Construction sites can be dangerous places.
There are lots of dangerous jobs, and being a construction worker is definitely one of them. As personal injury attorneys here at Stanley Law, it’s tough to hear the negligence sometimes on behalf of employers, contractor groups, municipalities in keeping a safe work place, safe working equipment, and following safety protocols that protect workers.
Worker’s Compensation and Personal Injury Case
Injured construction workers can almost always turn to worker’s compensation to recover money for medical bills and lost wages. It’s generally far simpler to win a worker’s compensation case than trying to bring a personal injury lawsuit — but you need to know that option is available to you. Often there are cases where a third party may be at fault, and that personal injury lawsuit can bring much greater recovery to the injured worker.
