Considerations When Dealing with a Construction Accident
When a construction accident occurs, you must consider not only the issues associated with a personal injury claim, but those that arise as part of a workers' compensation claim. It is important that your lawyer understand workers’ compensation laws and what effect they will have on your personal injury claim. Additionally, there are often many different people and companies working at a construction site. When an accident occurs, there may be multiple parties responsible. It is imperative that a thorough investigation is performed in order to identify all potentially liable parties.
