Fight For Benefits After A Construction Site Injury
Since your injury, nothing has been the same. You are unable to work and have been battling constant pain. The bills are piling up faster than you can open them. Fortunately, you can take immediate action to seek relief.
At Ellis Law Offices, our attorneys are proud to represent injured construction workers and give them a voice in and out of the courthouse. We communicate with the insurance companies so you do not have to. Our lawyers will work tirelessly for your medical expenses to be paid and to help you obtain fair compensation.
The Dangers On Construction Sites
As a construction worker, you are exposed to hazards every minute you are on site. The reality is that even if you received proper training, you can still be at risk. We have handled construction accident cases involving:
- Scaffolding collapses
- Defective equipment
- Collisions with a construction vehicle
- Tripping on debris
No matter the type of injury you sustained on a construction site, our attorneys want to hear from you. From minor to catastrophic injuries, we will explain your options for obtaining compensation.
Understand Third-Party Liability And Workers’ Compensation Claims
In addition to pursuing workers’ compensation claims, you may be able to file a third-party liability claim. For example, if you fell off a ladder at work, you can file a claim against your employer. However, if your fall was caused by a defect in the ladder, you can also pursue a third-party liability claim against the equipment manufacturer.
Since 1963, our attorneys have worked closely with injured construction workers to manage workers’ compensation and personal injury claims simultaneously. With vast experience in both areas, we can help you determine who is at fault and who should be held responsible.
Do Not Miss The Statute Of Limitations
In Massachusetts, you only have four years from the date you are aware that you sustained a work-related injury to file a lawsuit. For personal injury cases, the window is even shorter giving you three years to file from the date of the injury.
Filing a claim now is imperative to obtaining benefits. Call our lawyers at 508-644-6325 or request a free consultation online to visit our Worcester or Fitchburg office. We also make home and hospital visits upon client request. Se habla español. Tiếng Việt. ΜΗΛΑΜΕ ΕΛΛΗΝΗΚΑ.
