About Construction Accidents
A construction site is a busy and hazardous place for a person to work. Statistically, according to the U.S. Dept of Labor, construction work is one of the most dangerous civilian occupations. With heavy equipment and numerous companies and subcontractors coming and going it takes constant vigilance to avoid an injury. Many good people have suffered severe to fatal injuries despite their best efforts to avoid danger. If you or your loved one has been harmed in such an accident, waste no time in getting the advice of a Lafayette personal injury lawyer who is skilled in handling construction site injury cases.
Construction Accident Lawyer in Lafayette
Defective machinery and equipment, collapsing scaffolds, equipment with inadequate safety guards, or negligent subcontractors can cause life-changing injuries in just moments. Crush injuries, amputations, electrocutions, exposure to toxic chemicals, spinal cord injuries,
traumatic brain injuries and broken bones are just a few of the serious injuries which come out of a construction site accident. These injuries are covered by workers' compensation but that alone may not provide sufficient compensation to cover all of your damages. In contacting an experienced construction accident lawyer right away, an investigation into the accident scene can be carried out before the scene has changed much in order to determine the cause and identify the liable parties.
Although an injured worker may not sue an employer except under very special circumstances, if the accident was caused by a third party such as a negligent manufacturer of a defective tool or machine or by a negligent subcontractor who created a dangerous situation you may file a claim for compensation from that party. Discuss the circumstances of your accident with a skilled personal injury lawyer by calling Mr. Doran for an initial consultation.
