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. That is why it is so important to have a strong legal advocate on your side to increase your chances of getting the compensation you are rightfully owed.

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.
