Representation for Injured Construction Workers & Bystanders
Construction accidents can cause devastating injuries, including broken bones, burns, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other catastrophic injuries. In some cases, a construction accident can result in death. Our law firm represents construction workers, bystanders, and families when a construction accident caused the death of their loved one.
Our law firm represents clients with injuries caused by:
- Heavy machinery
- Falling objects
- Catastrophic burns
- Safety violations
The injuries sustained in construction accidents often require lengthy hospitalization, surgery, extensive rehabilitation, ongoing medical care, and even permanent disability. Victims often find they are unable to work or facing a long recovery period. Our attorneys fight to maximize compensation for our clients, so you can focus on healing and recovering from your injuries.
Sources of Compensation
While work related injuries can happen in any profession, construction workers face increased risk of sustaining an injury on the job. The sources of compensation in a construction accident may include workers’ compensation benefits for injured construction workers. If you are having trouble obtaining benefits under workers’ compensation, an attorney may be able to help.
Under Michigan law, you cannot file a personal injury claim against your employer for injuries sustained in an accident on the job, including construction accidents. However, you may have a third party personal injury claim, if the responsible party was someone other than your employer. Our Grand Blanc construction accident lawyers can explain your legal rights and help you determine who is responsible for your injury.
Damages in Construction Accident Claims
The damages that may be available after a construction accident depend on several factors, including the at-fault party, the identity of the victim, and circumstances of the accident. Workers’ compensation provides benefits for medical bills, lost wages, and disability benefits. If you have a claim against a third party, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, future medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic damages.
