Who is Liable for Your Construction Injury?

Who is Liable for Your Construction Injury?



If you work on a construction site, there is a chance you could suffer injuries in many types of accidents. It is important to know all sources of possible financial recovery for your injuries and losses, and a Matthews construction accident attorney can help.


People who work on construction sites are often susceptible to serious injuries, in part due to the heavy and dangerous equipment that they must workaround. Large pieces of equipment, such as diggers, cranes, tall ladders, and scaffolding, can malfunction, resulting in serious injuries. Construction sites can also be poorly supervised, resulting in a serious accident that leads to injuries.


Workers who suffer an illness or injury while working at their jobs – and while working within the scope of their employment – might be in a position to bring a claim for workers’ compensation benefits against their employer. As an alternative or in addition to a workers’ compensation claim, an injured construction worker might be able to assert a third-party claim against one or more individuals. A third-party claim is filed in order to pursue and recover monetary compensation, in the form of damages, for injuries suffered in the construction accident.


If you have suffered one or more injuries in a construction accident, it is important that you retain an experienced attorney to represent you throughout your personal injury case. The Matthews construction accident lawyers at the Panchenko Law Firm can assist you with filing a third-party claim against a negligent individual or entity who was responsible for your construction accident. We can also help you pursue the compensation and damages that you deserve for the injuries which you suffered.


Please give us a call today to find out more about how we could assist you with handling your construction accident personal injury case from beginning to end.

Basis for a Third-Party Case


If you have been injured in a construction accident, there are several individuals against whom you could file a third-party claim. Those individuals include the following:


  1. Project managers or supervisors
  2. Construction site developers
  3. Manufacturers or distributors of construction equipment
  4. Negligent workers who caused the accident you were involved in


In order for you to be successful in a claim or lawsuit filed against a third party, you must demonstrate that the third party acted unreasonably under the circumstances.

Pursuing Damages in a Third-Party Case


Construction accidents can lead to extremely serious injuries, ranging from soft tissue injuries to severe head injuries to broken bones. If you are able to satisfy the legal elements of your third-party claim, you could pursue various types of damages. Those damages include compensation for all of your medical bills and expenses, lost wage compensation, and financial recovery for all of your pain, suffering, and inconvenience stemming from the accident. An experienced Matthews construction accident attorney could help you pursue the damages that you need for the injuries which you suffered in your accident.
