Construction Accident Lawyers
Most people injured on a construction site are working when they are hurt and are covered by workers’ compensation insurance, or they should be covered. A good construction injury lawyer should understand workers’ compensation law. But your Durham construction injury attorney should also understand personal injury law.
Many construction injuries happen because someone who did not work for your company was also on your job site, failed to follow OSHA regulations, or was careless. Or the injury could have happened because some equipment you or your family member used was improperly designed or made. If either happened to you, you may have two cases, not one. You could have a personal injury claim to compensate you more than a workers’ compensation case. But, it would help if you did not ignore the workers’ compensation case either; you need to make sure your Durham construction injury attorney is someone who understands both claims and can handle both.
We have years of experience as construction injury attorneys in Durham. We are ready to talk with you for free and explain your rights in personal injury and workers’ compensation claims. We can help you figure out which claim to pursue harder, depending on the facts of your case and the timing. It would help if you didn’t have to go to two different law firms that may not be talking to each other when you can get an update on how your cases are going in one call.
For example, our Durham construction accident attorney has worked on cases for people who have had these kinds of construction injuries and had personal injury claims AND workers’ compensation claims at the same time:
- A man who was killed when a roof collapsed on a construction site
- A laborer was seriously injured when a section of a wall under construction was improperly secured and fell on him
- A laborer was hit by a bobcat driven by an employee of a separate company at the same job site.
Our Durham construction accident attorney is here to help you and your family get answers to your questions about the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Call us today.
