Construction is a very dangerous industry in Nevada, seriously injuring or killing thousands of victims every year. Even when safety precautions are taken, events like explosions, malfunctioning tools or safety equipment, falls and other life changing accidents still occur all too often. Unfortunately, the injuries suffered from construction site accidents are often significant, causing long term or even permanent disability, emotional trauma, and ongoing medical treatment that can result in financial hardship for victims and their families. If you or your loved one has suffered severe injuries due to a construction site accident, you may be entitled to compensation to help cover the cost of the damages you have endured. Our firm will help you learn about your legal options and negotiate a settlement to pay for pain and suffering, ongoing medical expenses, lost past and future wages, loss of consortium, and funeral expenses.
While workers’ compensation will help cover the cost of many construction worker injuries, the meager settlement amounts offered are rarely enough to relieve the financial hardship suffered by victims and their families. Fortunately, many victims may be able to pursue third party injury claims to help recover a greater portion of the damages they have endured. If your accident was even partially caused by poor safety equipment design or defects, malfunctioning tools, or the negligence or actions of another worker, our team will help ensure that those parties are held accountable for your injuries as well.
While the underlying cause of many construction site accidents is very clear, many injuries are a result of a variety of contributing factors that can be difficult to identify. Failing to evaluate every aspect of the events surrounding your accident can result in you receiving far less compensation than what you deserve. Our firm is committed to conducting a thorough investigation of your construction site accident to identify factors like OSHA violations, defective safety gear, unsafe practices by other workers, and malfunctioning tools and other equipment.
