Boston Workplace & Construction Accidents  Attorney

Construction sites are one of the most dangerous places to work, and the slightest negligence can result in catastrophic accidents. In addition to workers directly hired for a project, there are often many third-party workers on site at construction sites and other workplaces. When an accident occurs because of a third-party’s actions, injury victims may be entitled to collect more compensation than they realize. The Law Office of Joseph Linnehan, Jr. has the experience you need after a Boston third-party workplace or construction site accident. To learn more about the wide range of legal services offered to our injured clients, call or contact our office today.

Examples of Third-Party Accidents

Third-party accidents can take many forms, with individuals or businesses being liable if their negligence led to an accident on a construction site or other workplace. Common third parties who may be present at a job site include subcontractors, delivery drivers, inspectors, product manufacturers, service installers, and others. Third-party accidents on construction sites and in other workplaces often involve the following:

  • Defective equipment or tools,
  • Uneven or hazardous stairs, ladders, or scaffolding,
  • Slip and falls,
  • Electrical hazards,
  • Collapsing ceilings, walls, and trenches,
  • Fire hazards and explosions,
  • Exposure to toxic fumes or chemicals,
  • Inadequate lighting,
  • Installation of defective security, and
  • Vehicle accidents

Compensation with Third-Party Liability

When hurt on the job, an injured worker in Massachusetts is entitled to collect workers’ compensation benefits, which include wage loss replacement, medical expenses, vocational rehabilitation, and compensation for any scarring or disfigurement; however, when a third-party is found partially or fully liable for an accident, the injury victim may be able to collect compensation from them directly.

Workers’ compensation often does not fully cover the financial losses of an injured employee, but seeking damages from a third-party responsible for the accident can help cover any gaps in compensation. Damages available from liable third-parties include:

  • Any outstanding medical bills,
  • Lost wages,
  • Loss of future wages and earning potential,
  • General household expenses,
  • Rehabilitation costs,
  • Property damage,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Emotional distress, and
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.

The Benefits of Hiring a Qualified Injury Attorney

After a workplace accident, handling the physical recovery along with a legal case can be overwhelming for many injury victims. Hiring a skilled and qualified injury lawyer can help alleviate that burden and provide the expertise necessary to pursue a claim against a third-party for compensation. The benefits of hiring an attorney after an accident are manyfold, including:

  • Handling all communication with insurance companies,
  • Negotiating a full and fair settlement of the case,
  • Conducting an independent investigation into the accident,
  • Identifying all possible liable parties to the accident, and if necessary
  • Taking your case to trial
