In many instances, you will be able to recover workers’ compensation benefits and bring a lawsuit against liable parties after a construction accident. In addition to a workers’ compensation claim, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit in order to receive substantial compensation for all of your physical, emotional, and economic damages.
You may file a workers’ compensation claim if your employer carries such insurance. If a third party, such as an owner, general contractor, or subcontractor caused or contributed to your accident, a personal injury lawsuit may allow you to seek additional compensation.
Filing a Third-Party Lawsuit
Sometimes, a construction accident results from a third party’s negligence. For example, if you suffered injuries due to an unsafe work site or failure to provide adequate safety devices the building owner or contractors may be liable for your injuries and resulting damages.
A lawsuit allows you to seek additional compensation for non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering or loss of quality of life. If your injuries caused physical pain or emotional turmoil, you could seek damages for these losses. If an injury altered your daily functioning or led to a disability, you could seek an award to compensate you for these losses, as well.
