CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT Lawyers in CLINTON
File a Personal Injury Claim for Compensation in East Tennessee
If you or a loved one has been harmed in an accident on a construction site, you are often entitled to benefits from workers' compensation regardless of who was at fault for your injury. However, workers' compensation pays you nothing for damages such as pain and suffering. In certain circumstances, you can also be entitled to additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
At Cantrell, Goodge & Associates, our work injury and construction accident lawyers in Clinton are dedicated to helping injured workers obtain the medical care they need and the full compensation they deserve. If you were injured due to the negligence of someone else, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim in addition to a claim for workers' compensation benefits. We serve clients in Clinton, Oak Ridge, Knoxville and throughout East Tennessee.

Personal Injury Claims & Construction Accidents
You cannot file personal injury lawsuits against your employer (or anyone who works for your employer) for a work injury except in extreme cases of gross negligence. You may file suits against a third party or parties who have injured you. Anyone who does not work for your employer is considered a third party. Examples include:
- Other drivers in motor vehicle accidents
- Other contractors who were working on the same construction site
- The owner of the premises
- Operators of heavy equipment such as cranes and excavators
- Manufacturers of dangerous or defective equipment
A serious construction accident can result in permanent damage to your body and even put an end to your career. To protect your rights and best interests, contact an experienced personal injury and workers' compensation lawyer in Clinton as soon after the accident.
