Construction And Workplace Injuries
Workplace accidents can cause serious injuries, often leaving an individual unable to return to work for an extended period of time. Whether you were injured because of your employer’s actions or a third party, Steve Foley Esq. can review your claim and your options for recovery.
Who Is Responsible For Workplace Injuries?
In many cases, workers’ compensation benefits are available to help injured workers meet the costs and challenges of an on-the-job injury. However, there may be additional sources of financial recovery. If a third party (not your employer) contributed to your injury, it may be possible to bring a claim for personal injury damages including medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and other expenses.
Common examples of third parties in work injury cases include:
- Another motorist involved in a work-related car accident
- The manufacturer or distributor of dangerous equipment
- The owner of dangerous property that caused the injury
- A security company that failed to adequately supervise a work-related event
- A contractor or other entity involved in your work
Whoever caused your injury, you have a right to pursue financial compensation for your losses. This can help you focus on healing without the additional stress of financial uncertainty.
