When you consider everything that makes up a construction site, from the heavy, powerful equipment to the power tools to the structures that are not always completed or secured, to the scaffolding, open pits, all the people moving around – it’s easy to see that this is an extremely place to be. Neither workers nor others on a job site are safe and without the right safety precautions in place, a person can easily become injured.

In many cases, construction sites don’t have sufficient warnings posted, they have workers who aren’t experienced or trained correctly, or job sites are not sufficiently closed off from the public. If you have been injured as the result of a construction accident then we urge you to contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.

We can help your case in a number of ways

There are many ways we can help you after an accident on a construction site. First, we can gather the necessary evidence to prove who was liable for the accident. We can work with you to find the caring and compassionate doctors who can provide the medical assistance you need, even if you don’t have health insurance or the money to pay them out of pocket.

We will ensure that the doctor fully documents your injuries and the impact they have on your life. We can pay your medical bills while you’re healing and your case is pending, and help you avoid financial difficulties if you’re unable to work. We’ll start by determining which type of claim to file on your behalf and will work to get you the full and fair compensation you deserve.

We may file a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury claim

It all depends on the facts of your case, but it’s entirely possible that you’ll be able to secure compensation for your damages through workers’ compensation. In other situations, you may secure compensation through a personal injury claim. In some cases, you could do both at the same time.

Though they may be filed for the same injury, workers’ compensation and personal injury claims aren’t the same. A workers’ compensation claim is applicable if you were working and injured on that job for any reason. They do cover medical bills and other damages but they do not have an option for requesting damages for your pain and suffering.

A personal injury claim can also get you compensation for your medical bills, along with lost wages, earning power, etc., and pain and suffering. You can file a personal injury claim if you were injured due to a third party acting negligently. You also don’t have to have been working at the site. For example, if a person was walking by and injured by scaffolding collapsing on them, or a bystander was hit by a falling object, they could have personal injury claims. The easiest way to find out for sure is to contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.
