At Kinnard Law, our team of Nashville construction accident attorneys has been representing injured construction workers in Tennessee since 1977.

We Handle All Types of Workplace Accident Claims
In an effort to meet tight deadlines and budgets, general contractors and subcontractors often cut corners when it comes to safety and security. This means that construction workers may be asked to use equipment that has not been properly inspected or work on jobsites that are unsafe or unstable.
This can result in a number of different accidents, including:
- Falls from ladders
- Scaffolding collapses
- Chemical burns
- Falling objects
- Defective equipment
If you or a family member was injured by dangerous conditions on a construction site, you may be entitled to compensation. Depending on the facts of your case, our firm may be able to help you seek damages not only through a workers’ compensation claim, but also through a third party lawsuit.
Third Party Injury Claims in Nashville, TN
The workers' compensation program provides a great safety net for injured workers in Tennessee and protection for employers from crippling lawsuits. The problem, though, is that workers' compensation rarely covers the full extent of medical bills and lost wages—especially in cases involving long-term injuries. This leaves many injured workers unable to support themselves and their families.
Although workers' compensation rules prohibit lawsuits against employers for on-the-job injuries, injured workers can often increase their compensation through third party lawsuits. At Kinnard Law, we can help you seek full and appropriate compensation if you have been injured at work.
Examples of Common Third Party Claims
A third party liability lawsuit is a personal injury suit aimed at recovering compensation for on-the-job injuries, brought against anyone other than the victim's employer or co-workers.
Examples of third party liability claims include:
- Chemical burns caused by faulty storage equipment manufactured by another company
- Scaffold injuries caused by a faulty scaffold manufactured by another company
- Construction accidents caused by faulty equipment manufactured by other companies
