A Construction Accident Can Result in Serious Injury
A Louisville construction accident can result in serious injury, often permanent requiring life altering changes to your home, vehicles and workspace. When permanent injuries such as lost digits, amputation or paralysis are the result of a construction accident “Life Care Plan” may be required. These cases require attorneys with extensive legal skill and trial expertise. You only have one opportunity to financially recover for what has happened, as well as all of the care, treatment and life modifications required in the future.
Our Louisville construction accident attorneys have handled construction site accident claims on behalf of individuals injured on both commercial and residential properties, in factory accidents, while working on the interstate or in civil construction of roads or bridges.
You Have Rights If You Were Injured On The Job
Many workers do not realize that they may have potential claims against contractors, negligent subcontractors and parts manufacturers. If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation, but you may also be able to collect additional compensation if any individual or agency was negligent and caused your injury. Our attorneys will fully investigate your case and claim to identify every responsible party. We will visit the scene of the accident, work with experts, contact witnesses and preserve all necessary evidence to pursue your claim.
