How a Construction Accident Lawyer at Munley Law Can Help
Construction workers have one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. An accident at a construction site can have lifelong consequences, and can put you out of work for months or even years. If you’ve been hurt on the job, you may have questions about who is responsible for your medical bills, how you will be compensated for the time you miss from work, and how to navigate the workers’ compensation claims process. We are here to help.
Some common types of construction accidents include:
- Falling objects
- Hazardous chemical exposure
- Motor vehicle collision
- Malfunctioning equipment
- Workers Caught-in/between or compressed by equipment or objects, and struck, caught, or crushed in collapsing structure, equipment, or material
Construction accident injuries can result from inadequate training, poor maintenance, negligent operation, or another OSHA violation. After an injury, workers’ compensation may deny your claim. They may attempt to argue that your injury was not work-related or was pre-existing. If workers’ compensation denies your claim, don’t feel discouraged. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side can make all the difference.
Third Party Claims Regarding Construction Accidents
Construction site accidents can be more complicated than typical workplace accidents because they often involve outside contractors and third parties. Workers’ compensation exists to cover medical costs and lost wages for an employee hurt on the job. However, if the workplace accident was caused by an outside factor, you may be eligible to bring a third party claim. For instance, if a malfunctioning or defective piece of equipment causes serious harm, a construction accident lawyer at our firm may hold the manufacturer accountable.
