Construction & Work Site Accidents
Attorneys in Kansas City, Missouri
Construction sites can be very dangerous places, in spite of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and any workplace practices put in place by employers. If you or a loved one has been injured in a worksite accident that was caused by a third party such as a subcontractor, or that involved a defective product, you should consult with a Kansas City construction accident lawyer to learn whether you have a claim for recovery beyond workers’ compensation.
Worksite Accident Compensation Coverage
At Dougherty & Holloway, LLC, our attorneys have more than 30 years of experience handling third-party claims for individuals injured on construction sites. We can determine if your claim against a third party is valid, as it may result in further compensation for your injuries. In addition, we can determine how a lawsuit may affect your workers’ compensation coverage.
We Have Successfully Achieved Significant Settlements and Verdicts for On-The-Job Construction Injuries Involving:
Work vehicle accidents
Forklift and machinery accidents
Construction work product liability
Falls from elevations
Injuries from dangerous materials within the workplace
Highway work zone injuries
Our attorneys will sit down with you to discuss the events surrounding the accident. We will investigate what happened and how it happened and look for all possible negligent parties to hold you accountable for your injuries.
We understand that workers’ compensation does not adequately cover your needs after an accident and that you may have problems getting your employer’s insurance company to cover your accident-related medical expenses. By filing a third-party claim, you may be able to obtain full and fair compensation for your injuries.
