Hope For Compensation After A Construction Accident
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.
Do You Have A Third-Party Liability 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/an:
- General contractor
- Delivery service
- Equipment manufacturer
In short, anyone other than your employer or a co-worker may be considered a third party. If your accident was a result of the negligence of a third party, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim or lawsuit against that person or entity. Contact us for a free initial consultation to discuss all of your options.
A Work Injury Attorney Can Review Evidence For Negligence And Liability
Most traumatic injuries at construction sites result either from falls or falling objects. Many of these accidents are the result of negligence. For example, a subcontractor working on the same job site might fail to cover a hole in the floor, install a barrier or secure a scaffold. That subcontractor, then, may become the subject of your legal claim for financial relief.
