Know Your Rights If You Are Injured On A Construction Job
Construction areas, manufacturing plants and other work sites are dangerous places to work. Accidents often result in catastrophic injuries and leave a worker with long-term and permanent disabilities. Sometimes, these workplace accidents are fatal.
The experienced personal injury lawyers at Mallilo & Grossman Attorneys at Law advocate for injured workers and their families. Injured workers often revert to the workers’ compensation system to recover medical costs and a portion of their wages without exploring the possibility that they may be able to pursue a personal injury claim.
If you are injured in a workplace accident, it is wise to consult with our experienced personal injury attorneys. It will cost you nothing to have us review the facts of your case and may result in recovering a substantial amount in personal injury compensatory damages.
We Protect Your Rights When You Are Injured At Work
Accidents that occur at construction sites are frequently caused by unsafe conditions or result from negligence on behalf of a third-party contractor. An employer may apply pressure to only pursue workers’ compensation benefits, or may even look for loopholes that will deny your right to workers’ comp benefits.
We have a thorough understanding of the laws that apply to workplace accidents. You should know that you can receive workers’ compensation benefits and still pursue a personal injury claim if the facts of your case warrant doing so. We represent injured parties in a wide range of personal injury lawsuits related to work injuries, including:
- Falls from ladders and scaffolding
- Falling debris
- Electrical malfunctions
- Crane accidents
- Unsafe or defective equipment
- Improperly stored materials
- Heavy equipment failure
- Building collapse
- Gas explosions or fires
- Toxic fumes
