Construction Site Accidents

Injured workers are covered by their employer’s workers’ compensation benefits when work-related injuries result in short- or long-term disability and the need for medical treatment. However, applying for workers’ compensation can be fraught with difficulties when your employer — or their insurer — challenges your job injury claim. Hiring an attorney not only lets your employer’s insurer know you’re prepared to fight for the benefits owed you, but it can also be an effective means of protecting your job.

At the Law Office of Colonna & Doyle, we represent and defend employees in worker’s compensation cases, as well as workers injured in construction accidents.

If you need additional information regarding workers’ compensation benefits and what needs to be done if you’ve been denied, contact Lynnfield, Massachusetts, workers’ compensation attorneys at Colonna & Doyle today. Our workers’ compensation lawyers can review your case and determine how best to handle it. We represent clients throughout the North Shore of Massachusetts, including the communities of Burlington, Peabody and Woburn.

Peabody Third-Party Liability, Workers’ Compensation, and Construction Accidents

Most job sites these days use third-party contractors to perform various kinds of needed work. As a result, office buildings and construction sites can present different kinds of hazards as subcontractors, roofers, carpenters, food vendors, or electricians enter a work space to perform a job. However, just as your employer can be held liable for injuries that occur to you while on the job, third-party contractors can be held liable for injuries they cause as well.

If your injuries were caused by a contractor or subcontractor performing work at your job site, you can sue them to recover damages in addition to whatever workers’ compensation benefits you are eligible to receive. Depending on the severity of your injuries, your workers’ compensation may not be enough to cover all of your medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. At Colonna & Doyle, we’re prepared to bring action against negligent third parties in construction accident cases and workers’ compensation cases.

Putting You in Touch With Medical Professionals

As workers’ compensation attorneys, we’ve cultivated a working professional relationship with a network of skilled physicians and specialists. If your employer’s insurance doctor attempts to blame your injuries on a prior condition or force you back to work before you are ready, we can refer you to a qualified medical specialist who can verify the severity and nature of your injuries.

We’re prepared to fight for your rights AND defend your job. To schedule an appointment and discuss how we can help you, contact Lynnfield workers’ compensation attorneys at Colonna & Doyle by calling 781-667-2658 today.
