Morgan & Morgan
What Are Some Common OSHA Violations at Construction Sites?
Common OSHA violations at construction sites include inadequate fall protection, lack of proper training, unsafe scaffolding, failure to provide personal protective equipment to workers, electrical hazards, and violations related to hazardous materials. Identifying these violations can help establish negligence and liability.
I Was at Fault for the Construction Accident. Can I Still File a Workers' Comp Claim?
It doesn't matter who was at fault, and that's because workers' comp is designed to provide benefits regardless of fault. This insurance offers medical coverage and wage replacement (up to a certain limit) to injured employees.
I Am Collecting Workers' Compensation Benefits. Can I Still Sue Other Parties?
In some cases, you can. While you generally cannot sue your employer if you're receiving workers' compensation, you may be able to file a lawsuit if a third party's negligence contributed to the accident. This allows you to seek additional damages (from the third party) beyond what workers' comp covers.
What Are Some Common Reasons Insurance Companies Deny Construction Accident Claims?
The biggest reason is that insurance is a business. To minimize losses, they'll likely cite issues such as disputes over liability, insufficient evidence, pre-existing conditions, failure to report the incident promptly, or discrepancies in medical records. But since we are big and powerful, we have the resources to investigate your case and stop insurance companies from acting out of bad faith.
What Evidence Will I Need to Prove My Case?
Although each case is different, generally, you'll need evidence such as accident reports, medical records, witness statements, photos of the accident scene, documentation of safety violations, and any communication with your employer or insurance companies about the incident. Again, if you have a valid claim, we may be able to gather the most important evidence to support your case.
