Why You Need a Lawyer
Construction companies are some of the largest in America, and they have a significant amount of money to hire legal representation or retain their own legal team. If you have been injured in an accident on a construction site, you need an experienced legal team on your side that knows how to secure the compensation you need. You don’t have to do this alone, and we can help. An experienced law firm has the resources you need to take your claim to court and fight on your behalf, so you can focus on recovering and moving on with your life.

The physical demands of construction jobs are tough, and they represent a threat to your health and safety. However, workers are not the only ones that are threatened by the dangers of construction zones. Construction companies know this, the employees know this, and the court of law knows this. Ravid & Associates, P.C. has considerable experience representing these types of cases, and we are prepared to bring claims for the following incidents that resulted in an injury or fatality:
- Equipment Malfunction
- Owner Negligence
- Slip and Fall
- Exposure to Toxic Substances
- Head and Brain Injuries
- Wrongful Death
This list only represents some of the ways in which construction companies can fail to uphold their responsibility to protect individuals from serious injury. Construction sites represent unique dangers in specific areas, and it is important that the companies take every precaution to prevent accidents from happening.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to work for the construction company to file a lawsuit?
If you were injured as a bystander on or next to a construction site, you have the right to seek compensation from the liable party. Construction zones are notoriously dangerous and represent a threat to both workers and non-workers in the area. The companies responsible for the work are expected to provide safety to everyone, and their failure to do so may entitle you to a financial award. You should speak with a lawyer to learn more about your options.
Can I sue my employer if I am covered by Michigan workers’ compensation?
Michigan workers compensation law prevents employees from seeking civil damages, such as pain and suffering, while collecting benefits through their employer. That’s because the law is a compromise between the employee and the employer, and it limits you from suing the company, even if they are 100% at fault. Instead, you may have the option to seek a third-party claim against a subcontractor or supplier if they were responsible for your injuries. However, the law is narrow, and it is best to consult with a legal professional to learn all of your options.
Is there a time limit for my claim?
Yes, time is limited. If the court receives your claim just one day late, it may prevent you from seeking rightful compensation. As soon as you can, contact a law firm to review your case and get the help that you need. You can reach Ravid & Associates, P.C. at any time through our website, or call us at (248) 948-9696. We will then be able to schedule an appointment to review the details of your unfortunate circumstances and provide you with information on how we can help.
Construction Fatality Statistics
The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration reported 38 deaths in 2017 from work-related accidents, and 2016 proved even more deadly. The nature of construction sites and work zones is dangerous, and many unforeseeable hazards pose a significant threat to individuals in the area. Roughly 5,400 Michigan workers missed work in 2015 due to occupational injuries in the construction industry alone, and each year thousands more are injured. Construction workers are familiar with the perils of their work environment, and yet many are injured. They are protected by workers compensation in the event that they are hurt on the job, but innocent bystanders that are unfamiliar with the specific dangers of a construction site are offered no financial protection.
If you were unaware of the threats to your safety during construction in your area and sustained injuries because of this, you may need to file a legal claim to recover what you lost. Hiring a law firm that is familiar with these types of cases can help you secure what is owed to you, and it is critical that you find an experienced lawyer to file your claim. You can only file your lawsuit once, and a knowledgeable lawyer will be able to maximize your chances of success.
