Establishing Liability In A Construction Accident Case
It is important to have legal representation that you can trust on your side. Insurance companies may attempt to limit liability in order to avoid paying you. Having your own legal team that protects your legal rights helps ensure that you are able to collect the compensation that you deserve.

Collect Necessary Evidence
Our legal team will track down the necessary evidence to determine liability. We will also gather documents that attest to the impact of the accident on your life. These are just a few of the documents that we will collect on your behalf:
- Medical records
- Witness statements
- Employee records
- Expert witness statements
- Training manuals
Navigate Your Legal Case
There are many steps involved in a construction accident case. Determining which party is at fault will help us decide the best legal route to take. For example, if your employer caused your accident, you are likely eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
However, if another party is to blame or your employer was not carrying workers’ compensation at the time of the accident, then we may need to seek compensation through a third-party claim.
Depending on the legal route that we take, there are specific time limits and requirements that we may need to follow. In order to file a workers’ compensation claim, we need to notify the employer within a set period of time. Additionally, there are time limits for filing your paperwork.
If a third-party lawsuit makes sense to your case, then we must file your case within two years from the date of the accident. This time limit can come fast and it takes time to collect information to build your case. It may also be more difficult to rely on witness statements if we wait too long to file. It is crucial that you discuss your case with a construction accident lawyer as soon as possible.
Manage All Communications
You may receive constant communication from the other legal team, workers’ compensation representatives, or insurance adjusters. Our injury lawyers will manage all communications for you, allowing you to focus on your recovery.
Construction accidents can get expensive. By the time you seek medical care and take time off work to recover, you may already be in a difficult financial situation. Additionally, construction injuries can require ongoing medical care and may also prevent you from returning to the same line of work.
We will consider all the ways in which the construction accident has and will impact your life. We will include the following costs when calculating your damages:
- Medical bills (current and future)
- Property damage
- Lost wages and work benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Temporary transportation
- Childcare costs
- Pain and suffering
Zanes Law understands the importance of non-economic costs to your case. The cost of pain and suffering can sometimes be more impactful to your life than the economic costs.
