Construction Vehicle & Machinery Accidents
Many construction workers operate commercial vehicles and machinery both on and off the job site. When a poorly maintained vehicle or defective piece of equipment causes injury, it is possible for the construction worker to pursue both a work comp claim through their employer, as well as a third-party tort claim against against any negligent parties.
If you have been injured by the following types of construction vehicle and/or equipment you should consider contacting an attorney:
- Dump trucks
- Concrete mixers
- Lift buckets
- Road graders
- Earth movers
It is unfair for construction workers to be saddled with expensive medical bills as a result of third-party negligence. If you or someone you know has been injured by a work vehicle or faulty equipment in the work place, you may be entitled to additional compensation beyond workers’ comp.
Road-Side Construction Accidents
Due to the fact that construction sites are often exposed to the public, it is possible for accidents to occur involving vehicles and other parties not associated with the construction site itself. Motorists who drive too fast through a construction zone or are texting on their cell phone can cause very serious injuries to the men and women on the construction site.
If you or your loved one was harmed by a negligent motorist while working on a construction site, legal action may be appropriate.
Recovering Damages Following a Construction Accident
Though a construction accident may result in a workers’ comp payment and/or insurance settlement, that does not mean you will receive adequate compensation for your pain and suffering.
Montana’s work comp benefits are not robust and rarely cover the long-term expenses associated with a construction injury. With an attorney advising you, it may be possible to hold negligent third parties liable for the damages you have suffered, including:
- All lost wages
- Medical bills such as surgery and physical therapy
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of established course of life
