Independence Injured Workers Lawyer
Anyone who has spent time on a construction site is aware that hazards are all around, with heavy equipment in operation and chaotic vehicle traffic a common condition. When a motor vehicle accident occurs, it may involve a pedestrian, large truck, earth mover or other vehicles and the consequences are often severe.
Many people benefit from workers' compensation insurance coverage when they suffer injuries on the job. However, it is important to realize that these benefits are limited in their scope and effectiveness in enabling you to achieve maximum personal recovery. If you have been injured or disabled on the job — or lost a family member in a construction site accident — an experienced lawyer will look at other angles for helping you recover financial damages.
Can a Company Other Than Your Own Employer Be Held Liable for Negligence?
Your employer is protected from personal injury lawsuits, but a substantial number of vehicle accidents on construction sites involve parties other than the victim's employer. To determine whether this type of third-party liability may apply in your case, we encourage you to turn to the metro Kansas City construction site vehicle accident attorneys of Humphrey, Farrington & McClain.
Our Missouri-based, nationally proven legal team is dedicated to thorough investigation of construction accidents and determined to help individuals and families recover meaningful compensation they need to move forward after:
- Collisions between trucks and other work vehicles owned and operated by contractors, subcontractors and other companies
