Work Related & Construction Injuries

When an individual is injured at work or while working at a construction site, that person may think that the only legal action he or she can bring against the employer or co-workers is a claim for workers’ compensation. Third party personal injury cases can be brought in addition to the workers’ compensation case. Brinkley and Chesnut represents clients in claims for work related injuries against third parties, such as the manufacturer of unsafe equipment, the owner of the premises where the injury occurred (if different from the employer), or against another company whose employee caused the injury. The firm has extensive expertise in this field setting the record for the largest verdict ever rendered in Madison County in such a case. See Stewart v. ATEC which was the subject of three appeals at 628 So.2d 270 (Ala. Civ. App. 1994) and 652 So.2d 270 (Ala. Civ. App. 1995)
