Sometimes things are not as they appear to be. This can be especially true at a construction site. Sometimes it requires a lawyer to sift through all of the papers to figure out that the party at fault was not really your employer. You may still have rights to hold them responsible.
Case law in your state will help determine if you can sue various parties. Was your employer under contract with the owner of the property? Was the construction site occupied by the General Contractor or Construction Manager? Who is the sub-contract with? Your employer? Are you working for you employer or for someone else? Who decides what your job entails? These are all critical questions that may help determine who is responsible. It is important to understand all of the contractual promises that were made to and by the GC and Construction Manager. Did they keep their promises to you? Did the contractor take all reasonable safety precautions? Did they take steps to prevent damage to you?
In addition, are you in a Local Union? Are there materials that the Local Union could supply that will help clear up these issues? Perhaps a meeting with Union officials will help. Do you want a Philadelphia injured at work attorney there with you? Contact our lawyers and see how we can help you sort through these issues.
