Fighting For Those Injured In Construction Accidents
Construction sites can be hazardous places. Those managing these sites have a duty to protect not only their workers, but also visitors to the site and those passing by. Unfortunately, many still experience accidents on these job sites.
At Paige J. Donnelly, Ltd., our attorneys are dedicated to supporting injured people in LOCATION and the surrounding area. We help injured people – whether workers injured on the job or pedestrians passing through a construction site – fight for the compensation they need after construction site accidents.
Offering Support To Injured Construction Workers
People involved in the construction industry might be confronted by unsafe or dangerous work conditions on a daily basis. On a construction site, there are often multiple employers who have or share responsibility for an injured worker.
If you are injured while working at a construction site, you may receive worker’s compensation benefits if the injury occurs in the course of your employment. Worker’s compensation benefits will help pay for your medical bills and partial reimbursement of any lost wages. If your injury is caused by a third party other than your employer, you might have additional claims against that third party for damages that worker’s compensation does not cover.
Offering Assistance To Pedestrians And Other Nonworkers
Not everyone injured on a construction site is a worker. Nonworkers passing through construction sites may face some of the same risks that workers experience without the benefit of protective equipment. Dropped tools may strike them from above. They may be involved in an accident with a construction site vehicle. Unmarked potholes can create hazards for vehicles and pedestrians alike. They may even find themselves exposed to invisible hazards like airborne chemicals and other toxins.
Thankfully, those injured when passing through a construction site may have legal options. If you were injured on a construction site, a personal injury claim may allow you to hold those managing the site responsible for their negligence. You may also be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, your time away from work and the suffering you have experienced.
