Construction Site Accidents

A construction worker injured on the job can usually qualify for workers' compensation, but may have an additional claim against another negligent party. Even when a workers' compensation claim is approved, it doesn't fully replace lost income, and frequently falls short of covering all of the damages compensable in a personal injury case.

A civil case coordinated with a workers' compensation award can provide fair justice for you and your family. If you have suffered a serious injury on a work site, the personal injury lawyers at Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C., in Appleton, Wisconsin, will investigate the incident to determine if there is "third-party" liability that warrants a personal injury claim.

You don't have to be a construction worker to be injured at a construction site. People walking near a construction site can be injured by falling debris or unsafe conditions caused by the construction. If you have questions whether an injury you suffered near a construction site warrants a civil case, call us to schedule a free consultation.

We have recovered a number of large settlements for workers who were injured on construction sites when the injury was caused by the negligence of another company or entity. Our work accident experience provides us insights on what to look for and what questions to ask during our investigation of your accident in order to obtain this proof.

We settle many of our cases without the need for a trial, but we always prepare a case as if we will go to court, and we do not hesitate to do so if a fair settlement cannot be reached.
