Protecting All Of Your Interests When You've Been Hurt On A Construction Site
Construction sites are some of the most dangerous places to work. Accidents can occur if safety regulations are not strictly followed, and may occur even if they are. Construction injuries are covered by workers' compensation. If your injury occurred due to the negligence of a third party, you may be able to file a third-party personal injury claim as well.
At Vititoe Law Group, our construction accident lawyers can help you file your workers' compensation claim as well as a third-party claim, depending on the circumstances of your accident. We are well-versed in workers' comp law and know how to determine if another person or entity was at fault for your injuries. We can help you get all of the benefits and compensation you are entitled to receive.
California has no-fault workers' compensation, which means that regardless of how the accident happened, a worker can receive medical and lost wage benefits. However, employers or their insurance carriers may try to deny these benefits, prevent employees from getting the treatment they need, or insist that they come back to work before they are fully healed. Our Westlake Village attorneys will help you pursue all of the benefits you are entitled to when you've been injured in a construction accident.
Third-Party Personal Injury Claims
If your injury was caused by a third party, such as a subcontractor or defective equipment, you may be able to file a personal injury claim for negligence against that person or company. Workers' compensation will cover part of the overall cost of your injuries but in many cases will not compensate you for everything. Filing a third-party claim can help maximize your award.
Our law firm knows how to show fault in cases of negligence and can help you determine whether or not you have a valid third-party claim. If you do, we will pursue all avenues of compensation on your behalf.
