the construction site; these companies may also be liable for your injuries. Even the architects and/or engineers may be liable for your injuries due to improper planning or due to engineering defects.
If you are receiving workers compensation benefits, our attorneys can determine whether you have a third-party (personal injury) liability claim. We have handled many referrals which enable the injured worker to be compensated fully for their injuries in addition to wage loss and medical benefits afforded by workers compensation, since you can not receive pain and suffering or punitive damages in your workers compensation claim.You may have a third party (personal injury) claim in order to recover for pain and suffering due to your injuries.
If you think you have a potential third-party (personal injury) lawsuit, even if you are already represented by a workers compensation attorney, please contact us for a free-no obligation consultation. We will then schedule a meeting at your location.
There is no attorney fee recovery in a third party (personal injury) lawsuit, unless you recover money from the liable party; this is called a contingent fee agreement. Also, all costs of the claim are advanced and paid by the law firm in all third party (personal injury) lawsuits.
This is one call that could potentially change your life for the better and help you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries!
