Many workers in Ohio are covered by workers’ compensation insurance, which ensures they’ll continue to receive partial payment and medical care while they recover from their injuries. Unfortunately, workers compensation does not provide payment for all of your losses and some construction workers aren’t even covered by workers’ compensation. But that doesn’t mean they’re without legal options.
When you’re injured on a construction site in Ohio, your case could have many paths to compensation. For example, if your injury occurred because your employer removed a safety device on equipment or if a third party was responsible for your injuries, you can recover damages in addition to your workers compensation benefits.
When you’re injured because of an unsafe premises or faulty equipment, a third-party liability claim can be your best chance of getting payment to cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and all other damages you face.
The Ohio construction accident lawyers at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy will review your case to determine whether your best option is to pursue compensation through workers’ compensation and, if possible, through a third-party liability claim.

Our construction accident attorneys have a proven record of getting results for injured construction workers and their families. Attorney David M. Paris represented a mason who suffered a serious spinal cord injury on a construction site that left him paralyzed from the chest down. Unsafe worksite conditions led to the worker’s 25-foot fall, and our client recovered more than $4,000,000 in compensation.
Another of our clients suffered a burst fracture of his L1 vertebra after falling from a roof due to lack of fall protection. The injury left him with severe bowel and bladder dysfunction, and a lifelong inability to walk without the assistance of a walker or confinement to a wheelchair. Attorney Jonathan D. Mester was able to show a jury that the contractor had failed to protect him, and our client was awarded $3,300,000.
These are just two examples of the many construction-related cases we’ve handled. Our attorneys know construction practices and we invest our resources to make sure our clients get the payment they’re entitled to.

Though construction workers can be injured in many ways, certain types of accidents are most likely to cause them serious injury or death. The leading causes of construction worker injury and death are falls. Falls can occur on scaffolding or roofs, and the injuries they cause are typically life-threatening or result in permanent disability.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration has dubbed the most common causes of construction worker injury the “Fatal Four.” They include:
Together, these four causes of injuries result in more than half of all construction worker injuries and the lawyers at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy have successfully handled them all.
Construction workers face difficult and dangerous work environments. Every year, more than one-fifth of all worker deaths in the U.S. are in construction. In fact, an average of two construction workers die every day in the U.S.
Construction workers are often classified as independent contractors, which means they receive fewer benefits and worker protections afforded to workers classified as employees. These workers are often failed by those who hire them, and they frequently don’t get the safety equipment or training required for their jobs.
Clearly, the construction industry has failed to do its part to protect workers. We believe that all workers deserve to be given payment for all the damages they’ve suffered when injured on the job. That’s why we’re committed to helping injured construction workers in Cleveland get the help they need to move forward.
