Working in the construction industry means facing hazards in the workplace every day. And when accidents happen, they can result in severe injuries. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you need someone on your side who can help you get the compensation you deserve. At Lopez Franco, we have a proven track record of helping injured construction workers get the compensation they need to rebuild their lives. 

Understanding Why a Construction Accident Could Result in a Personal Injury Claim

In most construction accident cases, the worker can file a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation allows workers to receive benefits to cover their medical bills and their lost income without having to prove fault. This means that workers can get benefits even if no one is at fault and typically begin receiving benefits within a couple of weeks of their accident. 

The problem with workers’ compensation is that it will not cover all of your losses. It will cover only two-thirds of your lost income and will not cover non-economic losses such as your pain and suffering. Unfortunately, though, worker’s compensation extinguishes any claims you may have against your employer. However, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim if a third party, such as a negligent independent contractor or other non-employee, or the manufacturer of a defective piece of machinery caused your accident. 

To fully understand all of your options, the best thing to do is contact a construction accident lawyer. Our team can review your case and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about moving forward.
