Massachusetts Construction Site Accident Defense Attorneys Protect Contractors

Experienced injury lawyers fight claims by construction workers in the Worcester area

Construction sites are dangerous workplaces. In fact, one out of five worker deaths in the United States involves construction workers. Every ladder, walkway, platform or rail has the potential to turn into a slip or a fall. However, just because a worker has been injured doesn't mean an employer must pay. The attorneys at Ramsey Law Offices, P.C. work to minimize your company's exposure through settlements and third-party claims. We defend contractors and other construction site employers in the Worcester area and throughout Massachusetts to limit their liability.

Knowledgeable advisers know the most common dangers on worksites

Nearly every item, tool or machine on a construction site is capable of causing injury. Workers are often hurt by falls, falling objects, crushing and exposure to dangerous materials. The most common causes of worksite deaths are falls, falling and moving objects, electrocutions, and getting caught or stuck in between surfaces. In most cases, these employees can seek workers' compensation benefits.

Proven advocates help to minimize workers' comp claim exposure

Workers’ compensation is the standard way for injured workers to get reimbursed for on-the-job injuries. These employer-paid benefits generally cover medical bills and partial wages for the duration of the time that an employee is injured. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, meaning employers cannot be sued for negligence when workers file workers' comp claims.

If your company self-insures or is responsible for making workers' compensation payments, we can help. Our attorneys work to minimize your payout in workers' comp claims to construction workers by challenging the cause of the injury, the severity of the injury and the employee's inability to work. By using medical experts, we seek to prove that the worker was injured off-the-job, that his injuries are very minor or that he is capable of returning to work. We are often able to convince workers to settle their claim to minimize and finalize your costs.

Established firm handles third-party claims

While the law prevents workers from suing their own employer, it does not prevent lawsuits against other people or companies on a construction site. Workers are frequently able to bring negligence claims against other contractors, subcontractors and property owners. The law also lets employers bring third-party claims so that they can be compensated for payouts to employees through workers' comp. Our lawyers will work with you to bring a negligence claim against any party whose actions caused you financial loss. Because we defend contractors, we may represent clients on either side in third-party construction accident claims. Our attorneys present a strong defense using all available evidence to prove that your company was not negligent by negotiating settlements and fighting claims in court.
