Mr. Centracchio uses his construction law experience and his construction industry employment while working his way through undergraduate and law school. Many of our best results are for clients that others did not think was a case. We understand the environment, necessary safety procedures, what can go wrong and what questions to ask. Trust our team to uncover the truth behind your accident, and to determine what factors led to your injury.
Workers’ Compensation Vs. Third-Party Claims; What’s The Difference?
In some situations, you may be able to file for a third-party personal injury claim in addition to workers’ compensation. Third-party claims are brought against the company or person that was fully or partially at-fault for your accident. (In contrast, workers’ compensation benefits are available regardless of fault.) For example, another contractor, the construction manager or owner may be at fault for the condition or practices that caused your injuries.
Our firm will dig into the facts behind your case, carefully looking for every opportunity to file for workers’ compensation and a third-party claim. Securing both types of benefits can significantly increase your compensation and long-term financial security. You are our top priority, and you deserve an ally who can maximize your benefits.
