Se Habla Espaņol

Most employers cover work-related injuries through workers' compensation insurance. However, employers don't always provide accurate information to injured workers, making it difficult for them to get the benefits owed them. Additionally, in cases involving negligence on the part of contractors and subcontractors, injury victims may be able to recover additional damages from the third party that caused an accident.

At the Fox Law Group, our attorneys represent injured construction workers in workers' compensation cases and lawsuits against third parties. When necessary, we consult medical experts to verify our client's injuries and work with accident investigators, safety experts, and eyewitness testimony in exposing negligence on the part of contractors and subcontractors.

It's important to collect evidence and begin an investigation as soon as possible after a construction accident. If you've been injured in a construction zone, contact job injury attorneys at the Fox Law Group today.

Causes of Construction Accidents

The personal injury lawyers at the Fox Law Group represent construction workers injured in accidents involving the following:

  • Collapsed scaffolding
  • Electrocution
  • Falling debris
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Back hoe accidents
  • Fork lift accidents
  • Crane accidents

Running into Difficulty in Filing for Workers' Compensation

In filing for workers' compensation, your employer may ask that you see their insurer's doctor to verify your injuries and condition. Occasionally, an insurer's doctor may claim your injuries are the result of pre-existing condition or downplay their seriousness. Additionally, after your exam you may be told that you can return to work sooner than your injuries allow for.

Our attorneys can help refer you to medical specialists or work with your current doctor to document your injuries and challenge the claims of an insurance doctor. If necessary, we will go to court in order to leverage your case, protect your job, and ensure you receive the compensation and rest time you need and deserve.

Third Party Liability - When Workers' Compensation isn't Enough

When negligence on the part of a third party results in serious, catastrophic injuries, workers' compensation may not be enough to cover medical costs and lost wages. In these cases, it may be necessary to sue the negligent third party responsible for causing the accident that resulted in your injuries. Working with investigators and safety experts, we identify OSHA violations and general negligence that leads to serious accidents involving our clients.
