Know Your Legal Options After A Construction Site Accident
Construction sites are the most dangerous of all workplaces. The injustice of hardworking people injured at high rates and even killed is intolerable. The Law Offices of James F. White, P.C., is dedicated to vigorous advocacy for these workers.
Although workers’ compensation may be the only remedy for many workers hurt on the job, quite often there are other potentially responsible parties. In other words, if anyone other than your employer contributed to the injury in any way, they may be held financially responsible in addition to your workers’ comp claim. This could be the manufacturer of a defective machine, a subcontractor, or a property owner.
The most important thing for you right now is proper medical attention and care. See a doctor of your own choosing or ask us for a referral. Your injuries should not be trivialized so make sure they are fully documented.
How A Construction Accident Attorney Can Help You
Call our office immediately. Prompt location and preservation of evidence of the event are crucial to your case. Eyewitnesses, machines, photographs, whatever will help demonstrate what happened should be gathered. It may be more difficult as weeks and months pass.
If you have suffered a finger injury, hand injury, or arm injury, or suffered amputation in a saw, punch press, or other machine accident, you are dealing with pain and worry in addition to medical bills and perhaps lost work time. If you have suffered a serious injury, your ability to work may be permanently restricted. A very large settlement or jury award may be necessary to compensate you.
