Contact our law firm today to discover our approach in pursuing compensation above and beyond workers’ compensation. We are available to serve you from our offices in Birmingham and Huntsville, Alabama.
Investigating the Cause of Construction Accidents
The cause of construction accidents is rarely clear-cut. Often, multiple crews work together on the same job site. This creates the possibility for another company to be held accountable for the catastrophic or fatal accident based on their negligent actions. Our law firm’s attorneys invest substantial resources investigating the cause of workplace accidents, involving:
- Jack hammer accidents and mixer accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents and back hoe accidents
- Grinder accidents and falling objects
- Scaffolding falls, ladder falls and circular band saw injuries
- Blow torch injuries and sand blaster injuries
- Dress press accident tool injuries and machine injuries
We analyze accident scene evidence to understand if the property owner, building supervisor or another contractor was negligent. Part of our work includes interviewing key witnesses to help us reconstruct the series of events leading up to the catastrophic accident. We are also prepared to consult safety experts in an effort to determine if an equipment failure caused the construction accident. Our legal team will pursue a personal injury claim if a third party is liable.
Pursuing Maximum Recovery in Construction Accidents
You can come back from a serious workplace accident. Powell & Denny seeks to maximize the benefits and compensation you receive. We will pursue personal injury damages if a third party is liable.
Our law firm will also advocate your right to recover damages under Alabama’s workers’ compensation system. If your injuries affect your ability to work for at least 12 months, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.
