What is the Difference Between Workers' Comp and Third Party Claims?
Workers' Comp Claims:
The unique facts and circumstances of your construction accident will determine your available legal options. If you were injured on the job, for example, you may have the ability to file a workers' compensation claim through your employer.
Our firm has considerable experience handling workers' compensation matters from initial applications through appeals. We help injured workers recover benefits for medical treatment, partial coverage of lost earnings, and in some cases disability benefits.
Third Party Claims:
In matters where construction accidents involve third-party negligence, our firm can help victims pursue compensation by filing a third party lawsuit, or personal injury claim. Examples of instances where this may be possible include injuries caused by:
- Defective equipment
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Negligent third party companies performing work on a site or nearby
Our construction injury attorneys can evaluate your particular accident in order to determine the best approach to your case.
