What Are My Legal Options?

Just like with car accidents and other injury accidents, a personal injury lawsuit is one possible option after you've been injured in a construction accident. However, unlike car accident legal options, workers' compensation offers another avenue to securing fair compensation after your accident on a construction site. 

Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation is a mandatory, employer-funded system to compensate employees for work-related injuries. In the event of an injury on the job, most construction workers are eligible for workers' compensation benefits to cover medical expenses and lost wages due to disability. However, workers' compensation benefits can fall short if the employer is not adequately insured or if the insurance company denies your claim.

Personal Injury Lawsuit

A construction accident that's caused by employer safety violations can lead to serious injuries or even fatalities that may have been avoided. In these cases, a personal injury lawsuit can provide additional compensation that a workers' compensation claim cannot, including punitive damages for pain and suffering, wrongful death, and long-term losses. A personal injury lawsuit can be crucial for injured workers to receive full, fair compensation to account for their medical bills, lost wages, and other loss of stability due to an employer's negligence.
