Working in construction is a dangerous profession with thousands of construction site injuries taking place every year in America. When it comes to workers’ compensation law, there’s a limit to the lost wages and medical expenses that are reimbursed.
If you seek compensation above the bare minimum, you’ll want to work with a seasoned injury attorney who is knowledgeable about construction companies and personal injury claims. Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. is an experienced law firm prepared to offer you legal advice backed with medical knowledge from our registered nurse and senior partner, Eileen Kroll.
A construction site accident’s liability can lie with the property owners, contractors, architects, or manufacturers. If a faulty piece of equipment is to blame for the accident, then you’re looking at product liability. In this kind of case, the manufacturer of that product can be held responsible for the accident. When dealing with an instance of product liability, it is best to consult with a Construction Site Accident Lawyer in Detroit.
Dealing with a liability claim or lawsuit related to an injury sustained on a construction job site can be difficult because contractors and insurance companies attempt to avoid responsibility.
Since employees need to watch out for their safety on a construction site, it can be hard to prove that you became injured on the job and that it was the general contractor or manufacturer’s fault. If you’re involved in a Michigan construction accident, the best way to proceed is to hire a construction accident attorney who can examine the evidence to help you build a strong case.
Your health is not something to take liberties with, so when it comes to compensation for pain and suffering, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our experienced Construction Site Accident Lawyer in Detroit.
