Work in the construction industry is rife with potential accidents, some of which result in serious injury or even death. Falling, being struck by an object, and getting entangled in equipment are just a few of the more serious causes of injury, among dozens of others.
Injuries on a construction site can easily occur because a project zone tends to be a very fluid space. There’s a lot going on at one time, and a large number of employees and contractors are coming and going. When an accident occurs, it can be easy for the multiple parties in the project to point fingers at one another, and occasionally even at the injured worker.
Sometimes that worker can get lost in the midst of this blame game. An insurance company might start issuing workmen’s compensation payments, only to stop them because they expect a large lump sum settlement is on the horizon. An employer may attempt to cover up a violation of OSHA standards that jeopardized their workers.
I’m here to let you know that these bad-faith practices should not prevent you from collecting the money you deserve—especially if you have been seriously injured. I treat every one of my clients like family, going above and beyond to defend their best interests. I do not charge fees unless I win your case. A win for me is only a win when you win as well.
Safety should be the number one priority on a construction site. Not coming in under budget. Not coming in ahead of schedule. Though those concerns are important from a business perspective, human life comes first.
Though the company you’ve worked for or with may not operate by those principles, I hold them very dear and do everything I can to obtain the settlement my clients deserve.
