What Damages Can a Construction Accident Lawyer Help Me Recover?
The damages available to the plaintiff after a construction accident vary from case to case. Typically, the injured — or their loved ones in the case of a wrongful death — can recover compensation for:
- Past, present, and future medical bills related to the injuries the victim sustained;
- income lost due to missed work during recovery;
- the physical and emotional distress caused by the accident and its consequences;
- permanent injuries or scarring; and
- funeral expenses, loss of support, and emotional suffering (in the case of a wrongful death claim or lawsuit).
Once we've determined that you may have a viable case, we will investigate the matter and explain to you the kind of damages you may be able to recover if you win the case.
Who May Be Liable in a Construction Accident Case?
In construction accidents, multiple parties may share a certain degree of responsibility, sometimes partly, other times as a whole. Let's take a look at some potentially liable parties below.
- In accidents caused by an employer's negligence, such as failing to provide proper safety training or equipment, the employer in question may be held responsible.
- Other third-party contractors, such as drivers, working at the construction site might be liable if their actions contributed to the accident.
- If the accident occurred due to defective machinery or equipment, such a case would fall under the umbrella of product liability (also known as defective product liability), where the manufacturer, distributor, or even advertiser of the faulty products could be held accountable.
- You may also be able to hold the property owner or manager responsible, especially for hazardous conditions on the construction site, if these conductions caused your injuries.
