The days and weeks that follow a construction accident are often difficult, both physically and emotionally. A severe injury usually means lots of physical pain. While this gets better with time, it can take a toll on you. Compounding that stress is the long to-do list that usually follows an injury. Your to-do list may feature items such as juggling doctor appointments, filing insurance paperwork, and keeping your household in order and your bills paid, in spite of your pain.
In the meantime, there is the challenge of making sure you win a fair financial settlement for your injuries.

If any of the above items describe your injury, or even if the nature of your injury is not listed, there is a good chance we can help. The consultation is free, so you can discuss your case with an attorney before determining the best way to proceed.
We Can Help You File a Workers’ Compensation or Third-Party Claim.
In the course of investigating your accident, our first objective is to identify every party that could bear responsibility. Because most construction accidents are work accidents, one of the responsible parties is likely to be your employer. There could be others, as well. The type of claim we pursue depends on the identity of the responsible party or parties.
If your employer is the sole responsible party, we have to file a workers’ compensation claim to win damages. However, if we identify that a third party—such as a separate owner of your job site or a manufacturer—is partially or fully to blame, we can file a more traditional insurance claim against them. There is a good chance we will end up doing both, as construction accidents often feature more than one responsible party.
The workers’ compensation system is generally our only option to recover damages from your employer. The existence of this system—and your employer’s mandatory participation in it—effectively shields companies from lawsuits by injured workers. As long as your employer is in compliance with workers’ compensation, we cannot sue if you get injured on the job.
In a perfect world, workers’ compensation would be a good thing for both the employer and the employee. It helps the employer by acting as a protective shield against legal liability. Workers’ compensation helps the employee because it ostensibly provides a streamlined, cut-and-dry system to receive compensation after a work injury.
Unfortunately, workers’ compensation is not always streamlined, nor is it cut and dry. Your employer has several ways to deny claims, such as claiming that your injury occurred due to reckless or negligent behavior, or by stating that you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of your injury.
The team at Cordisco & Saile LLC can anticipate any challenges by your employer. We can counter such challenges with strong evidence on your behalf.
If a third party, such as a manufacturer or job site owner, shares in the responsibility for your injury, we can pursue this party with a separate personal injury claim. Depending on the party’s identity, it might be a premises liability claim, a defective product claim, or another type of legal action.
