Oftentimes, workers’ compensation isn’t enough. Construction workers injured on a job site may be able to explore additional avenues of compensation and we’re often contacted by workers’ compensation attorneys to help determine which of these avenues may be viable.
Usually, the first path after a severe construction or industrial accident is through filing a claim with the workers’ compensation insurance system. While a successful claim can assist with paying for medical costs and lost wages, what the system pays out is often not enough. One potential option for additional compensation is by filing a third-party personal injury lawsuit in an attempt to hold those entities who may have caused the injury responsible.
We handle serious industrial accidents resulting from unsafe job sites or equipment & industrial negligence, including crane, bobcat, forklift, and skid steer loader accidents; scaffolding collapses, trench collapses, structural failures, roof-related falls, and falling debris; electrocution; and boiler and propane fires and explosions.
Whether the case goes to trial or is negotiated out of court, we consult distinguished experts in the field, assemble documentation and evidence, and conduct a thorough investigation to determine potential routes to compensation and what those damages may look like. We only take on on a small number of cases each year, so we can devote the time and resources necessary to achieve the best results.
