How Escovar Law, APC Can Help

Construction work is one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States.

Types of Construction Accident Claims

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to get specific permits, perform routine inspections, and implement work safety protocols to prevent workplace accidents. However, failure to follow the safety procedures and product defects often lead to avoidable construction accidents. Furthermore, there could be several liable third parties, such as construction site owners, contractors, construction machinery manufacturers, architects, and engineers.

The following are the types of construction accident claims injured workers could be eligible for:

  • Workers’ compensation – In most cases, injured construction workers are not allowed to bring a lawsuit against his/her employer because they are automatically entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ comp insurance covers medical bills and lost wages due to missing time from work to recover from injury. It is important to consult a personal injury attorney regarding work site accidents to determine all potential sources of liability in order to maximize compensation.

  • Personal injury – If a third party’s negligent actions caused a worker’s injury, the injured worker may potentially file a personal injury lawsuit.

  • Product liability – If a worker’s injury was caused by a defective product, then he/she may be able to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer, retailer, wholesaler, and/or maintenance company.

  • Wrongful death – If a worker dies in a construction accident, his/her surviving family members may recover death benefits from workers’ compensation insurance and/or file a wrongful death lawsuit.
