Helping to Obtain Just Compensation for Construction Site Accidents
If you or a loved one was injured or possibly killed at a construction site, The Law Offices of Eugene K. Hollander can represent you or your family to obtain just compensation. Construction accidents may happen in a variety of ways, and an injured party may be able to obtain compensation depending on their legal status. If the injured party was a construction worker, he may have a worker's compensation claim against his employer. Recovery in these cases is often limited, and greater financial compensation may be available for instance, against a general contractor if the individual was employed by a subcontractor. The injured worker may also have a claim against another tradesman and his employer if that tradesman was negligent in the performance of his duties.
Oftentimes, construction accident result in very serious injuries such as bone fractures, burn injuries, brain injuries, herniated or bulging discs, paralysis, amputations or loss of a body part, and even death. An injured worker may recover for his medical expenses, future medical expenses, pain and suffering, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
