Construction Site Injuries

Injury at the Workplace

If you have been injured or hurt on the job, be aware that the employer and you may not have the same interest at heart. You may not get straight answers from our employer or its’ insurance companies, and they may try to minimize the compensation they pay out. As a result, you may not receive all of the compensation you need and deserve. If your injury happened because of the negligence of a third party, you may also be entitled to an additional source of compensation - one that can possibly compensate you for your emotional losses and pain and suffering, as well as your financial losses.  Call us for more information.

Our Injury Lawyers will determine whether there is some party other than your employer who is responsible for your injury. Examples of third party claims::
  • If you were injured in a construction accident caused by another contractor, or in a gas explosion caused by another contractor who cut the line, you may have a claim.
  • If you were injured in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or bicycle accident in the course of your work, (for a sales representative this might include a trip that begins at home) your own car insurance and that of the driver who caused the accident are responsible for your loss.
  • If you were hurt at work as the result of faulty or defective equipment, a product defect, a car defect, a poorly designed tool, or another dangerous product, you may have a product liability claim.
  • If you were injured in a slip and fall accident caused by faulty building maintenance, a construction site accident caused by property owner, or were injured by toxic exposure from your work, you may have a premises liability claim.
  • If you suffered a dog bite injury while delivering a package, you have a claim against the dog's owner.
Unlike workers' compensation claims, a personal injury or auto insurance claim can entitle you to full wage reimbursement, treatment by your own physician, compensation for pain and suffering and compensation for mental anguish. In some cases our attorneys can demonstrate that our client lost the potential for an even greater future income, and in some cases of reckless conduct the injured worker maybe entitled to punitive damages.

In addition to a personal injury claim, our Injury Lawyers can help you apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) if you have become permanently disabled. At the Law Office of Carabin & Shaw, our attorneys and staff are committed to providing clients with responsive and effective legal services. If you have been injured in a workplace accident, it is important to have a lawyer on your claim in order to see that you are being treated fairly. The call is free and the consultation is free of charge.
