Construction workers don’t deserve to have to work in an unsafe environment. Unfortunately, this is sometimes the situation they’re placed in. While there are times when the construction company is liable for the injuries the worker suffers, this isn’t always the case. There are instances in which the worker suffers harm because of defective equipment.
When you’re injured by a piece of defective equipment, you can turn to a third-party lawsuit against the manufacturer to seek compensation for the damages. This is often preferable to filing for workers’ compensation, so be sure to explore your options thoroughly before you make any decisions.
We’re here to help you sift through the possibilities. We work closely with you to ensure that we know exactly what happened and what types of damages you’ve suffered. We want to be sure that you get what you need to recover. There isn’t any reason why a victim in this type of accident should be held financially accountable for the impacts.
There are many different ways that this type of incident might impact you. Medical bills and lost wages are often the two primary ones that people think about. You may also have some personal care costs and other life impacts that need to be considered as part of your case.
Because there are time limits built into the laws, you need to ensure that you take action quickly after you’re injured. We know that this is a stressful time and that you need to focus on trying to heal. We’re here to take care of the legal matters so you can handle other things.
