When you are covered by workers’ compensation, you are not able to sue your employer if you’re hurt on the job. In the case of construction work, there is always a chance that your injury was caused by a third party. This can include negligence of general contractors, the property owners, or the subcontractors involved in your work, as well as defects in tools and machinery that you were using.
If you believe that your injuries were fully or partially caused by a third party, you have the right to file a personal injury claim against that third party. If you are in the Spokane Valley area, let our experienced construction site accident attorneys handle your case and remove the stress of the legal work from you.
Our professional, proven, and personal attorneys in the Spokane Valley will handle your case with the same dedication, hard work, and passion we bring to every construction site accident claim we’ve successfully represented.
Here’s a recent example of a client we represented: Our client was a plumber who had slipped and fallen on the remains of some drywall material. At first, he thought he had no grounds to file a claim because of workers compensation laws. However, we were able to win his case by proving that the third party involved was responsible for his injury by identifying negligence on part of the drywall company, not our client’s employer.
Another example is a client of ours who was injured at a construction site. He stepped backward into a stairwell and fell flat on his back on the floor below. He did not think that he was eligible to file a claim because he had already collected the benefits of his workers’ compensation from his employer. However, we also found that a third party was responsible for his injury because of the absence of a guard railing around the stairwell.
