What can I recover with the help of a Philadelphia construction accident attorney?
The purpose of a construction accident claim is to put you in the same position that you may have found yourself in if you hadn’t been the victim of an accident. When you have serious injuries, it’s not possible to fix your injuries by bringing litigation. However, you can recover compensation for your financial losses like your medical expenses. You can also receive compensation that accounts for your pain and suffering and your change in daily life because of the construction accident. It’s not easy to be the victim of a sudden construction accident. However, a construction accident claim seeks to help you financially by covering what you have already lost and what you’re likely to miss out on in the future.
If you try to handle your case on your own, there’s a good chance you’re going to miss valuable types of compensation that you and your family may need. For example, you may claim compensation if your injury changes your long-term career outlook. In the case of a serious construction accident, there’s a good chance that you’re not going to be able to work in construction the way that you did before. Compensation can help you account for the fact that you can no longer earn the same income. An experienced legal team can work with you in order to ensure that you take all of the steps that you need to take in order to receive the full value of your case.
Isn’t my construction accident a part of worker’s compensation?
Your construction accident claim may or may not be a part of the worker’s compensation system. Worker’s compensation is paid by your employer when you are injured on the job, however, you cannot sue your employer even if their negligence caused your injury. In the case of a construction accident, there are often contractors, building owners, material suppliers and other third parties involved who may be liable for your injuries. If you’re able to bring a claim for compensation through traditional negligence principles outside of the worker’s compensation system, there may be damages available to you that are not available in the worker’s compensation system. The best course of action is to speak with an experienced Philadelphia construction accident attorney about your case in order to determine what your rights and options are.
