Who is liable in a construction accident?
Workers’ comp only prevents you from suing your employer. In a construction injury claim, most of the time the person who’s working in that setting is not working alongside coworkers.
They’re usually actually working alongside other contractors who can be negligent if they did things that contributed to the injury that our client suffers. What’s critical to understand is that we’re not going to just assume that this is workers’ comp and that we can’t help people make claims for injuries against negligent actors in a construction setting accident claim. We successfully prosecute these claims, not against our client’s employer or any of their coworkers; it is sometimes actually against the other contractors who had been negligent in what they had done that contributed to an injury.
