Are CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT Lawsuits Complex?

Yes, so you will need experienced representation to best handle your claim.  These cases usually require the injured worker to bring claims against contractors, subcontractors, developers, owners, material suppliers, architects, engineers, and insurance companies.  And, not surprisingly, each of those parties usually try to avoid responsibility for their wrongful conduct and pass it on to others.  These lawsuits also frequently require expert witnesses – both medical and construction industry experts – to show the cause of the accident and the nature and extent of the employee’s injuries.  Without experienced and aggressive representation, an injured worker may suffer for years without any compensation before their lawsuit is decided.

What About Workers’ Compensation?

By law, all construction companies are required to carry workers’ insurance for their employees working on the job.  Workers’ compensation covers medical care and lost wages, but the payments are very limited and do not assign fault.  Our firm seeks damages beyond those provided in workers’ compensation, as the law allows, to ensure that your current and future medical and non-medical needs are fully met.

Safe Work Environment?

Your employer is legally required to provide a safe work environment take all reasonable measures to ensure that standard is met.  We seek compensation for construction workers hurt on the job due when employers deviate from that standard, such as negligent or reckless actions or orders, unqualified equipment managers, OSHA violations, as well as other forms of employer liability.  We will interview witnesses, procure files and plans, study the site of the accident, and determine the best course of action to obtain compensation for your injuries.  Some of our past clients include steel workers, carpenters, electricians, roofers, sheet metal workers, structural workers, and tradesman.
