Following an accident or injury at work, many people assume their only way to get financial recovery and medical coverage is through workers’ compensation. While that certainly is an important process, in some cases, you may also be able to pursue a separate personal injury claim for work-related injuries against parties other than your employer – such as negligent contractors and subcontractors.

What Kind Of Compensation Can You Get?

Unlike workers’ compensation, in which your recovery will be limited to certain categories of benefits, a personal injury claim can offer greater opportunities for financial recovery. For example, you can potentially obtain monetary damages for:

  • Your pain and suffering
  • Out-of-pocket medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Your lost wages
  • Funeral expenses and loss of companionship, if you lost a loved one due to work-related injuries

In certain circumstances, significant punitive damages may also be available.

Who Can You Sue?

Many work-related accidents occur on construction job sites throughout Kentucky. The accident may have been the result of negligence on the part of another contractor or subcontractor. Each worker at a construction site has a specific role to play, and each must perform his or her duties with high levels of care and responsibility.

While you may not be able to sue your employer directly, you may have a claim against the subcontractor or contractor whose negligence contributed to your accident, including:

  • Bricklayers
  • Pipe fitters
  • Electricians
  • HVAC mechanics
  • Framers
  • Roofers

To determine whether you have a claim, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney.
