A construction accident is frequently one of the worst types of personal injuries, because it almost always involves heavy equipment or working in precarious situations. When you’re injured in these situations, it’s important to call an attorney right away because workers’ compensation isn’t always enough to pay back your medical bills due to your injuries. Finding evidence is everything, and there could be challenges.
Here at Wilson Kehoe Winingham, we work with construction accident injuries on a regular basis where we see every type of injury. When looking for evidence, we look into every available piece of evidence to show what happened. This includes product liability, if necessary.
What Caused Your Injury?
Scaffolding and ladder falls are some of the most frequent construction accidents. These accidents might be direct fault of the company you work for in not maintaining safety codes, the general contractor, or the equipment itself. Conversely, it could be that the company behind the scaffolding or ladder didn’t design them well.
While falls cause serious injuries, roadway accidents while doing construction work (or heavy objects falling on you) are sometimes near fatal. We’ve seen far too many deaths in these scenarios, and any heavy object falling on your head may cause lifelong brain injuries.
Even seemingly minor accidents like power tool mishaps or a forklift accident could cause bodily injury affecting the rest of your life. We sometimes hire private investigators to find out more evidence if initial evidence is inconclusive. However, we work hard to find the truth, including security video footage when it’s available.
