Las Vegas and Henderson are among the fastest growing cities in the country. With increased construction comes increased construction & work site accidents. Hiring a work injury lawyer to fight in your corner is necessary to get the compensation you deserve.
Construction sites are inherently hazardous environments. General contractors and multiple subcontractors bring many electricians, plumbers, and other construction workers, all using heavy equipment, power tools and construction trucks. Some men and women are working on rooftops, scaffolding and ladders. Others are in open trenches and foundation excavations. Serious work site accidents are not unusual. The injuries that result from construction accidents are often severe and life-altering.
Construction Accident Injury Claims
Due to the extreme danger posed in construction sites in Las Vegas, workers who are involved in accidents there can suffer catastrophic – and even fatal – injuries. When a construction worker falls from scaffolding and suffers a spinal cord injury or a worker is involved in a forklift or crane accident and suffers a brain injury, full compensation is truly necessary to provide life-long care for these catastrophic injuries.
Workers’ compensation exists to cover lost wages and medical expenses, but it’s rarely sufficient for serious injuries such as amputation, spine, back or neck injuries or brain injuries.
Fatal Injuries at Work
In addition to medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, relatives of a person killed in a fatal accident deserve compensation for loss of love and support. At Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers in Las Vegas, we fight for the rights of construction workers and their families. We also investigate the possibility of additional sources of compensation through third party liability claims. When you contact us to discuss a construction or work site injury, we will investigate all possible sources of compensation such as equipment manufacturers, building designers or suppliers and we’ll fight for you.
Who Is Responsible For Your Construction Site Injuries?
Depending on the circumstances surrounding the construction accident, the victim or surviving relatives may have reason to file a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer of a defective power tool or other defective equipment. Claims could also potentially be brought against a general contractor who erected a dangerous scaffold or against a subcontractor whose negligent violations of state or OSHA regulations caused injury.
When handling a construction accident injury or wrongful death claim, our lawyers, assisted by scientific and safety experts, perform a thorough investigation and build a strong case. Our Settlements and Verdicts page documents sizable verdicts and settlements our attorneys have recovered on behalf of clients. We’re focused on helping our clients recover the resources necessary to rebuild their lives following a debilitating job site injury.
