Causes of Construction Accidents

Nevada construction accidents can happen for a number of reasons, such as the following:

Liability for Construction Accidents

Liability for construction accidents depends on a number of factors. First, if the victim was a construction worker who was injured on the job, he or she may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and possible third party claims. If the construction accident victim was not a construction worker, negligent parties may be held liable in a personal injury accident. At Robert M. Apple & Associates, our skilled construction accident lawyers help clients pursue all possible legal claims in an effort to obtain maximum financial recovery.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits for Construction Accidents

Injured construction workers are generally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for on-the-job injuries. Nevada law places a number of requirements on injured employees regarding medical treatment and supporting information that must be provided in order to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. Accordingly, it is highly recommended that you seek the assistance of a knowledgeable Nevada workers’ compensation lawyer like those at Robert M. Apple & Associates.

Depending on the circumstances of your workplace accident, you may also have a third-party claim in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation laws prohibit employees from suing his or her employer following a workplace accident, but they do not preclude an injured worker from bringing a personal injury lawsuit against a responsible third-party.

Personal Injury Claims for Construction Accidents

Sometimes the victims of construction accidents are not construction workers. For instance, a pedestrian could be injured by falling debris or by falling on an unmarked construction hazard. If this is the case, the construction accident victim may be entitled to compensation from any negligent parties – such as the general contractor or subcontractors – in a personal injury lawsuit.
