Indiana Construction Accident Lawyer
Kooi Can Help You File a Third-Party Claim
A large majority of the claims filed with the Indiana Workers’ Compensation Board pertain to injuries sustained on construction sites throughout the state. Our team at Kooi pays close attention to construction zone accidents and injuries, as well as the laws pertaining to these issues and we offer our legal services to the victims and families of such incidents.
If you were injured in a construction accident that could have been prevented, we urge to contact our firm immediately. During a free consultation with an Indiana personal injury attorney at our office, we can discuss the details of your accident and formulate a plan for moving forward with a claim or lawsuit for compensation.
The types of construction accident cases we handle include:
- Falls from elevated work areas / platforms / ladders
- Scaffolding collapses
- Structure failures
- Forklift accidents
- Crane accidents
- Equipment failure
- Vehicle accidents caused by a third party
Suing General Contractors, Architects, Manufacturers, or Property Owners
Workers’ compensation laws in Indiana do not allow employees to sue employers for injuries sustained on the job, such as those that occur in construction zones. Instead, many construction-related claims and lawsuits are directed against general contractors, manufacturers, architects, or property owners for their contribution to or involvement in the accident.
Third-party claims are brought against non-employers. At Kooi, we pursue these types of lawsuits because it allows the victims we represent to obtain compensation outside the confines of Indiana’s worker’s compensation laws, thus allowing us to help them seek compensation for various damages and pain and suffering, including emotional distress.
