Workers injured on a construction site often have legal recourse beyond filing a workers’ compensation claim. At Gash & Associates, P.C., we are often contacted by workers’ compensation attorneys and requested to explore alternate avenues of liability. We handle serious industrial accidents resulting from unsafe job sites or equipment & industrial negligence, including crane, bobcat, fork lift, 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.
We specialize in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. We represent workers and family members of workers who suffer serious fractures, loss of limbs, disabling neck and back injuries, disabling head and brain injuries, and death. We seek damages from construction site property owners, general contractors and subcontractors, and manufacturers of industrial equipment and parts.
If you have suffered a severe injury at your place of employment, you may already be filing a claim through the workers’ compensation insurance system. A successful claim can assist you and your family with paying for medical bills as well as covering some portion of the wages lost due to an accident. However, if the amount of compensation you are receiving from such a claim is insufficient to stabilize your financial situation, you should know that you may be entitled to receive further damages by filing a third party personal injury lawsuit against other persons or entities who are responsible for your injury. Schedule a consultation with us so that we can hear the details of your case. We can help.
We prepare every case for trial. We consult distinguished experts in the field, assemble documentation and evidence, and conduct a thorough investigation, including the interview of all witnesses to the accident. Committed to focused work on a small number of cases each year, we devote the time and resources necessary to bring the best results possible for each client.
