Hard Work, Heavy Equipment and Rugged Conditions That Lead To Accidents Can Complicate The Search For Accountability
Even with strict safety rules and regulations, a construction site remains a dangerous place to work. If safety regulations are ignored, dangerous equipment is not serviced, employees are not properly trained, or hazardous areas are not marked, a serious accident remains a real possibility.
Construction Site Third-Party Liability Claims
If you have been injured in a construction site accident, Goodrich & Geist can help you understand your rights and options beyond, or in addition to, a workers' compensation claim.
When your construction accident occurred by the negligence of someone other than your employer, you still have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. This is called a third-party liability claim. Whether you are a site employee, site visitor, contractor or subcontractor who was injured, you may be entitled to compensation under such a claim.
The challenge in the cases comes from complex job site conditions and difficulties in tracing liability. However, by using our years of personal injury experience, expert analysis, and a knowledge of OSHA and other safety regulations, our law firm has been able to secure fair and favorable results for many past victims.
