How to Protect Your Rights After a Workplace Accident
Construction accident cases involve navigating a complicated web of relationships
between property owners, contractors, subcontractors, and various insurance
carriers, all of whom are looking to avoid liability for an employee death
or injury. Victims and families can be tricked into believing that sympathetic
companies will "take good care of them."
However, once the applicable statute of limitations expires, the company
will most likely withdraw financial support and the victims will be left
with far less than they would have received had they chosen to pursue
legal action. The lawyers at Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs have
been working tirelessly on behalf of clients since 1992.
Seek Additional Damages Through a Third Party Claim
Please note that, while you do have the option to seek workers' compensation
from your employer for serious
workplace injuries, you may also be entitled to further damages through a third party claim
against another company whose negligence or defective products contributed
to your injury or loss.
You would just need to prove that:
- The third party owed you a duty of care
- The third party failed to uphold this duty
- You were injured as a result of this failure
For example, you might be able to file a
personal injury claim if you were involved in a construction accident caused by defective
equipment. As long as you can prove that a) the equipment was faulty and
b) the faulty equipment caused your injuries, you would be able to seek
damages from the company that designed and/or manufactured the equipment.
