There is not much additional information available about this accident.  However, construction accidents can be very complex and involve multiple parties who may be liable for a worker’s injuries.  For instance, we are currently working on a case where a worker was very seriously injured due to the negligence of a different contractor at the work site.  In a case such as that, the injured worker may be entitled to workers compensation benefits in addition to maintaining a claim against the negligent contractor.
