Construction worker accidents and third-party claims
Although injured workers are prohibited from suing their employers for workplace injuries because of workers’ compensation benefits laws, they still may file for a personal injury lawsuit against third parties - such as property owners, subcontractors and their insurance companies - who were responsible for their injury. This is called a “third-party cause of action.” If someone other than the employer was fully or partially responsible for the cause of your personal injury or that of your family member or loved one, you or they may be able to sue that third party with one of our construction accident attorneys and still file your workers’ compensation benefits claim.
By contacting a skilled construction worker injury and workers’ compensation attorney at Romanucci & Blandin early on, we can obtain the necessary information, relevant medical bills and expenses and records, and work through free consultation to evaluate your potential claims. Construction companies and the other negligent parties involved in these personal injury cases are liable to help accident victims and their families recover from the aftereffects, including medical expenses, of a construction site injury or fatality.
