The Importance of Hiring Injury AttorneysWho Specialize in Construction Accidents
Construction is a dangerous industry, and it can be even more dangerous if you do not know what your rights are as a construction worker. A few commonsense safety rules go a long way toward preventing many injuries, but sometimes those rules are ignored or overruled by managers who make the final decisions about workplace safety. Unfortunately, some workers are severely injured when companies fail to take proper precautions. Construction workers need an advocate on their side — someone who will fight hard for them when they are in a legal dispute with their employer or a coworker.
Our lawyers handle cases in both federal and state courts, but we also work with clients who wish to pursue their claims through private arbitration or mediation. We want our clients to understand all their options, so they can make an informed decision about how to proceed with their case. We will do everything we can to ensure that your claim is handled in a timely and cost-effective manner, and we practice strict confidentiality when it comes to your personal information.
We understand your industry, and we know which insurance company or defense firm may offer you the best chance to obtain a fair settlement for your injuries. At the same time, we know which construction companies and insurance companies are more likely to be willing to take a reasonable settlement deal. Once we have determined who is responsible for your accident, we call them and attempt to negotiate a fair and timely settlement without taking too much of your time. In some cases, we can negotiate a settlement before the case even goes to court. In other situations, it is necessary for us to wait until after all of the evidence has been presented in a trial.
