Construction jobs are consistently ranked as one of the most dangerous jobs out there. Accidents arising from unsafe workplaces and unsafe construction sites, ladder falls, scaffolding falls, falling debris, trench collapses, and accidents caused by heavy equipment or defective tools all too often result in catastrophic injuries. If you are a construction worker who has been injured on the job, you are entitled to seek monetary compensation for your injuries. The attorneys at Bruno Law represent victims of all types of construction accidents. We are dedicated to protecting your rights and will fight to recover the maximum monetary compensation that you deserve.
If you have been injured at your workplace, you should be entitled to recover workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation insurance is offered by the majority of employers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey to cover damages related to an injury that occurred as a result of a job-related accident. A worker who is entitled to workers’ compensation can receive coverage for medical bills and lost wages resulting from the accident.
Third Party Lawsuits
Although workers’ compensation laws apply to workplace construction accidents, there are certain cases where the worker can also obtain economic relief from other parties besides their employers who may be deemed liable for the accident. For example, if you are a subcontractor, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim against the general contractor if the accident was caused by an unsafe worksite or poorly maintained premises. Likewise, if you are injured as a result of defective equipment, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim against the manufacturer of the equipment. If you prevail in a third party claim, you may qualify to recover monetary damages for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium.
