Work Accident

When injured in a construction accident, it is important to hire an experienced construction accident attorney. They have the knowledge and experience to assist you in construction accident cases. Hiring a construction accident attorney can make the difference between resolving a case justly and losing money for your injuries from the accident.

How a construction accident attorney can help you

Assist you with workers compensation: If you were injured due to unsafe working conditions, a construction accident attorney can evaluate your eligibility for workers’ compensation benefits. He can assist you with workers compensation claims as you recover from the injury.

Assist you in making an insurance claim: A construction accident attorney can help you to recover losses resulting from your accident at work and reduce the hassle associated with your insurance, as well as legal claims. He or she can help you to get compensation to cover any losses incurred due to the accident, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and future medical needs. In addition, an attorney will help you and your family recover in cases of wrongful death.

Help in separate liability suits: Construction accidents can be complicated and may involve a lot of parties who were negligent on the work site. A separate liability suit is usually prepared by a personal injury law firm in order to compensate the victim and their family for the injury or even death of their loved one because of their negligence. A construction accident attorney can help you determine if there are any separate liability suits and make a claim accordingly.

Represent you in law suits: A construction accident attorney will help you to understand how to file a civil suit and under what legal theories to bring the action. Different theories of torts such as strict liability and negligence have to be pursued by the construction accident lawyer that is representing those who bring a lawsuit against the defendants that are responsible for the accident. The complexity of such construction liability cases requires an experienced attorney.

When to hire a construction accident attorney

You should hire a construction attorney shortly after the construction accident occurs. You will need to pay for medical bills and cover your losses shortly after the accident occurs, so it’s better to contact your attorney early.
