Construction sites of all sizes and complexity are dangerous workplaces. Whether you are working on a multistory tower in Eau Claire or putting a roof on a single-family home in Menomonie, you can suffer many of the same types of injuries. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation benefits in Wisconsin are often not enough to cover expenses and losses caused by a construction site injury.
At Wagner Law, LLC, we file claims against negligent third parties and their insurance companies, when appropriate. Third-party cases allow you to receive additional financial compensation for losses from a construction injury that are not covered by workers' compensation, such as pain and suffering. Learn whether you have a third-party claim above and beyond your workers' compensation claim by discussing your injury with one of our attorneys.
The Many Dangers of Construction Work
Accidents on construction sites can involve cranes and heavy equipment, falls from ladders and scaffolds, power tools and other machinery, negligent safety procedures, faulty or defective equipment, and numerous other issues. All of these problems can result in catastrophic or fatal injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Burns and scarring
- Fractured bones
- Crush injuries and suffocation
We Have the Necessary Experience to Fight for Your Rights
With such serious injuries, construction workers need considerable compensation to cover their losses—often more than what workers’ comp provides. This is why talking to a lawyer about a potential third-party case is so important.
