At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we are experienced trial attorneys committed to pursuing third-party claims for people injured in a construction site accident.Our goal is to help you obtain maximum compensation for your medical bills, future medical needs, lost wages, pain, suffering and other losses.

If you are a construction worker injured on a job site, you may have a third-party bodily injury claim in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits.

Because you are covered by workers’ compensation, you cannot sue your employer if you are hurt at work. However, construction workers’ injuries are often caused by third parties – by negligence on the part of general contractors, subcontractors or property owners, or by defective tools or machinery.

If your injuries were caused or partially caused by a third party, you have the right to file a personal injury claim against that third party in addition to filing a workers’ comp claim.

Construction Site Accident Claims

Our attorneys have handled numerous third-party personal injury claims involving construction site accidents.

For example, in one recent case, our client was a plumber working on a construction site. He was injured after slipping on leftover drywall material.  He initially thought he did not have the right to file a claim due to workers’ compensation laws. However, Russell & Hill, PLLC was able to seek and win damages by identifying and proving that his injuries were caused by the negligence of a third-party drywall contractor – not our client’s employer.

In another recent case, our client was injured in a construction site accident when he stepped backward into a stairwell and landed on his back one floor below. At first, he felt he could not file a claim because he collected workers’ compensation benefits through his employer. However, a third-party contractor was responsible for the absence of a railing around the stairwell.
