St. Louis Construction Site Injury Attorney
Statistically, one out of every 10 workers in the building and construction trades will be injured on the job in America every year. Building and land development sites are among the most dangerous workplaces in America. Heavy equipment, unsafe power tools, inattentive subcontractors and defective products all come together on a single job site, putting workers at risk of a career-ending accident every day.
We Will Seek Compensation From Every Negligent Party
If you were injured on a construction site in Missouri, you may be entitled to seek additional compensation for financial damages, beyond Missouri workers' compensation. Talk to an attorney at Bley & Evans, LC, as soon as possible. We are not a workers' compensation law firm. We will put you in touch with a worker's comp attorney, if you do not yet have one. If you collect workers' comp, you will typically forfeit all further claims for additional money damages from your employer. However, you may have a case for suing any negligent 'third party' found to be responsible for your accident and injuries.
- Third party lawsuits may be filed against:
- Negligent property owners
- Designers and manufacturers of dangerous and defective construction tools and equipment
- Independent subcontractors on the job site who are guilty of negligence or misconduct
