Individuals who are injured as a result of construction site accidents need representation by skilled attorneys. At Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, we are familiar with the issues affecting injured construction workers, those who are injured off-site by conduct occurring on construction projects, and construction deaths. Construction sites are inherently dangerous and careful site management and supervision is required to protect workers and the public.
Construction Site Accidents: Workers Compensation v. Personal Injury Claim
Although your injury may have occurred at work and would typically be covered by workers compensation laws, you may still be entitled to compensation above and beyond your workers’ compensation benefits. Therefore, it is important to retain attorneys who know how to overcome the barriers that are often caused by the workers compensation system.
For example, if your injury was caused by a defective product, machine, or tool, you may have a product liability claim. Inadequate safety precautions, dangerous design, architectural defects or errors can also result in alternative avenues of liability. If you contact us, we will examine and investigate your case from every perspective.
