How plumbers and other contractors are injured on the job
On some occasions, the homeowner may have been negligent and contributed to your injuries. Every case is very different. If you have been injured speak to an attorney today. There are several ways plumbers and other contractors are hurt on the job; these are just a few ways:
- The homeowner forgot or neglected to tell you about mold, termites, or rotten wood which contributed to an injury.
- Rickety stairs, loose railings, slippery floors.
- A vicious dog or other animal bite
- Personal tools. If a homeowner lent you a malfunctioning saw, ladder, or other tool.
If you are an employee who was injured
Your employer should have in place workers’ compensation, disability insurance, and general liability insurance coverage.
If you are injured on a plumbing job, you can pursue a claim against the third party that caused your injuries.
If there is no workers’ compensation insurance carried by your employer in violation of state law, and the employer was responsible for your injury, then you can sue the employer civilly.
Pluming accidents are complex
As with any case, there are a lot of variables. Who was injured? How were they injured? Did they contribute to the injury? Of course, many people do not want to sue customers and employers, but if you have sustained a serious injury, getting the maximum amount of compensation available to you from insurance companies may require the assistance of a personal injury lawyer.
