How De Castroverde Accident & Injury Lawyers Can Help if You’ve Been Injured in a Las Vegas Construction Accident 

How De Castroverde Accident & Injury Lawyers Can Help if You’ve Been Injured in a Las Vegas Construction Accident 

Construction accident claims can be complicated. Workers’ compensation should be straightforward, but employers and insurance companies can make it difficult for workers to receive their benefits. Third-party claims require you to prove negligence and fault before receiving compensation for damages. 

That is why you should call De Castroverde Accident & Injury Lawyers if you have been injured in a construction accident. Our top-rated Las Vegas personal injury lawyers are nationally recognized for their legal services and client satisfaction. 

We have a perfect 10.0 rating with Avvo and received Avvo’s Clients’ Choice Award. Our lawyers have an AV Preeminent rating with Martdale-Hubbell, its highest peer rating for attorneys. They also received Martindale-Hubbell’s Platinum Client Champion Award.

When you hire our award-winning lawyers to represent you in a construction accident case, you can trust we will:

  • Investigate your construction accident to locate the cause of your injury

  • Consult with experts regarding your case, including medical specialists, construction professionals, and other experts 
  • Prepare and file insurance claims and workers’ comp claims
  • Negotiate settlements with the workers’ compensation insurance company and other parties responsible for your injuries
  • File lawsuits and take your case to trial if we do not receive fair settlement offers

Leading Causes of Las Vegas Construction Accidents 

Construction accidents happen for many reasons. These sites are dangerous. Even with strict safety regulations and procedures, construction workers can be injured or killed.

Common factors that contribute to the cause of construction accidents include:

  • Falls
  • Defective equipment
  • Hazardous working conditions
  • Untrained and/or inexperienced workers
  • Being struck-by objects
  • Lack of adequate safety equipment
  • Tripping hazards
  • Electrocutions
  • Being caught in or between objects
  • Unsafe equipment
  • Missing equipment guards
  • Inadequate fall protection
  • Unsafe property conditions
  • Exposure to toxic substances

If you are injured on a construction site, report the injury to your employer and seek immediate medical care. Then, contact our Las Vegas construction accident attorneys as soon as possible to discuss legal options for filing claims.

What Compensation Can I Receive for a Las Vegas Construction Accident?

Most construction workers are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Therefore, you’ll want to file a claim for workers’ comp benefits. 

However, you could also have a claim under Nevada’s personal injury laws. If so, you can file a third-party claim in addition to your workers’ comp claim. This can greatly increase the amount of compensation you recover for your injuries.

Workers’ Comp Benefits for a Las Vegas Construction Accident 

Workers’ compensation insurance is a no-fault system. You do not need to prove that your employer was negligent in causing your injury. All you need to prove is that you were injured during the ordinary course of employment. 

Workers’ compensation benefits include:

  • Payment for necessary and reasonable medical treatment
  • Disability benefits for lost wages
  • Vocational training if you cannot return to your construction job

The problem with workers’ compensation is that the benefits are limited. 

For example, you are not reimbursed for all lost income. You only receive a portion of your lost wages, usually about two-thirds of your average monthly wages. The wage benefits have caps for maximum benefits. 

Also, workers’ comp does not compensate you for pain and suffering damages. Permanent disability awards are also limited.

Filing a Third-Party Personal Injury Claim for a Construction Accident in Las Vegas 

Generally, workers’ comp does not permit you to file a lawsuit against your employer unless your employer intentionally caused your injury. However, it does not prohibit you from filing third-party claims.

Examples of third parties that could be liable for your construction accident include:

  • Motorists
  • Property owners
  • Subcontractors
  • Architects and engineers
  • General contractors
  • Product manufacturers

Your damages are not as limited for a personal injury lawsuit. Typically, injured parties can receive compensation for non-economic and economic damages, including:

  • Past and ongoing medical expenses
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and quality of life
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Past and ongoing lost wages
  • Emotional distress and mental anguish
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Impairments and disability
  • Physical pain 
  • Out-of-pocket expenses

However, with a third-party claim, you must prove that the other party was negligent in causing your injury. Also, comparative negligence applies. 

If you are partially to blame for causing your injury, your compensation is reduced by your level of fault. You are barred from receiving any money for your claim if you are 51% or more at fault for your construction injuries. 

Proving negligence is not required in workers’ comp claims. Also, comparative negligence does not apply in workers’ comp claims. You can be partially to blame for causing your injury and still receive the full amount of your workers’ comp benefits, provided you did not intentionally cause your injuries. 

Construction Workers Sustain a Variety of Injuries

Construction injuries range from minor to life-threatening. However, even a minor injury could quickly worsen into a traumatic one. Therefore, you want to seek prompt medical treatment for your health and to document injuries for your claim.

Our Las Vegas construction accident lawyers can help you with cases involving all types of injuries. Common construction injuries include:

  • Back and neck injuries
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Amputations and loss of limbs
  • Paralysis and spinal cord injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Internal organ damage
  • Occupational disease
  • Crushing injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Electrocution 
  • Repetitive motion injury
  • Exposure to toxic substances

If your loved one dies because of their construction injuries, we can help you file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for your losses. While a monetary award does not bring back your loved one, it can help with family expenses and provide a measure of justice for your family. 

Our Experienced Las Vegas Accident Lawyers Handle All Types of Construction Accident Cases 

Many different accidents occur on construction sites. Our lawyers at De Castroverde Accident & Injury Lawyers handle all types of construction accident cases, including but not limited to:

  • Ladder accidents
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Hoist accidents
  • Trenching accidents

  • Accidents involving defective products
  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Excavator accidents
  • Falling debris accidents
  • Forklift accidents
  • Elevator shaft accidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Electrocution and electrical accidents
  • Demolition accidents

If you were hurt on a construction site, it is essential for you to understand your legal rights. The insurance company, your employer, and other parties are not interested in protecting your rights. Our attorneys will protect your interests every step of the way after a construction accident.

What Are the Deadlines for Filing Construction Accident Claims in Nevada?

The deadlines to file claims after a construction accident depend on the type of claim. Generally, workers need to report accidents to their employers within one week. They have 90 days to file a formal workers’ comp claim for benefits.

However, if you file a personal injury case, the Nevada statute of limitations sets a two-year deadline. There could be exceptions that change the deadline.

Seeking legal advice as soon as possible after a construction accident is best. If you miss the filing deadline for a construction accident claim, your claim or lawsuit could be dismissed.
