Who's liable for a construction injury?

You love working in construction because your job is there to make things better for everyone. You create beautiful structures, make repairs and generally do the work that many others would find too strenuous.

The reality still remains that construction is a difficult job that has many dangers. From exposure to electricity to worrying about passing vehicles and the drivers who may not be paying attention, you're always at risk of being hurt.

The best thing to remember about your injury, if it does occur, is that you'll have options when it comes to making a claim. In some instances, you'll have what's known as a third-party claim.

What is a third-party claim?

Imagine you're at a worksite with a construction crew that was hired in to help. The new team doesn't follow the exact same methods you do, but that's not really an issue. What is an issue is when they cause an accident. If you get hurt as a result of the new team's actions, then it's likely that you'll have to file a third-party claim against them. They caused your injuries, so you'll be able to hold them accountable.

Many construction workers are independent contractors, which can make the situation even more complicated. Fortunately, your attorney can take a look at your case and help you decide who you can hold liable for injuries you suffer on the job. When you're hurt, you need to know that you'll be able to get the medical care you need and have the financial support you deserve from those at fault.
