Construction Law Is in Place to Help You
Skilled construction accident lawyer, Kathryn Burmeister, will carefully evaluate your case to identify which parties may be liable for your injury according to construction law. Depending on the unique details of your situation, the following may be liable:
- Construction site owners
- Equipment manufacturers
- General contractors
- Additional third parties
Through careful investigation and interviewing of witnesses, Attorney Burmeister will determine whether you can file one of more of the following claims:
- Third Party. In this case, you must prove someone other than your employer was negligent and that this action or inaction led to the injury.
- Defective product. If a defective product directly caused your injury, you and your attorney may file a suit against various parties in the distribution chain, including, retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers.
- Workers compensation. If you are entitled to workers’ compensation insurance benefits, you typically cannot file suit against your employer. To receive these benefits, you only need to prove that your injury happened while on the job, regardless of the circumstances.
Depending on the individual circumstances, your attorney may decide to file a workers’ compensation claim in addition to claims against third parties.
