How to File a Construction Accident LawsuitConstruction accident victims may be eligible for worker’s compensation benefits if injured on the job. If you choose to pursue worker's compensation, you cannot also pursue a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim may allow you to receive more compensation than a worker's compensation claim, but it also puts the burden of proof on you, the claimant. To file a personal injury lawsuit, you must:
- Seek medical attention and be found to have a permanent injury.
- Consult with a personal injury lawyer.
- Gather evidence.
- Send a letter to the insurance company that demands payment for your injuries.
- Attempt to negotiate a settlement agreement.
- If no settlement agreement can be reached, you can continue to pursue the claim by filing a lawsuit with the appropriate civil court.

They were able to direct me with medical care questions, and advocate on my behalf with insurance companies.
Alex and his team were my rock after I was hit by a car while riding my bike. They were able to direct me with medical care questions, advocate on my behalf with insurance companies, and really listen on days where I had pain and was completely frustrated with my insurance company and their lack of response. Highly recommend!!!!
