Injured on a Construction Site? Call (314) 926-9144 Today
Accidents are very common on construction sites, as there are countless hazards associated with this line of work. As a matter of fact, construction is often considered one of the most dangerous sectors to work in. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), thousands of construction workers are killed in workplace accidents each year. And that’s not even considering the many workers and passersby injured in nonfatal construction accidents.

Seeking Compensation as an Injured Construction Worker
For the most part, employees are prohibited by law from suing their employers over a workplace injury. State law instead requires injured employees to seek compensation through a workers’ compensation insurance claim. (If a workplace accident resulted in death, a surviving loved one may be eligible to file a claim on the decedent’s behalf.) When approved, the claimant will be entitled to compensation for their financial, or economic damages. This may include:
- Hospital bills
- Emergency room visits
- Follow-up doctor’s visits
- Current and future lost wages
- Vocational training
Fortunately, employees can seek workers’ comp benefits regardless of whether they were at fault for their injuries.
When Can You Sue for a Construction Accident?
If you were injured as a passerby, you may sue the person or company at fault for the construction accident. Injured construction workers may also sue if their employer harmed them intentionally or if a third party was responsible for the accident.
Third-party claims differ from workers’ comp claims in two ways:
- You will need to prove that another’s negligence was at fault for the accident; and
- You can recover both economic damages, like medical bills, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Potential Liable Third Parties in a Construction Accident Claim
Third parties commonly at fault for construction accidents include:
- General contractors
- Equipment and product manufacturers
- Property owners
- Property management companies
- Motorists driving by or through a construction site
