Who Is Liable for My Construction Accident?

Liability is a legal theory indicating the party to be held responsible legally and financially for damages. In a workplace accident, your employer may have workers’ compensation insurance that will cover some of your damages. However, other parties may also be partially or fully liable as well.

  • Contractors or Subcontractors – If a company other than your employer did something negligent that caused your injuries, then they may have to pay you compensation for your damages.
  • Property Owner – The owner of the construction site may be held liable for dangerous or defective property elements, such as stairway collapse or failure to remove ice and snow.
  • Machinery Manufacturer – The builder of a machine or product may be responsible through the theory of product liability for dangerous and defective equipment that cause injury.
In some cases, you can receive workers’ compensation as well as compensation through a third party personal injury lawsuit. This will ensure you are able to recover all of your damages.

Compensation in Construction Accident Cases

There are two ways that you can get compensation in a construction accident case. In some cases, you can use both paths.

Workers’ Compensation

When you file a workmans’ comp claim against your employer’s insurance company, you are able to get medical bills paid as well as a portion of your lost wages. You can get money if you become disabled, aren’t able to return to your prior work, and if your loved one dies. A workers’ comp claim can be complex, and they often get denied. It’s best to work with a Los Angeles workers’ compensation lawyer when you make a claim.

Personal Injury Lawsuit

If someone other than your employer or a coworker partially or fully caused your injuries, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against them. This is often called a “third-party” lawsuit. You can get 100% of your losses compensated through a PI lawsuit, including all of your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
