Construction Accidents and Scaffolding Accident Lawsuits
If your injury was wholly or partly caused by a negligent third party, you may also pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Personal injury law allows compensation for pain and suffering, and other elements not covered by workers' compensation law.
In construction accidents, this means that you can sue parties that are not your employer, including construction site owners, general contractors, subcontractors and other parties. Our attorneys can help you explore all of your legal options, so you can pursue the maximum amount of compensation allowed under the law.
