A Construction Site Can Be Hazardous
Construction sites are dangerous places. Despite state and federal safety regulations, construction workers are regularly involved in accidents at job sites throughout the state.
If you have been injured in a construction accident, it is important to discuss your case with a lawyer who understands the construction industry and knows how to get results for you. At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., our attorneys have decades of experience helping injury victims obtain just compensation for damages suffered in workplace accidents.
Physically Devastating, Legally Complex
Construction accident claims can be legally complex as well as physically devastating. We will carefully investigate all the facts to determine what happened and who is responsible for the damages in claims involving:
- Ladder and scaffolding accidents
- Falling objects
- Crane accidents
- Falls from heights
- Forklift accidents
- Other heavy machinery accidents
- Auto accidents in construction zones
In most cases, injured construction workers are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits only. These benefits include medical treatment and a portion of their average weekly wage.
You Could Receive More Than Workers’ Comp
However, if you were injured by a person or organization other than your employer or a co-worker, we may be able to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and property damage. These so-called third-party claims typically yield more money for injured construction workers.
