The construction industry employs about 8 percent of U.S. workers but has 22 percent of the fatalities—the largest number for any of the industry sectors. Each year thousands of American men and women are seriously injured in construction accidents. The injuries suffered by these hardworking people, such as paralysis or loss of limbs, cause workers to incur numerous hospital bills, doctors’ visits, surgeries and bills for medication. Many accidents are life-altering, leaving a victim unable to work or provide for loved ones. In a worst-case scenario there may also be a wrongful death.
Often there are multiple defendants (the property owner, the general contractor, various sub-contractors, the developer, investors, lessors/lessees of the property, and the designers, including the engineers, architects and manufacturers), multiple insurance companies and multiple defense attorneys involved. Sometimes the owner, developer and general contractor are large and wealthy companies with sophisticated legal teams and insurance companies dedicated to avoiding liability. That is why it’s important to have an experienced construction accident lawyer on your side who can act quickly to make sure that your accident claim is reported correctly and that important evidence is preserved. If the accident is not reported appropriately, the accident site or equipment involved may not be properly preserved for investigation. If the important evidence is not preserved, you may be prevented from proving your construction accident claim.
It is also important to identify and locate all the parties that may be liable either through Workers’ Compensation or other insurance. Whether you have been hurt on the job by defective equipment or suffered a severe construction accident injury caused by negligence, you need to seek the assistance of a Certified Civil Trial Attorney who has experience with personal injury or wrongful death resulting from construction accidents. Proper and thorough investigation can make the difference in a successful claim. Timely investigation of the accident is the key to identifying and prosecuting construction site accidents. The investigation may include interviewing witnesses, obtaining photographs of the accident location before there are any changes, obtaining copies of the work site plans and of the contracts between the general contractor and the subcontractors, obtaining copies of any safety manuals used by the general contractor and the subcontractors and working with construction site experts to establish who was at fault for the accident. Since early investigation and legal intervention are important, you should obtain legal assistance immediately. At The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C., we will provide you with the timely and expert advice necessary to determine the feasibility of a construction accident claim.
