Construction job site accidents often result in serious injury, time lost from work, and steep medical expenses, which cause stress as you fight to get the fair construction accident settlement you deserve. This process can stretch on for months and even years as insurance companies try to minimize your injuries and place the blame for the injuries on you, especially if you don’t have a skilled personal injury lawyer on your side fighting for you.
At Mitchell, Hoffman & Wolf, we’ve got a long record of success fighting for clients like you to get them the compensation they are entitled to. We fight for you so you can focus on your recovery, and we offer guidance and help at every stage of the litigation process. Read on to learn how our experienced lawyers can help you obtain the maximum settlement value.
Construction Job Site Accidents
Construction sites always carry a level of danger, but accidents can often be prevented if safety rules are followed. Common construction job site threats include:
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- OSHA Safety Violations
- Scaffolding Accidents
- Trench Cave-ins
- Electrical Injuries
- Vehicle or Machinery Accidents (including cranes, bulldozers, and other heavy equipment)
With so many tools, large machinery, and unfinished projects around, strict steps must be taken to minimize the danger and promote safety. When contractors or other individuals on the site create hazardous conditions that lead to your injury, they need to be held accountable. This accountability comes as money to cover your lost wages, medical expenses, pain, suffering, disability, and disfigurement.
To get the funds you need to heal and move forward after the accident, it’s critical to fight for proper compensation instead of accepting an initial, and likely low, offer. For that fight, you need a skilled personal injury attorney on your side.
Maximize Your Construction Accident Settlement with a Lawyer
Though you technically don’t need a lawyer to pursue a personal injury case involving an injury on a construction job site, when you consider the advantages of working with an attorney versus approaching it alone, there’s a clear winner — especially when you partner with Mitchell, Hoffman & Wolf.
Interacting with Insurance Companies
When you don’t hire a lawyer, you must interact directly with your employer and the company’s insurance company. Sadly, their focus is on their own bottom line, not on your wellness. The insurer’s goal is to offer you the lowest possible settlement you’ll accept that way they can keep their profit margins high. To that end, they may even attempt to deny your claim entirely or try to discredit you. Due to your lack of knowledge of the ins and outs of insurance claims, you may not realize they’re offering you an unfair amount. You may also feel overwhelmed trying to balance your recovery with the battle for compensation and accept a low offer just to get it over with.
Never settle for less than you deserve. When you partner with an experienced personal injury attorney at Mitchell Hoffman & Wolf, you can dedicate your energy and focus to getting better while we fight for you. With our extensive knowledge and experience, we deliver tried-and-tested strategies honed by decades of experience and success to get you the result you are entitled to compensate you for the injuries caused by the defendant’s unsafe and negligent conduct.
Building a Strong Case
Beyond interacting with insurance companies, you’ll also be forced to build your own case if you don’t work with a lawyer. Proving a construction accident personal injury case involves an extensive range of steps including gathering evidence like photos of your injuries and the job site, reviewing construction contracts and plans, medical records, and obtaining witness statements, to name a few.
With an experienced personal injury lawyer, you can trust your case is being handled properly by professionals. At Mitchell Hoffman & Wolf, we go above and beyond to fight for our clients from start to finish and get them the money they are entitled to.
