Legal assistance for injured workers and passersby in Oklahoma
Construction sites are inherently dangerous places. Onsite workers and passersby are vulnerable to serious injury when accidents occur. The attorneys at Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons have extensive experience litigating construction accidents throughout Oklahoma to help injured parties obtain full compensation. If you have been injured as a result of a mishap at a construction site, we can evaluate the circumstances to determine if you have a case.
Several options are available after an injury on a construction site:
- Workers’ compensation claims for construction workers suffering job-related injuries
- Third-party lawsuits for construction workers harmed by the negligence of someone other than an employer or co-worker
- Civil court actions for non-employees injured when a construction accident causes harm in an area adjacent to the site
Our firm can help you file a claim with the appropriate insurance carrier or a lawsuit in civil court against all responsible parties.
Knowledgeable, experienced and resourceful
Our personal injury lawyers vigorously pursue the maximum allowable compensation for your loss under the law. Injured workers are often limited to claiming benefits under workers’ compensation, which is a no-fault system. But there are times when third-party negligence comes into play. For example, if a subcontractor was negligent and caused a scaffold collapse that injured you, you could file a personal injury lawsuit against that subcontractor, because an employer-employee relationship does not exist. A manufacturer of defective power tools or a supplier of defective materials that cause injury can also be strictly liable under products liability.
With a third-party lawsuit, you may recover the full amount of your lost wages and compensation for your pain and suffering. Neither of these awards is available under workers’ comp. Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons uses our knowledge, experience and resources to pursue every possible avenue to enhance your recovery.
Decisive help for non-employee victims of construction accidents throughout Oklahoma
Because construction sites are inherently dangerous, and the hazards are fairly obvious, contractors have limited recourse with premises liability claims. It is generally accepted that workers and non-workers who enter the site assume the risks. However, when an accident breaks the containment of the site, the construction companies are liable for injuries and property damage. Common examples include:
- Crane collapses
- Falling objects
- Fence collapses
- Scaffold collapses
If you were injured by a falling object from a construction site, our attorneys can help you obtain compensation at no upfront cost to you.
