When Can I File a Personal Injury Claim For a Construction Accident?

Many people believe that a person who has been injured on the job can only file a workers compensation claim. That is far from the truth. If you have been injured while working on a construction site, you also may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit for the following:

  • Third-party involvement: These types of suits are filed when a person or entity that is not a construction company employer caused your injury. Example: You were injured on the construction site by a driver of a third-party company.
  • Gross employer: These types of suits are filed when an employer acted in a way that put an employee’s safety at risk. For example: Your employer failed to provide you with adequate safety equipment and you were injured as a result.
  • Toxic substances: These types of suits are filed when an employer is injured as a result of working with toxic, harmful substances.

How Much Compensation Can I Receive for a Construction Accident Lawsuit?

The amount of compensation you may be eligible to receive is directly related to the types of injuries you suffer, the type of pain and suffering you endure and will endure, potential lost wages, and more. For this reason, your medical evaluation and diagnosis will serve as proof that the accident greatly affected your quality of life.

When you work with a member of our team, a Campbell construction accident attorney from our team can pursue compensation for the following:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Medical expenses
  • Cost of medications
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost wages

What is the Difference Between a Workers Compensation Claim and a Personal Injury Claim?

Workers compensation covers necessary medical expenses and a fraction of lost wages. On the other hand, if your personal injury lawsuit is successful, you may be compensated for monetary expenses as well as non-economic damages you suffered as a result of your injury.

Who is Responsible if I Was Injured Because My Safety Gear Was Defective?

This is all dependent on whether or not the product was flawed during the design and manufacturing process or whether or not your employer failed to maintain that product. If the product was flawed during the design or manufacturing process, you may be able to file a personal injury suit against the manufacturer. However, if your employer failed to ensure the product was safe and knew about the dangers that existed, you may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer.

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Construction Accident Injury?

If you have suffered serious injuries or have lost a loved one due to a construction accident, you might be able to file a lawsuit against one of the following parties:

  • General contractor
  • Subcontractor

  • Architectural firm responsible for the site
