Not all employers have the required safety programs in place or follow
strict OSHA standards. Some construction accidents resulting in injuries
can be caused by a fall from a ladder, faulty scaffolds, an explosion,
a distraction while using a power tool, a fall into an open trench, electrocution,
crane toppling, collapsing of dirt walls, or being struck by a falling
object. If a construction accident injury is due to negligence you may
have the right to sue for medical treatment, loss of wages, and other
damages. You may spend time in rehabilitation or possibly be unable to
continue as a construction worker because of your injury. Workers' compensation
does not always cover all costs incurred from treatment or for wages lost
because of missed work.
An experienced construction accident attorney can help you deal with liability and Worker's Compensation insurance companies. In many cases, there is a third party that is named in the lawsuit due to equipment failure that contributed to the dangerous accident. A lawyer from the legal team can advise you on the right direction to take in order to help you pursue maximum compensation. A competent personal injury attorney from the firm is knowledgeable and is aware of what accident reports and witness statements are needed in order to establish who was at fault in the construction accident injury. You need to contact at attorney without delay before the evidence becomes more difficult to obtain.
