Providing Construction Accident Victims The Counsel They Need

If you have been injured in a construction site accident and your injury was caused by someone other than a co-worker, you may be entitled to additional compensation through a third-party personal injury lawsuit. This type of compensation is different from your workers’ compensation benefits and can be a crucial means of support.

At McKnight and McKnight Law, APC, in Bakersfield, our California personal injury lawyers aggressively represent construction workers and other people who have been injured on construction sites by negligent third parties. Our lawyers understand the law, the complexities of such cases, and how to obtain results for our clients in settlement negotiation or at trial.

What Is A Third-Party Claim?

If the accident was caused by a third party – such as a contractor who works for a different employer, the property owner or the manufacturer of a piece of equipment – you can sue the third party in a personal injury lawsuit. Unlike workers’ compensation, which provides benefits only for medical costs and a portion of your wage loss, a third-party claim can enable you to obtain compensation for all losses, including pain and suffering.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, the third-party claim can therefore provide significantly more compensation than you would receive from the workers’ compensation system alone. Our lawyers are thorough in their approach and aggressively represent every client in third-party cases.

Experienced Third-Party Claim Lawyers For Construction Injuries

Construction sites typically involve multiple contractors who work on the same project or on the same jobsite. Such sites also involve:

  • Fall hazards
  • The use of heavy equipment, such as cranes
  • Construction vehicles
  • Electrical hazards
  • Trench cave-ins
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Additional equipment that can cause serious or fatal injuries

With all of these risks and multiple parties involved, the potential for third-party claims is high in construction site accident cases.
