Injuries Are Common On Construction Sites

Injuries occur frequently on construction sites and in industrial plants. This is due to the dangerous nature of the work. Routine tasks pose danger. The different types of equipment and tools used, sometimes well off the ground, only increase the likelihood for injury.

At Foster Law Firm, our attorneys are experienced in handling cases for individuals injured under a variety of circumstances at construction sites and other industrial work sites. We are familiar with the interplay between the laws of workers' compensation and negligence laws relating to the parties potentially liable to you for your claim, as well as the nature and extent of workers' compensation benefits you may be entitled to.

Seeking Compensation From All Available Resources

In South Carolina and North Carolina, injured employees cannot sue their employers — their benefits are limited to workers' compensation claims. However, they may be able to bring claim against another responsible party such as a manufacturer of a defective product which caused injury or the negligence of another contractor or subcontractor. These actors may be additionally liable to pay for damages.

However, there are certain time limitations within which claims for both workers' compensation and negligence-based claims may be brought. If these time limitations are ignored, individuals lose their right to all compensation.

If you or a family member have been affected by an accident or injury of this type, we will be glad to talk to you about your legal rights under these circumstances. Please contact our firm to ask to speak with one of our attorneys concerning your case.
