If you were involved in a construction accident in Sacramento, Folsom, Stockton, Roseville, El Dorado County and across California, you will most likely have a workers’ compensation claim. One of the key questions after a construction accident is whether there is a THIRD PARTY CLAIM against any other potential defendants. This is important because we want to help you recover any and all damages for your injuries to the full extent possible. We will help investigate whether you have a third party claim in addition to any workers’ compensation claim you may have against your employer.
After a construction accident, we understand that you are worried about your injuries and medical care, how to get medical bills paid, and how to replace your lost income. If your husband, wife, father or mother was killed, your grief can overshadow all else. At the same time, you want and deserve to know how and why your family member died on the job at the construction site and you may have a Wrongful Death claim. We will use our best efforts to get you those answers.
