Taunton Construction Accident Lawyers
If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to a financial recovery in addition to workers’ compensation if the accident was caused by someone other than your employer. This is known as a “third-party claim.”
Under Massachusetts workers’ compensation law, you cannot sue your employer for a work injury. However, you do have a right to sue third parties. On a construction site, a third party may be a general contractor, a subcontractor, an equipment manufacturer — in short, anyone other than your employer or a co-worker. Contact us for a free initial consultation to discuss all of your options.
