Going up against a construction company is often necessary for a construction accident claim. Construction companies in Nevada have powerful legal teams to help them refute liability. A lawyer helps you even the playing field. Your attorney can go up against the defendant’s insurance provider while protecting your rights and best interests. A lawyer will not let you settle for less than your injuries demand. Your attorney will fight to pursue full compensation for all your past and future losses while also supporting your physical and emotional wellbeing.
More workers die in the construction industry than any other in the private sector, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. In 2018, 1,008 construction workers died on the job. This was 21.1% of all worker fatalities. Construction sites are also dangerous for nonworkers. Construction zone accidents can injure drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians in Henderson. It is generally up to those in charge of the site (the construction company, site manager, or supervisor) to keep it reasonably safe by preventing common hazards.
The federal government has many standards in place to improve the safety of construction sites. If an employer violates these standards, it can create an unnecessary risk of injuries and deaths. If you believe your construction accident arose from the negligence or recklessness of a construction company, worker, site manager, product manufacturer, contractor, property owner or anyone else, contact The Janda Law Firm for a free legal consultation.
If you were injured on the job as a construction worker, speak to a Henderson personal injury lawyer before saying yes to a workers’ compensation settlement. Once you accept, you cannot change your mind and you will give up the option to hold your employer responsible. Although you do not need to prove negligence to obtain workers’ compensation, proving fault during a Nevada injury lawsuit could result in better financial recovery for you and your family.
You might be eligible to bring a civil claim for a construction site accident if someone else negligently or carelessly caused the injuries in question. Our attorneys can review your case for free to let you know if we believe you have a construction accident lawsuit.
