Construction sites are staffed with workers from numerous employers and contractors. When accidents and injuries occur, it is not unusual for multiple parties to be involved. If your injury was caused by a contractor or other employer, you likely have a third-party negligence case.
At Johnstone & Gabhart, LLP, we have considerable experience with third-party negligence cases. In these cases, you can recover damages that are in addition to your workers' compensation benefits, including damages for pain and suffering. This extra compensation can be critical in serious cases such as construction accidents. Find out today whether you have a third-party case. For a free consultation with a lawyer, please call 304-553-0830.
You May Be Entitled To Additional Damages From A Negligent Contractor
A third party on a construction site may be another employer, contractors and subcontractors, vendors, suppliers or manufacturers. If any of these parties played a part in your accident, we may be able to file a separate personal injury suit against the negligent party or parties.
Contractor negligence can lead to issues such as:
- Lack of safety procedures
- Lack of communication between groups
- Faulty equipment and equipment accidents
- Inadequate training and experience
- Reckless behavior
With all of the hazards present on construction sites, it is vital that each group acts responsibly. If another party is at fault or partially at fault for your injuries, speak with one of our lawyers as soon as possible. We will review your case and discuss your options with you. If you have a case against a contractor or other third party, we will explain what types of compensation you may be entitled to receive.
