Construction Worker Injured in Courthouse Project

A construction worker was seriously injured on June 15 in an accident at a new courthouse project on Federal Street in Salem, MA. According to this article on Boston.com, the worker, who is in his early thirties, received serious injuries to both of his legs after he was hit by a concrete slab. The article said that the slab was about five inches thick.

The worker was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The victim here would be well advised to contact a skilled work injury lawyer who can carefully examine the incident to identify any negligence or wrongdoing. An experienced attorney would also look into a “third party claim.” These are claims that are filed against parties that are not the worker’s employer. It could be a contractor, a sub-contractor, or even the manufacturer of a defective product. If it is determined that one of those parties was responsible for the accident and any injuries, then they could be held liable.

Any worker who has sustained an injury arising out of and in the course of their employment has a potential workers’ compensation claim. The injury can occur while traveling on business, doing a work-related errand, attending a required business-related social function, or even while on a break or using restroom facilities and you are still legally covered by workers compensation.
