Mississippi Construction Accident Attorney and Lawyer

Construction is the most dangerous industry and accounts for a significant percentage of all workplace fatalities. If you or someone you know has been injured at a construction site it is important to understand that compensation may be gained from more than one source. Generally, workers’ compensation will be the remedy that the worker will have against his employer. At the Law Offices of Attorney John R. Reeves, P.C., we routinely handle workers’ compensation claims for injured workers. However, many laypersons and even some attorneys overlook the fact that a third party can also be held liable for the workplace injury. For example if defective machinery is involved then there may be a cause of action against the manufacturer or the seller of the machinery. Another cause of action that is overlooked by most laypersons and many attorneys is the injury suffered by the spouse of the injured worker. These kinds of injuries are generally known as “loss of consortium.” If a third party is liable for the worker’s injury, then the spouse of the worker may have a claim for loss of consortium, as well. At the Law Offices of Attorney John R. Reeves, P.C., we can help you answer these and many other questions concerning a construction accident or construction negligence:

  • Is workers’ compensation your only course of action in a construction accident or construction negligence case?
  • Can you proceed against your employer in a construction accident or construction negligence case even though you are covered by workers’ compensation?
  • What benefits will you receive under workers’ compensation in a construction accident or construction negligence case?
