Third-Party Claim for Construction Injury
Many people who been injured on a construction job believe filing Workers Compensation Claims is their only recourse. This is simply not true. Ask us about filing a lawsuit based on third-party liability.
With Workers Compensation, the construction company you work for takes out special insurance to cover work-related accidents. Often, this type of claim does not provide enough money to pay the entire cost of medical bills, rehabilitation, and lost wages. You have the potential to receive much more for a construction injury from a third-party lawsuit.
Third parties include a number of companies that are involved in the construction project, other than your employer. These may include the following:
- Property Owners
- Equipment Manufacturers

That is a question for lawyers to answer so bring your concerns to us. We will evaluate your case and provide you with an answer that has your best interests in mind.
