Representing Innocent Pedestrians

When you are walking or driving by a construction site or other type of work place involving dangerous equipment, the company must take care to keep you safe. When they fail, serious injuries can occur from:

  • Falling equipment such as scaffolding
  • Explosions that cause burns
  • Car accidents due to construction workers and equipment
  • Tripping and falling on construction equipment

Our office can help you pursue the damages you deserve for your serious injuries like broken bones, brain injuries and scarring. Much like other premises liability claims, we can determine if property owners failed to take the proper precautions.

Representing Injured Workers In Third-Party Litigation

When you suffer from a workplace injury, workers' compensation benefits usually help you cover medical bills and lost wages. However, many times a third party may be responsible for the actual accident. Some examples include:

  • Contractors on the job site who are not properly trained and cause you harm
  • Defective or poorly manufactured power tools and heavy equipment
  • Scaffolding falls due to improper assembly and safety instructions
  • Getting into an accident with a negligent driver while using a company vehicle

When third parties are responsible for your injuries instead of your employer, we can help you maximize your compensation by filing suit in addition to pursuing workers' comp benefits.
