If you or a loved one suffered an injury due to a trip and fall on a job site, you may be entitled to a personal injury claim above and beyond workers' compensation benefits. That said, pursuing compensation requires comprehensive knowledge due to the complexity of these cases.

Many times these cases involve multiple defendants, including owners, general contractors and/or subcontractors. The process can become more complex considering workers' compensation benefits.


Even when a person is covered by workers compensation, frequently the circumstances of the accident give rise to a claim against some party other than the employer. Any workplace injury should be investigated for other potential compensation as the damages allowed by workers' compensation can be inadequate. These third-party claims can arise against subcontractors at construction sites, manufacturers of equipment and machinery or their operators, property owners, operators of motor vehicles or on rare occasions, against co-workers or supervisors.
