Legal Help For Injured Construction Workers

Most construction workers in Minnesota are covered by their employer's workers' compensation insurance if they are hurt on the job. However, workers' compensation pays, at most, only two-thirds of your wage loss, and it is also "capped" at an amount often far less than you earn. Workers' compensation will also not compensate you for pain and suffering and other financial damages related to the injury.

Third-Party Lawsuits

In many cases, accidents on construction or building sites are the result of another party's negligence. It could be the property owner, a contractor on site, the manufacturer of defective equipment or materials or even a co-worker. When you file for workers' compensation, you will not have the option of suing your employer for additional damages. However, you are entitled to seek additional compensation from the "third party" whose negligence or misconduct caused the accident or contributed to your injuries.
