As a construction worker, you accept that your line of work subjects you to many risks for serious injury — more, perhaps, than most other jobs. That hasn't stopped you from working hard and with pride.
Now that you've been injured on the job, however, you need compensation to make sure you can continue to provide for yourself and your family. You deserve an experienced lawyer to help you get every dollar of compensation you've earned for the hard work you've done. That's where our firm comes in.
Your Strongest Advocate And Most Trusted Counselor
Our Evansville personal injury lawyers work with people facing the aftermath of serious injuries every single day. They know from decades of combined experience that serious accidents do more than make the doctor's bills pile up. They can mean being out of work for weeks or months at a time, and possibly being unable to return to the same job at all. They can also mean missing out on spending time with family and loved ones, and dealing with pain that lingers for years or even the rest of one's life.
If you were injured on a construction site, chances are workers' compensation will not even come close to fully compensating you for your financial losses. Our legal team can assist you in maximizing your workers' comp claim. We can also determine if there was someone other than your direct employer (a "third party") whose careless actions led to your accident. Examples of this might include:
- Exposure to toxic materials
- Defective machinery and other products
- Motor vehicle accidents involving non-company vehicles
If a third party's carelessness contributed to the accident that caused your injuries, we may be able to pursue a legal claim above and beyond your workers' comp claim. Doing so may make it possible for you to obtain additional compensation for:
- Medical costs that exceed your disability benefits
- Lost wages and lowered earning potential
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
