How a San Diego Scaffolding Accident Lawyer Can HelpAfter a serious personal injury accident related to scaffolding, victims are saddled with a lot of logistics. They have to figure out how to pay for medical care, deal with lost wages, pursue claims, and more – all while recovering from their physical and psychological injuries. A scaffolding accident lawyer can help by overseeing the legal aspects of the accident so you can focus on recovery. The many benefits of working with a scaffolding accident lawyer in San Diego include the following:
Bring the Right Claims Against the Right PartyScaffolding accident cases can be complex. The accident may be caused by different parties, including the scaffolding manufacturer, the property owner, one or more construction companies, one or more insurance companies, and individual workers and inspectors. The possible legal claims will depend on the facts of the case and who was at fault. Potential claims include product liability, premise liability, negligence, wrongful death, and workers’ compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney like the ones at Gomez Trial Attorneys will apply their legal expertise and professional judgment to determine the right claims to bring against the right parties. Getting this wrong can result in losing out on potential claims.
Negotiate Against Insurance CompaniesAs with all construction accident cases, scaffolding cases always involve insurance companies. It is typically the insurance companies who will be responsible for paying you, so they are notorious for fighting hard against claims. Fortunately, at Gomez Trial Attorneys, we are a reputable, well-known team experienced in negotiating against insurance companies. We have a reputation for succeeding in cases against insurers which means insurance companies are more likely to bring better offers when you work with us than if you represent yourself.
Assistance in Managing Medical TreatmentGetting medical treatment for serious physical and psychological injuries after a scaffolding accident can feel like a full-time job, and figuring out how to pay for it, well, can feel like a puzzle. Fortunately, a scaffold accident attorney may be able to help you find providers and negotiate medical liens so that you are not required to pay until your lawsuit concludes.
Gathering and Presenting ProofIt is not enough that someone else was at fault for the scaffolding accident, to recover, you must prove that the other person was at fault and the extent of the resulting injuries. Your scaffolding attorney will help gather the required proof and present it, along with legal arguments, in a manner that is persuasive during negotiations and, if needed, trial.
