Honolulu & Hawaii Construction Accidents Lawyer
After a serious workplace accident, there is sometimes some confusion regarding workers' compensation and personal injury liability. Besides getting prompt medical attention for an injured worker, it is critical that victims and their families also contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
There will most likely be workers' compensation benefits available after a construction accident or a work place accident affecting an employee in an office or retail establishment.
Beyond the workers' compensation issues, however, is the question of whether any other entity besides the employer shares responsibility for the injury. Manufacturers, distributors, or installers of defective equipment are potential sources of compensation. Subcontractors or delivery services may be liable for injuries or loss of life resulting from a construction accident or any other workplace injury.
