When Defective Equipment Causes Construction Injury
You may have heard that if you file for workers’ compensation benefits, you can’t file a personal injury claim as well. It is true that workers who file for workers’ compensation benefits generally can’t sue their employers for the harm they have suffered. However, if a third party (like a manufacturer of defective construction equipment) contributes to the accident in question, that third party can still be sued even as the injured worker collects workers’ comp benefits.
Legal Assistance Is Available
If equipment malfunctioning on your jobsite has caused you injury, you almost certainly have the ability to both file for workers’ compensation benefits and file a third-party injury claim. Even if you’re ineligible to file for workers’ compensation benefits, you should still be able to hold the manufacturer of the defective equipment responsible for the harm it caused. Additionally, your action now may save other workers from suffering in the ways you have. Our firm is committed not only to working hard so that you receive as much compensation as you’re entitled to, we will work hard to ensure that no one else is harmed as a result of the same defective equipment. If you haven’t yet connected with our Jupiter construction accident attorney team to schedule a consultation, please do so today; we look forward to speaking with you.
