Construction is one of the most dangerous industries in the U.S. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), about 20% of all workplace fatalities occur in the construction industry each year.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports show that private industry employers in Washington reported about 89,600 non-fatal workplace injuries in 2022. About 8,800 of those injury cases were construction-related.
The value of your claim will depend on several different factors, including:
Under state workers’ compensation laws, your wage replacement benefits will equal between 60% and 75% of your average weekly wages prior to the disability. The amount of your check will depend on how many dependents you have. Your benefits check is also subject to a statewide maximum.
Nearly all injured employees in Washington must be covered under workers’ compensation. Employers can purchase insurance from the Washington State Fund or they can choose to self-insure. In either case, you’re entitled to benefits if you were injured in a work-related accident.
Workers’ compensation provides the following types of benefits:
Following the workers’ compensation rules is critical to recovering these types of benefits.
For example, you can see any available doctor for your first visit. However, for follow-up visits, you must see a doctor who has been approved by the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries. Otherwise, your medical claims could be denied.
Possibly. You cannot sue your employer or a co-worker for a work-related injury unless a limited exception applies.
However, negligent third parties aren’t protected from lawsuits. So, if someone other than your employer or co-worker caused your accident, you can sue for damages.
For example, you may have a valid third-party claim against:
Our lawyers will carefully investigate the circumstances of your accident and injury to determine whether you’re entitled to sue for additional damages.
Our Seattle construction accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. That means your attorney’s fees are based on the amount of compensation we recover for you. We can discuss our fee structure in your free case evaluation.
The bottom line: you don’t pay attorney’s fees unless we recover compensation in your case.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. You can file a claim for benefits even if you were responsible for your injuries.
In personal injury cases, Washington follows a pure comparative negligence law. Your compensation will be reduced in proportion to your share of fault.
You could be entitled to compensation for any type of construction accident injury, including:
If you were injured on the job in Seattle, don’t hesitate to call our personal injury law firm for legal assistance today. We’ll do everything we can to get the maximum compensation you deserve.

If you were injured, our lawyers will dig deep to determine the cause. Identifying the at-fault parties can make a significant difference in your final compensation award.
At Davis Law Group, P.S., we handle all types of construction injury cases, including those involving:
Remember, you may be entitled to workers’ comp even if your accident did not occur on the construction site. If your injuries were work-related, you have rights.
No. Construction accident victims can claim workers’ compensation without proof of negligence. If you were an employee and were injured in the course of employment, you’re entitled to benefits.
You will likely have to prove negligence to win a personal injury case. In the most basic terms, negligence means that someone was careless or reckless, and you were injured as a result.
It’s important to notify your employer as soon as possible after a construction accident. If you delay, you risk losing valuable workers’ comp benefits. You must file a formal claim for compensation with the L&I insurance board within one year of the accident.
If you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit, the statute of limitations gives you three years from the date of the accident to take legal action.
There are exceptions to these time limits, but they are rare. Get in touch with our law offices as soon as you can to protect your legal right to compensation.
