Our Attorneys Can Take on Your Employer or Any Other Responsible Party.
When we take your case, we will first determine who was responsible for your accident. There might be more than one responsible party in your case. Your employer may be responsible, it might be a third party, or it could be both.
To win damages from your employer, in almost all cases we must file a workers’ compensation claim. If someone other than your employer was partially or fully responsible for your injuries, we can pursue compensation using a more traditional negotiation process or, if necessary, a lawsuit.
Workers’ Compensation Claims
Workers’ compensation is an insurance program most private-sector employers must participate in. If an employee suffers an injury on the job, they can file a workers’ compensation claim and receive financial help to pay for their treatment and other losses. As long as your employer is in compliance with the workers’ compensation program, we must use this process to win damages. We cannot file a private lawsuit.
In a perfect world, workers’ compensation is a win-win for employers and employees. For employers, it protects against outside lawsuits and prevents a worker’s injury from destroying the company financially. For employees, in theory, it offers an easy, streamlined way to receive compensation after an accident.
Unfortunately, the program is not as perfect in practice as in theory, as many injured employees come to discover when they receive a denial for their claim. Your employer might use one of several arguments to try to deny your workers’ compensation claim, such as:
- Your injury occurred due to your own carelessness; or
- You were under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of your accident.
Our attorneys can anticipate and counter such arguments, helping you to receive the compensation you deserve.
As we investigate your construction accident, we might identify a party other than your employer that shares in the responsibility or is solely responsible. This could be a job site owner, a product manufacturer, or someone else. In this situation, we can approach the responsible party and the insurance company directly and demand compensation from the third party. If the responsible third party does not agree to a fair settlement outside of court, we can file a lawsuit and take your claim all the way to trial.
