Northern Kentucky Construction Accident Lawyers
Workers in the building and construction trades suffer among the highest rates of injuries of all industries in America. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) report says that as high as 10 percent of all construction workers will lose time away from work during the year as a result of an injury on the job. Most injured construction workers are covered by their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. What many workers do not realize, however, is that they can sue for additional money damages if the accident was the result of negligence or misconduct by a third party.
What Is A Third-Party Injury Claim?
When an injured worker files for workers’ compensation, he or she gives up the right to sue the employer for additional damages. However, negligent parties such as the property owner, subcontractors and construction equipment manufacturers may be held liable for compensating the victim beyond the workers’ compensation payments. These negligent parties are referred to under the law as third parties.
