The attorneys at Krutch Lindell have extensive experience in representing workers who have been injured on construction sites and in other industrial settings. Often involving heavy machinery and heights, spinal injuries and traumatic brain injuries are common on construction sites and in the workplace. Because these injuries can take an injured person’s ability to work, we understand these incidents can be particularly disruptive and traumatic for their entire family.
Even in cases where state law may limit an employee’s ability to sue their employer, employees may still have claims against other third parties. Site owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and other entities may be at fault and legally liable for worksite injuries. Therefore, in addition to workers’ compensation benefits, you may be entitled to additional damages for lost income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of services, and disability. Families of workers killed in industrial accidents often have the right to make wrongful death and survival claims.
Due to the nature of construction and industrial accidents, these cases often have complex regulatory and factual issues. The attorneys at Krutch Lindell have the experience to investigate and pursue your claims.
