No matter what kind of accident you experienced, we can help answer any questions you may have about your case, such as:
What Type Of Claim Do I File For A Construction Work Accident?
Depending on the nature of your injury, you may be able to collect workers’ compensation, compensation from a personal injury claim or both. If the injury happened at work, you would almost certainly qualify for workers’ compensation, but you will not be able to file an injury claim against your employer. There still may be an opportunity to earn additional income in your situation.
We can work closely with you to review your case to determine if a third party, like a subcontractor, was liable for your injuries and help you file a claim against them. It is possible to collect workers’ compensation and compensation from a third-party claim for your injuries.
What If I Was At Fault Or Partially At Fault For The Construction Accident?
When it comes to workers’ compensation, fault is not really a factor as long as you were injured while you were working and safely performing your duties by operating within employee guidelines and protocol. If you were not wearing proper protective equipment at the time of your injury, for example, you may not qualify for workers’ compensation.
For personal injury claims, Pennsylvania uses comparative fault to determine compensation values. As long as the victim was not more than 50% liable for their injuries, they can receive a settlement that reflects the amount of liability the other party shares. For example, if a court determines that you were 40% responsible for your accident while the other party was 60% liable, you would receive 60% of the total compensation you could otherwise earn in your claim.
