Greensboro Construction Site Accident Attorney
After an accident on a construction site, workers need to understand their legal rights.

This could mean not only making a workers’ compensation claim, but also filing a lawsuit against a non-employer who had a role in causing the injuries.
Auger & Auger construction accident lawyers in Greensboro have more than five decades of collective experience representing clients in construction site accident cases. We know that an accident can change your life and will work hard to protect you from financial loss and get you the compensation you deserve.
Your Rights After a Greensboro Construction Site Accident
After an accident on a construction site, a workers’ compensation claim will provide coverage for medical costs, as well as disability income. Workers’ comp benefits are available for all work-related injuries and illnesses, even if the employer did not do anything wrong that contributed to the injury. However, workers’ comp does not pay for pain and suffering or lost companionship; furthermore, the disability benefits only partially cover lost wages and only for a limited time.
A personal injury claim can provide much more compensation for a worker- but you cannot sue your employer after most construction site accidents. Instead, you can make a claim against any third party who was responsible for the accident. There are many construction site incidents that are caused by someone other than an employer, including accidents due to:
- Defective tools and machinery
- Scaffolding that has been poorly constructed
- Accidents with motor vehicles
- Negligence of architects, engineers, or non-employer contractors
A Greensboro construction site accident attorney will help you to determine if there is anyone you can pursue your injury claim against.
