Were You Injured in a Fall While Working at a Building Site?
For many construction workers, the biggest fear of injury on a job site is from a fall. Whether falling from a high floor or slipping off the roof of a single-story rambler, a serious fall from a ladder, scaffolding or building can mean that you are out of work for an extended time.
Most builders and construction workers are covered by their employers' workers' compensation insurance. Injured workers can file a claim for workers' compensation benefits, which usually waives their right to sue their employer for further negligence. Unfortunately, workers' compensation is typically not sufficient to cover the full extent of medical treatment and lost earnings.
You are also entitled to seek damages from any third parties that may be held liable for your injuries. These parties can include the manufacturer of the ladder or lift equipment, the subcontractor responsible for setting up the scaffolding, and even the property owner who failed to inform the work crew about potential instability problems on the site.
