South Carolina Injury Attorney Seeks Justice for Construction Site Accident Victims
Skilled Lawyer Helps Injured Workers in South Carolina Recover What They Deserve
Construction sites are dangerous places to work. In fact, one out of five worker deaths in the United States involves construction workers. Every ladder, walkway, platform or scaffold can injure a worker on the job. If you’ve been hurt on a job site, let attorney David Hood and co-counsel fight for what you deserve! We represent workers injured on building sites across South Carolina, getting them the help they need.
South Carolina Lawyer Handles a Range of Construction Injury Claims
Nearly every tool or machine on a job site can cause injury, often when safety procedures are not followed. Workers suffer injuries caused by:
- Falls from scaffolds or platforms
- Falling equipment such as hammers, saws, and other tools
- Burns and electric shock
- Exposure to harmful things, such as toxic chemicals
Common causes of worksite deaths are falls, moving objects, electric shock, and getting caught or stuck in between surfaces. Our lawyers represent injured workers and their families regardless of the cause of the accident.
If you’ve been hurt on a South Carolina building site you may have different legal rights and remedies. Because it can depend on who and what caused your injury. So first we find out who is responsible for the actions or conditions that caused your injury. Then the facts dictate whether we file a workers’ comp claim or a third-party lawsuit, or both.
Skilled Workers’ Comp Lawyer Guides Clients Through Worksite Accident Claims
Workers’ comp is a no-fault insurance system in which employers provide benefits for injured workers. This process is the standard way for hurt workers to get their medical bills and other costs paid. Benefits can cover medical expenses and partial wages for the time that you are injured and unable to work. There are limits on the doctors you see, how much you can get per week and for how long. We work to get injured workers all they are entitled to under South Carolina law.
We Also Help Injured Workers With Third-party Claims
While the law typically prevents workers from suing their own employers, it does not prevent lawsuits against other companies. Workers are often able to bring claims against someone working for another company who injured them on a job site. Let our lawyers decide whether bringing a lawsuit against a third party is an option for you!
Counselors Help Families After Fatal Job Accidents
When a jobsite accident is fatal, our attorneys can help the victim’s family get justice. Families might be entitled to workers’ comp death benefits including payback for final expenses and wage replacement. If the accident was caused by a third party, we can help your family in bringing a wrongful death lawsuit. Because that suit will seek money for a range of losses that are not included under workers’ compensation.
