Construction Accident Litigation
Construction sites present ample opportunity for catastrophic injuries. Heavy machinery can malfunction, objects can fall on workers, and scaffolding that is not properly secured can result in devastating falls. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. With decades of experience handling these complex cases, The Hornbuckle Firm can help ensure your rights are protected every step of the way.
Unfortunately, with so many contractors, subcontractors, and workers on a site, determining liability in these cases is often incredibly difficult. While Washington state has one of only four state-run workers’ compensation programs in the country, securing compensation as an injured construction worker is far from easy and when compensation is gained through this program, it is seldom adequate to cover your expenses. Covering expenses requires establishing liability, a job best suited for an experienced personal injury lawyer.
It is possible to receive workers’ compensation from your employer and still sue a third party for additional damages. This is a common tactic in construction accident cases and an effective way to maximize the value of your compensation. Before you file for workers’ compensation or take any settlement offer, talk to one of our construction accident attorneys to make sure you are taking the course of action that will best meet all of your needs.
Construction Site Injuries
Construction site injuries are often severe or life-threatening. Common injures sustained on construction sites include:
- Head and brain injuries
- Electrical burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of limb
- Puncture wounds
- Wrongful death
Many of these injuries are caused by sites that are not properly maintained. Others are due to inadequate training or faulty equipment. The factors involved in your injury are important in determining who to hold accountable for your damages. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a construction accident, we can investigate the cause, determine all liable parties, and determine the true value of your case.
You Need An Attorney
Insurance companies know that construction site accidents can have several liable parties and many contributing factors. To minimize their losses, they often attempt to unfairly reduce or deny your claim. You may begin to receive offers from insurance companies almost immediately following your accident, but taking these offers is never a good idea. We will work closely with you, taking time to listen to the ways your injuries will impact your life and pouring over your medical records in order to understand what your claim is worth. With this information, we can protect you from the predatory practices of insurance companies, fight for your rights, and take your case as far as necessary to make sure you are provided everything you will need to recover.
