For someone who has been injured while working on the job, there is nothing more frustrating than realizing that the injury may prevent them from future work, limiting their income, and possibly resulting in permanent physical and emotional injuries. Worse yet, what one would consider a straight forward matter can take years to resolve and end in high debt or even bankruptcy.
Construction injury claims can be just as complicated and multi-faceted as a hospital negligence claim. Multiple personnel at a construction site, faulty or poorly maintained equipment, OSHA violations, rented equipment and tools, all increase the risk to a construction worker and complicate the claim for those injured.
In addition, an injured worker has to determine how to move forward and who is ultimately liable. Retaining an experienced personal injury attorney who understands the intricacies of construction accident law is critical to the success of your claim. Assessing local and federal regulations on worker safety, carefully and meticulously evaluating maintenance records, and fully understanding the technical nature of the work involved is just the first step to successfully pursuing a claim.
