People who are injured while working in construction are usually entitled to benefits from the North Carolina workers’ compensation system. In some cases, an injured construction worker may be able to seek additional compensation – including money for pain and suffering and other losses – through a third-party claim if someone other than the employer or co-workers caused the accident. Let us review your case and discuss your legal options now for free.
Raleigh and other communities in the Triangle area are booming. The growth means lots of construction jobs. The downside is that construction work includes some of the most dangerous jobs in North Carolina.
If you have been hurt while working in construction – or a close relative has been killed in a construction accident – you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Depending on what happened, you may also be able to bring a third-party claim for additional compensation. Third-party claims apply in situations where someone other than the employer or co-workers did something wrong to cause the accident.
