Why Hire a Lawyer To Fight the Insurance Company?
Getting Compensated for Injuries While On The Job
Many workers assume their injuries are covered under workers’ compensation laws, but a third party may also be liable for your injuries. If other responsible parties (other than your employer) such as the property owner or general contractor failed to provide proper safety equipment or follow proper safety practices or equipment used at the construction site did not meet standards, you may be eligible for additional compensation.
Protecting Your Interests Following a Construction Site Injury
Though the claims process is often lengthy, there are steps you can take immediately following an accident to protect your rights to compensation:
- Make note of relevant details. Think broken scaffolding, ripped harnesses, unsecured objects, etc.
- Take the names and contact information of witnesses.
- If you have your phone on you, take pictures of your injuries and surroundings.
All of these details can help strengthen your case in the event the insurer denies your claim.
The Stages of a Personal Injury Claim
After you meet with a member of our team, we will file the initial court papers on your behalf and respond to other answers, complaints or motions. We will then proceed to the discovery stage, in which we gather all available evidence to establish the facts of your case.
When it’s possible and makes sense, we can settle your case out of court for full value. However, if the third-party refuses to settle for a fair amount, we are ready to aggressively pursue a favorable outcome in court.
