Construction Accidents

Construction Accidents and Work-Related Injuries

Representing Workers and Innocent Bystanders Alike

Despite strict state and federal safety regulations, construction sites are still very dangerous places where workers and passersby are injured on a regular basis. Construction accident victims could potentially qualify not only for workers’ compensation benefits but also personal injury claims against third parties. Manufacturers of defective equipment or machinery, property owners, architects and engineers are common third party defendants. Innocent bystanders injured near construction sites could be able to bring suit against a construction company, project manager, individual negligent parties and manufacturers.

At Cada Law, our lawyers represent individuals in workers’ compensation and personal injury claims. Construction accidents are often complex and may involve several possible sources of liability. Our attorneys will determine who is at fault for your accident and who should be held accountable to pay for your medical bills, lost wages and other expenses.

With more than 50 years of combined trial experience involving countless personal injury matters, we have the knowledge and skill necessary to pursue maximum financial compensation for you.

Workers’ Compensation on Construction Sites

Injured workers generally cannot sue their employers for injuries sustained in construction accidents. Instead, these injuries are covered by workers’ compensation insurance, which pays out benefits to qualifying accident victims. We can help you file for these benefits and also make sure that you receive accurate payments in a timely fashion.

Third Party Personal Injury Claims

If you are a passerby on a construction and are injured, you may be able to file a personal injury claim, since you are not employed by the construction company and are not bound by the laws regulating workers’ compensation benefits.

For workers, however, workers’ compensation may not be the only type of benefits that you are eligible to receive. If a faulty ladder, scaffold, power tool or other piece of equipment was defective and unsafe, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer of that product in order to receive additional financial compensation. General contractors, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and property owners may all be possible sources of liability.
