Recovering Compensation in Construction Site Accidents
Construction site accidents are as dynamic as they come. Persons liable for your injury may include construction site owners, manufacturers of faulty equipment, general contractors, sub-contractors, or any other third party.
Construction site accidents may be of various types. The most common ones include:
- Slip and fall accidents in construction sites.
- Defective construction equipment.
- Electrocution at construction sites.
- Crane accidents
- Burn injuries at construction sites.
- Accidents leading to death.
Depending on your case – and with the help of an excellent San Luis Obispo construction accident lawyer – you may be able to institute a claim against more than one party.
Our brilliant attorneys at Steven P. Roberts can chase multiple claims for you and get you multiple compensations.
Injuries sustained in construction sites can lead to severe physical, financial, and psychological pain for victims and their families. Workers’ compensation benefits can only go a little way in assuaging your loss. By filing a lawsuit against a negligent party, an attorney may be able to help an injured employee recover:
- Loss of wages;
- Medical expenses;
- Property damage;
- Ongoing living expenses;
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of consortium for widows or widowers.
In these cases, time is often of the essence. This is because state law usually requires that claimants in personal injury cases file their claim within 2 years of the date the event occurred. Failing to file within this period may prevent you from recovering compensation and will bar your claim.
Reaching out to a skilled San Luis Obispo construction accident attorney will help you preserve your claim and improve your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve.
