Among the most hazardous places for workers are residential and commercial construction sites. Following a construction site accident, workers and their families face more than the consequences of the physical injury, but also face the uncertainty and loss of income that arises from that injury. While every employee injured in a construction accident would happily go back in time and prevent the accident that caused their injury from occurring, that isn’t an option. Instead, what is essential after a construction accident is for the worker and their family to focus on healing. Also, what is important is to have someone to help the family who can focus on receiving the compensation and protection the family deserves. That is the kind of effort Emerson Divorce and Accident Injury Attorneys, L.L.C.’s personal injury lawyers in Indiana provide to their clients.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer? Can’t I Just File My Own Claim in Indianapolis?
If it was just that easy you would not be reading this. Being successful with a construction accident injury claim requires much more than simply filing a claim. With several architects, contractors, owners, subcontractors, and project managers at a construction site, a simple construction accident can quickly become complicated. Add to that the fact that every contractor has an insurance carrier keeping a close eye on accidents in an effort to ensure that workers injured in construction accidents receive as little compensation as possible.
Construction Accident Loss of Income in Indianapolis
Following a construction accident, a number of things seem to happen at once. First, a claim for workers’ compensation is filed. This can fill the hole caused by the worker’s loss of income. Second, the insurance carriers (and likely there will be many) and OSHA will begin an investigation. These investigations tend to point the finger at the worker or his employer (who the worker cannot sue for negligence). Add to that the fact that mistakes can be made at this time which can limit the injured worker’s right to recover. Initially, responsibility for a construction accident may seem quite clear, the legal determination of fault can be extremely complex. A thorough investigation of the facts of the case as well as the contracts, insurance policies, federal, state, and local laws that apply is necessary to determine fault.
