Construction sites can be very dangerous places. Even though you know that when you walk into the site does not mean that the project manager, owner, builder, or other in-charge person cannot be held responsible for injuries you sustain on a construction site. Whether it was a workplace injury, you were injured when walking by, or another scenario, at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we are here to help.

You Have Found a Law Firm That Will Fight for You
There is no way around it: You need an attorney who will work tirelessly for you and you have found that attorney in The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker. The services we will provide depend on the specifics of your case.

The Difference Between a Personal Injury Claim and a Worker’s Compensation Claim
When injured on a construction site, there are two types of injury claims that may apply: Workers’ compensation and personal injury. The main advantage of filing a workers’ compensation claim is that there is no need to prove who was at fault for the accident – even if it was your fault, you can make a claim. That said, workers’ compensation cases do not allow for damages for pain and suffering.
When a worker decides to instead file a personal injury claim, they can get compensation for a wider range of damages, which would include pain and suffering, lost wages, past medical bills, and future medical bills. This type of claim also applies when the injuries were caused by someone who was not the victim’s employer.
Examples of Construction Site Injuries that Can Happen to Bystanders and Workers
Of course, not everyone who is injured on a job site works there. A pedestrian can be injured when scaffolding collapses on them, a bystander can be hit by a falling object, or a person can trip over construction equipment. Workers can be injured when using a defective power tool or by the negligence of a sub-contractor’s actions.
