construction injury is usually the worst type of injury, because they frequently happen with
employees in precarious places or with potentially dangerous equipment.
In some cases, it might lead to fatalities, but a fall or an accident
using heavy equipment frequently leads to serious lifelong injuries. And
when people seek claims, they have to contend with workers comp, which
is frequently complex on its own to gain a decent amount.
While workers comp exists so those injured won't sue a company for
injuries, the law allows outside claims for possibly more compensation.
It's something we can help you with here at Odegaard Braukmann Law,
because you deserve more compensation for your injuries when there was
real negligence involved.
Frequently, workers comp amounts are far too small when measured against
the medical bills of an injured worker. If you're one of those people
who were just injured in a construction accident, you probably received
your workers comp check and realized it won't even cover a quarter
of your medical bills.
Let us help you find other areas of liability that are possibly connected
to how your injuries occurred.
What Other Liability Will We Find?
When it comes to finding those who were negligent, it's sometimes a
long list of people who caused a chain reaction. We'll investigate
this for you and find out if perhaps an associate to the owners of the
company had some responsibility in instigating faulty equipment. It also
may fall directly on the shoulders of the manufacturer that built the
equipment causing your injury. Because of a production error your company
wasn't aware of, you could be looking at product liability.
Also, you have other companies responsible for maintaining construction
equipment and perhaps became negligent in keeping things safe.
These third-party claims sometimes add up to multiple people and considerably
more compensation in the future. Regardless, you need legal help to navigate
this, especially through the investigative stage.
