What is a Construction Accident Case?

A construction accident case is a claim for financial compensation. It is brought by a victim of a construction accident. The person who brings the case may or may not be on the job at the time of the accident. It’s a third-party case, and it’s separate from any workers’ compensation case, although the claims may be related. The purpose of a construction accident case is to give the victim fair financial relief for their economic losses and non-economic suffering because of the construction accident.

Why Not Just Bring a Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Workers’ compensation in Tampa is indeed one avenue for relief when you’re hurt while working in construction. Workers’ compensation is based on the fact that an employee might get injured while doing the bidding of their employer. It doesn’t depend on fault between the employer and the employee. It pays the bare minimum to the victim for medical care and a reduced amount for lost wages.

 

However, a Tampa construction accident attorney can help you explore ways to more fully and fairly receive compensation related to a construction accident. In the construction industry, there are often many parties involved in a single project. There are subcontractors and multiple parties that work together to bring a project to life. 

 

Because of the many parties involved in a construction project, there may be a party other than the victim’s direct employer who is responsible for the accident. When someone else contributes to the accident because of negligence, the injured victim may have a construction accident case directly with that party. The claim may allow the victim to receive pain and suffering and other damages that wouldn’t be possible in just the workers’ compensation case. 

Tampa Construction Accident Cases vs. Workers Compensation Cases

Ultimately, both types of cases may be necessary to ensure that the victim gets fair compensation. However, there are reasons that it may not be beneficial for a particular victim to do both types. Understanding the difference between third-party construction accident negligence cases and workers’ compensation cases is critical to appropriately advocating for a victim’s best interests.

 

Our Tampa construction accident attorneys understand the intricacies of the law, and we can ensure that you file the right case or cases to best represent your interests.

What Can I Win if I Bring a Tampa Construction Accident Case?

Here are some of the types of compensation that you can receive if you bring a Tampa construction accident case:

 

  • Payment for medical bills both in the short-term and long term
  • Cost for physical therapy and other efforts for medical improvement
  • Lost wages and lost career path
  • Property damages
  • Mental health treatment including anxiety and PTSD
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of lifestyle; compensation for life changes due to new limitations

 

A construction accident is a major life event. The damages that you receive should fairly represent your injuries and losses. You must evaluate each category of compensation individually to prevent losing out on the compensation that you need and deserve.
