Contractor Work Accidents | Industrial Injuries

Workers have a right to have a safe place to work, and there can be several parties responsible for making sure that the work and worksite are in fact safe. Jarve Kaplan Granato Starr has helped many injured workers recover money for losses that result from unsafe conditions during the construction process and unsafe conditions on construction worksites in general, and other unsafe conditions in a variety of industrial and work settings.

As a result of work accidents, generally there are two types of claims-Worker’s Compensation Claims and potential “Third Party Claims.” The Workers Compensation claims are the claims of the injured worker against his or her employer resulting from the fact that the worker was injured on the job. The “third-party” claims are potential claims against a third-party who was not the injured worker’s employer or co-employee who was negligent and caused an unsafe condition. 

Worker’s Compensation benefits do not compensate the injured worker for all of the injured worker’s damages and losses, but with respect to claims against third parties who may have caused the unsafe condition and the accident, the injured worker can potentially recoup money for all of his or her losses. As a result, the potential third-party claim is very important.

Many times workers are not guided to consider potential claims against third parties who may have caused or contributed to their accident. Jarve Kaplan Granato Starr has unique experience in identifying potential third parties who may be responsible for construction and work site accidents, and, as noted, this is important because the potential money recovery in a third-party claim can greatly exceed Workers’ Compensation benefits. Jarve Kaplan Granato Starr considers and handles both the Worker’s Compensation claims and the third-party claims.

Accordingly, if you have a potential claim involving unsafe construction conditions, like lack of fall protection, an unsafe construction process, a dangerous excavation, unsafe construction equipment, guards, hand rails, ladders, scaffolding, a failure to provide the proper safety equipment, a failure to protect construction materials which results in an unsafe condition, wall collapses and a failure to properly brace walls and trenches during the construction process, Jarve Kaplan Granato Starr is a perfect fit for you because we have experience in and have successfully handled these types of claims.

Additionally, Jarve Kaplan Granato Starr has significant experience in handling many claims involving industrial accidents. For example, we have recovered money damages as a result of accidents involving high-speed overhead doors, elevators, forklifts, industrial rope, man lifts, and other industrial equipment accidents.
