Construction accidents caused by a third party are subject to additional financial recovery over and above whatever workers’ compensation you may be eligible to receive. The Law Office of Aiken & Aiken investigates the scene of an accident, takes photos, interviews witnesses, and consults with medical professionals to determine the cause and scope of your injuries. Even if you are employed without a written contract your employer can be held liable for injuries you sustain on the job site – regardless of whether or not you are officially a citizen of the United States. If you are not on the payroll and are not covered under worker’s compensation, we can still hold your employer financially responsible for your injuries.

What Third Party Liability Means
Typically, when an injury occurs on a job site, the employee is covered under the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. When someone other than the employer or a co-employee (third party) causes an injury to the employee, regardless of whether or not the injured employee receives workers’ compensation benefits from his employer, we can file a clam against that third party. Depending on the severity of your injuries, while your workers’ compensation claim may pay your medical costs, it will not pay you for pain or suffering. That’s why it’s important to pursue third party claims, even if you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
