Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
A construction site accident can involve multiple levels of legal proceedings. It can include a premises liability claim, where you would bring your case against the property owner who is in control of the worksite, or a worker’s compensation claim, where you would seek relief from your employer. If your accident was caused by the negligence of a third-party on the site, such as a contractor or visitor, you may also need to pursue a personal injury claim based on negligence. Based on your circumstances, you will need to proceed in one or multiple of these directions.
