Spokane Construction Fall Injury Lawyer

Falling on a construction site can easily lead to serious injuries and substantial medical bills. Find out if you can seek damages through a personal injury claim by speaking to a Spokane construction fall injury lawyer.

If you fell while working at a jobsite, you can file a workers compensation claim, but rarely does work comp provide enough to fully cover all of the damages that follow a serious injury. While the superior compensation offered by a personal injury claim isn’t always an option for workplace injuries, under certain conditions, it is possible.

A Spokane construction fall injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you investigate and determine whether you have grounds to proceed with a claim.

 

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit for a Jobsite Fall

Most workplace accidents are limited to seeking a settlement through workers compensation. For you to be able to sue your employer, they need to either not carry work comp insurance or have intentionally placed you in harm’s way.

For example, if your job involves climbing a ladder and you fell, that would not constitute egregious negligence unless your employer knowingly failed to provide the right-size ladder. Proving misconduct such as this becomes easier if your employer was previously cited for a similar violation in the past.

 

Suing a Third-Party

It is far easier to sue a third-party who was responsible for your construction fall. This may include any of the following examples:

  • Safety Equipment Manufacturer – If your harness or other safety gear failed to function properly due to a defect, you can sue the company that produced it.
  • Platform Manufacturer – If you were working on scaffolding or a platform that broke or gave way, it could be due to a design flaw.
  • Contractor – If a contractor from outside of your company somehow caused your fall, they need to compensate you for your injuries.
  • Passerby or Driver – If a civilian was passing through the worksite and somehow caused you to fall through carelessness, this would justify filing suit.

 

Financial Compensation for a Worksite Fall

Workers compensation will pay for your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages. While a good stopgap, this may not come close to what you will need to maintain your lifestyle or make a full recovery.

A personal injury lawsuit could allow you to seek a settlement to cover all of your financial losses and non-economic damages:

  • Your remaining lost wages (the portion not paid by workers compensation)
  • Any loss of benefits
  • Transportation expenses
  • Medication, medical devices, and procedures not covered by work comp
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Pain and suffering

If you are filing a lawsuit on behalf of a loved one who died in a construction fall, we will seek compensation for the financial contributions he or she would have made to the household, along with the pain and suffering experienced by your family.
