If you are a construction worker who has suffered an injury at a work site, you likely have questions about your immediate care and your future. The Los Angeles construction accident attorneys at Effres & Effres are available to speak with you about your case and can determine if you are entitled to compensation. Call (818) 222-9720 today!

Understanding Workers’ Compensation for Construction Injuries

Any construction worker who has suffered injuries in the workplace is automatically eligible for workers’ compensation. Workers compensation benefits will help pay for your medical expenses and lost wages after an injury. However, workers’ compensation benefits do not include compensation for human losses such as physical pain, mental suffering, and disfigurement.

Although workers’ compensation benefits will begin immediately after a worker has suffered an injury, they are often meager. Workers’ compensation benefits are also not an indication of fault, or are they often enough to cover your mounting expenses. It’s important to identify whether there are other parties that can be held liable in a third-party personal injury claim to ensure that the consequences of your injuries do not escalate from bad to worse.

The Role of Third-Party Claims

When injuries are caused by the negligence of any other parties besides your employer, you may be eligible to file a third-party claim.

If your injuries were caused by any of the following reasons, you may be eligible to file a third-party claim:

In all the above-mentioned cases, there may be other parties, besides your employer, who are responsible for the activity that resulted in your injuries. For instance, if a subcontractor erected defective supporting resulting in your injuries, you can name him in a personal injury claim.

Third-party claims provide a valuable source of compensation recovery for you, in excess of workers’ compensation benefits, so that you may recover for physical pain, mental suffering, disfigurement, and other human losses. Our firm proudly represents residents throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.
