Anchorage Alaska Construction Accident Attorney
Every year thousands of workers are killed or seriously injured while working at construction sites.This occurs even though many state and federal regulations, as well as industry standards, require owners, general contractors and sub-contractors to implement a wide variety of safety measures.
A worker injured at a construction site or on the job will usually have the Workers Compensation available to pay for medical expenses and lost wages.
Although workers’ compensation aides employees while injured on the job, it is usually not sufficient to fully compensate injured workers for all damages sustained as a result of their work-related accident.
Under Alaska law, in most cases, employees cannot sue their employers for damages sustained as a result of a work-related accident. Therefore, in order to receive reasonable compensation for their injuries, workers must commence third party lawsuits against parties other than their employer.
These cases routinely involve claims against third parties including manufacturers of defective equipment, landowners who provide unsafe premises, contractors, and neglectful equipment operators.
Construction Accident Attorney Mr. Robert Stone will assist you in determining if you have a claim against a third party and help you achieve maximum compensation for your construction related injuries.
