What our clients are saying

“My wife was hit head-on by an F-350 that did not yield at an intersection from which, we found later, that she suffered irreparable nerve damage in her leg. We consulted with and hired Chris Garrison and his team to represent my wife. They guided us and handled everything from start to finish. We reached a successful settlement with the insurance company, thanks to Chris.”

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Our Indianapolis construction site accident attorneys answer the most common questions we hear from our injured clients.

When can I sue my employer for negligence?

If you are covered by workers’ compensation then you cannot sue your employer for negligence. Your sole and exclusive remedy against your employer and a co-worker is that provided by your employer’s workers compensation provider as dictated by statute.

Can I still sue if I accept workers’ compensation benefits after an accident?

You may sue a responsible (liable) third party even though you get workers comp. If you are injured while on the job but by someone other than your employer or a co-worker, then you can make a claim against that third party.

What should I do if I’ve been involved in a construction accident?

Call Garrison Law Firm right away because valuable evidence may start disappearing right away. A failing machine part, a below spec rafter, and such may all be disposed of before properly inspected. Don’t let this happen to you.

What if I was a subcontractor at a construction site? Can I still file a claim?

Subcontractors can sue the responsible (liable) party, and under some circumstances, sue the general contractor.

What if I am partially at fault for a construction site accident?

Indiana’s rules of comparative fault apply to construction accidents. If you were 10% at fault then you can only recover 90% of your damages. If you were 50% at fault you can recover 50% of your damages. If you were more than 50% at fault then you cannot recover anything.

Who is responsible for preventing accidents on a construction site?

Everyone. Architects, engineers, general contractors, subcontractors, and potentially others are all at risk if they are at fault.
