Our Law Firm Can Help
As an everyday construction worker, team, laborer or even foreman, you take all the necessary steps to ensure that you are abiding by the rules set in place to ensure your safety and allow for an organized and safe construction zone. You are well trained and understand the safety rules. In fact, you are also aware that your job may become in danger if you don’t abide by the safety rules already set in place.
Sometimes however, taking all the necessary safety steps is not enough, as unforeseeable accidents can lurk behind every corner. When this happens, it is important to seek professional legal guidance to ensure that you are covered 100% and compensated. The personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Matthew C. Hines will work with you, as we have decades of experience dealing with these type of construction site injuries.
Our team of professionals will begin an investigation on your behalf to:
- Seek out your state’s workers compensation structure
- Consummate a legal claim on your behalf
Although it is already understood that construction zone areas are precarious areas to be working in, it doesn’t disallow your senior supervisors from their negligence if they failed to meet the safety protocol rules set in place. You are still entitled to your right for lost wages, pain and suffering and permanent damage that may have occurred during the construction accident.
Origin of Construction Accidents. Be informed.
Even the safest construction workers encounter unforeseeable events that may lead to serious injuries, permanent injuries or even death in some cases. Our attorneys have successfully won settlements in construction accident cases that resulted in millions of dollars in the past 10 years. Some of the more common construction zone accidents include:
- Falling debris
- Crane accidents
- sinkhole accidents
- chemical spills or burns
- Unsafe inhalation of chemicals
- electrical shocks
- Building collapse
- Scaffolding accidents
- Much more
Some of these accidents are very prevalent in nature, others include long-term effects or injuries that develop over time. In any event, it is always recommended that you seek legal guidance. Our attorney firm offers free consultations.
Your Legal Choices
Your options for legal action involve several factors, including the severity of your injury as well as the laws of your state. Trying to take matters into your own hand will most likely lead to no compensation or settlement claims at all. Seek professional experts in the matter. In any event, your options usually consist of:
- In most cases, all work site injuries must abide by the state’s workers compensation system. For this matter, it is usually more difficult to pursue a personal injury claim.
- Some states, however do permit personal injury claims depending on the type of accident in more frequent situations.
