Client Success Story
A Michigan man was working on a Union construction project in northern Minnesota, when a pulley came loose and hit him in the back of his head. Despite having a hard hat on, he was knocked unconscious and airlifted to a hospital. Fields Law Firm monitored the claim and had him work with a QRC during his recovery rather than the nurse case manager from the insurance company.
Fields Law Firm made sure all of his medical bills were paid, which were hundreds of thousands of dollars, and he was paid weekly compensation for over 2 years. As the insurance company geared up to discontinue his wage loss benefits under the statutory maximum on weeks payable, the construction accident attorneys at Fields Law Firm negotiated a settlement on the remaining benefits available, helping the injured Union electrician to maximize his financial position as a result of the injury and provide for his family.
What is subcontractor negligence?
Subcontractor negligence can occur when:
- Construction contracts are breached.
Innocent workers can get hurt when subcontractors fail to perform their jobs to the standards set by general contractors’ contracts.
- General contractors fail to select safe and proven subcontractors.
General contractors have a duty to select subcontractors with the experience, training, and knowledge to safely complete their jobs on work sites.
- Subcontractors fail to follow safety regulations and local laws.
Subcontractors are specialists hired to perform tasks, such as pipe fitting or roofing. When they fail to follow regulations that apply to their specific trades, they put others on the job site at risk.
