Understanding Your Rights After A Construction Accident
Accidents and injuries happen all the time in the construction industry. Sadly, many of these accidents are preventable. No matter how the accident occurred, if you were injured on a construction site, you may have important legal rights and benefits.
At the Law Offices of William A. Curry, P.C., we can protect those rights. Our lead attorney has spent more than 35 years representing injury victims in Massachusetts. We handle not only personal injury claims, but also workers’ compensation claims for construction workers and their families.
Personal Injury Versus Workers’ Compensation
Personal injury law and workers’ comp often overlap, especially when it comes to construction accidents. So how do you know which type of claim to pursue?
Generally speaking, if you were injured on the job, you are likely entitled to workers’ comp benefits regardless of whether negligence is involved. If negligence was a factor, you won’t be able to sue your employer directly. Nonetheless, you may still have strong personal injury claims against third parties that contributed to your injuries – for example, other contractors or the construction site owner. You could even have both a workers’ compensation and personal injury claim.
Because we handle both types of cases, our firm offers an advantage in this area. We know what to look for in identifying strong claims. Our lawyers and staff will closely examine the details of your situation to determine the best course of action. Ultimately, our goal is to get you a fair and just resolution as quickly as possible.
