Experienced Riverside Construction Accident Attorneys

Did you know that if you were in a construction accident, you might be entitled to compensation greater than workers' compensation? If someone other than your employer was negligent, careless or reckless, and you were injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation from that company's insurance carrier. This is known in the law as "third-party liability," and oftentimes the compensation is substantially more than workers' comp would pay.

As experienced construction accident and personal injury lawyers, we can examine your claim and help you determine whether third-party liability may apply to your situation. We offer free consultations so you have nothing to lose and possibly a lot to gain. The following are some of the more common types of construction accidents that may give rise to third-party liability claims:

  • Construction vehicle accident — Where a construction vehicle driven by another subcontractor injured you
  • Falls at construction sites — Where your injuries occurred due to a fall at a construction site caused by another subcontractor's work or another person who was not working for your employer
  • Defective conditions — Where your injuries were due to a building collapse or dangerous or defective property condition caused by another subcontractor
  • Dangerous or defective products — Where your injuries were a result of a manufacturer's dangerous or defective product, including power tools, excavation equipment, construction vehicles and building materials

If you were injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to greater compensation than workers' comp. You owe it to yourself and your family to maximize your compensation for any injury sustained in a construction accident. Seek legal counsel today.
