Jobsite Catastrophic Injuries or Death Not Covered by Workers’ Comp. Lawyer

Construction and other jobsites which use heavy equipment and machinery can be dangerous for anyone near these areas. Employees, those passing by, contractors and anyone near the jobsite can accidentally be harmed in a catastrophic accident, causing serious injuries or death. While workers’ compensation can cover employees, not everyone is covered under this insurance. When a jobsite injury or death occurs, it may require filing a lawsuit to obtain compensation for medical bills, lost income and other damages.

Workers’ compensation does cover most employees for injuries and death benefits. However, a subcontractor that owns his own business or someone walking by a jobsite is not covered under workers’ compensation if they are seriously injured or killed. Depending on the circumstances, it may be considered the fault or liability of the general contractor, property owner or another third party. If faulty equipment was to blame, it may be a product liability issues against the manufacturer of the product.

Jobsite Injury or Wrongful Death Lawsuits

When someone is involved in a serious accident on a jobsite that is not covered by workers’ compensation, the victim and their family may face enormous expenses. Medical bills, lost income, rehabilitation and other factors can jeopardize their financial well-being. If the victim loses their life, their family may be devastated and face financial hardship. Jobsite injury or wrongful death lawsuits can help recover compensation for the victim and their families. Each situation is unique, but there is often a liable party that has the responsibility to cover the expenses of the injured person or compensate the family for their loss.
