When Negligence Was Involved, Contact an Attorney
Without question, construction sites are dangerous workplaces. However, when an accident and injury is caused by the negligence of a general contractor, subcontractor or another careless individual, it is important to hire legal representation to hold them accountable. If you were injured on the job and suspect that negligence contributed to the accident, contact The Vic Hawk Law Firm in Augusta.
Common construction accidents and injuries include:
- Construction site falls
- Wall collapse injuries
- Injuries caused by falling debris
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Injuries caused by improperly covered holes and uneven surfaces
- Injuries involving machinery and equipment
You Could Be Entitled to More Than Workers' Compensation
While workplace injuries are covered by workers' compensation, often, construction accident victims can recover additional compensation through a personal injury claim. It is important to know that workers' compensation does not provide comprehensive coverage for all possible damages. For example it doesn't include payment for scarring or future medical bills, and it doesn't fully reimburse you for lost wages. Workers' compensation payments can also abruptly end for various reasons.
