At the Orange County Law Offices of Carlson & Johnson LLP, we protect the rights of construction workers across Southern California. From workers’ comp to personal injury claims, we can help you face any challenges of the future.
Compassion Today · Compensation for the Future
All workers are entitled to workers’ compensation, but most workplace accident victims are limited in the compensation they can receive. However, due to the complicated nature of construction sites, many injured construction workers are eligible to receive financial and medical benefits above and beyond workers’ comp, by filing a personal injury claim.
You cannot file a personal injury claim against your employer or a co-worker. However, you can file a personal injury claim against a third party for an accident on a construction site. If a separate subcontractor or a defective product was responsible for the conditions that led to your accident, you may be able to file a personal injury claim in addition to your workers’ comp.
Our job is to do everything possible to maximize your compensation. That means exploring both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims. We will explore all applicable insurance policies and look at all options, from product liability to subcontractor negligence. With extensive resources and experience, we are not afraid to pursue claims against any party.
