If you have been seriously injured while working at a construction site, the laws are complicated.  You are entitled to Workers Compensation, but you may also meet an exception to the law that bars lawsuits by employees against employers and you may also have a claim against a third party.  This is why you would benefit from hiring a Construction Accident Attorney to help you obtain compensation.

There are many claims to file for benefits, and possibly lawsuits to file against several entities.  Once a settlement is proposed you will also benefit from the advice of an experienced Construction Accident Attorney that knows how much your case is worth.  You should also know that a Construction Accident Attorney usually works on a contingency fee, so you don’t have to pay any money up front.  You certainly have nothing to lose by having a free consultation.

What Is Negligence?

You’ve probably heard people say that you can sue for negligence when you’ve been injured, but you might not know exactly what the word means.
