Construction Injury Law Firm Dayton Ohio
Construction sites are one of the more dangerous places to work for a wide variety of reasons, including:
- The physical work environment can change from day to day. Trenches, walls and other elements can be put in place, radically altering the space people are accustomed to working in.
- The presence of heavy machinery puts workers at risk.
- The use of power tools can cause injuries.
- The fact that multiple individual employers (contractors and subcontractors) are working in one environment can create communication breakdowns that leave workers ill-informed of serious hazards such as electrocution or falls.
If you have been injured on a work site, you need to take immediate action to protect your rights and to ensure that you receive the full workers' compensation benefits to which you are entitled. In addition to workers' compensation benefits, there are other possible avenues of compensation.
Did Your Employer Commit A Violation Of A Specific Safety Requirement (Vssr)?
When employers violate specific safety requirements that they are legally obligated to follow, you may be able to secure additional compensation for that VSSR. We can help you hold your employer responsible for any such violations of safety laws.
Was Someone Else Responsible For Your Injury?
If someone apart from your employer such as the employee of another subcontractor was responsible for your injuries, we can help you pursue compensation from that third party. Under workers' compensation you cannot sue your employer, but you can bring a lawsuit against a third party.
