Our team of experienced trial attorneys are committed to pursuing third party claims for people injured in construction site accidents. At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we make sure the right party is held accountable for the construction site accident. Our main objective is to help you obtain full compensation for all of your current and future medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other losses you suffered as a result of the accident.
If you are a construction worker and suffered an injury on the job site, you qualify to receive worker’s compensation benefits. In addition, you may be able to file a third-party bodily injury claim to cover losses due to the accident.
Construction workers that are injured on the site qualify for worker’s compensation, but they can’t sue their employer if they get hurt at work. However, accidents at construction sites are usually caused by third parties. This includes negligence on behalf of the property owners, general contractors, or subcontractors, as well as accidents caused by defective machinery and other tools.
If a third party is partially or fully responsible for your construction site accident, you have the right to file a personal injury claim against them, in addition to receiving your worker’s compensation.
At Russell & Hill, PLLC, our attorneys have handled countless construction site accident personal injury claims involving third parties.
In one of our most recent cases, our client was a plumber working at a construction site. He suffered an injury after slipping on leftover drywall material on the floor. Initially, our client thought he couldn’t file a claim due to worker’s compensation laws. Nevertheless, at Russell & Hill PLLC, we were able to seek and win compensation by proving that the accident was caused by negligence on behalf of the third-party drywall contractor – not our client’s direct employer.
In another recent case we handled, one of our clients stepped backward into a stairwell at a construction site and suffered a severe injury when he landed on his back one floor below. Because he collected worker’s compensation benefits from his employer, our client thought he couldn’t file a claim. However, a third-party contractor was responsible for the missing railing around the stairwell. We were able to file a claim and get compensation for the injuries and losses suffered.
