Columbus lawyers who hold negligent third parties accountable
When construction workers are injured on the job in Columbus, they are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits include coverage of medical expenses and partial lost wages while they can’t work. Workers aren’t allowed to sue their employer, no matter who caused the accident.
Workers can take legal action against a third party whose negligence caused the accident. Third parties can include vendors, contractors and manufacturers of defective equipment. Our firm can help you file a lawsuit to recover compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement and emotional distress.
Columbus construction workers can be injured in many different types of accidents. These include being hit by falling objects, falls from ladders or scaffolding, slips and falls, fires, explosions, power tool accidents and construction vehicle crashes.
Recovering financial compensation from a negligent third party can be complicated after a Columbus construction accident. These third parties often deny doing anything wrong and don’t accept responsibility for what happened.
Don’t expect much help from their insurance companies. Insurance companies are always concerned about the bottom line and want to keep their profits high. That means they’ll try to keep your payments low. They may blame you for causing the accident or question the seriousness of your injuries.
