Legal Counsel After A Construction Accident
Over the years, OSHA, building codes and unions have attempted to create safer job sites for construction workers. Despite these intentions, the inherent nature of construction zones creates risks for injury.
Construction accident attorney Mike Sudekum has handled claims against owners of property for failing to require or implement safety procedures. He can help you navigate all avenues to compensation after a construction accident: a workers’ compensation claim, a thorough investigation of the causes of the accident and, if appropriate, a third-party liability claim or lawsuit.
Recovery For A Variety Of Construction Accident Types
Our attorney has obtained just compensation for clients who had suffered injuries resulting from:
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Compressed gases
- Subcontractors’ failure to clean up sites
- Welding accidents
- Asbestos exposure
Finding the responsible party in a construction accident takes knowledge developed through experience. A workers’ compensation claim does not require any determination of an employer’s fault, but it does not normally cover all costs after a serious or catastrophic injury or fatality. Discovering other responsible parties can open the door to a third-party liability claim or lawsuit in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. Responsible parties for construction accidents may be subcontractors, general contractors, architects, equipment companies and others involved in the job site.
