Spokane Construction Fall Injury Lawyer
CASE EVALUATIONS ARE FAST, EASY, AND FREE.
Falling on a construction site can easily lead to serious injuries and substantial medical bills. Find out if you can seek damages through a personal injury claim by speaking to a Spokane construction fall injury lawyer.
If you fell while working at a jobsite, you can file a workers compensation claim, but rarely does work comp provide enough to fully cover all of the damages that follow a serious injury. While the superior compensation offered by a personal injury claim isn’t always an option for workplace injuries, under certain conditions, it is possible.
A Spokane construction fall injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you investigate and determine whether you have grounds to proceed with a claim.
Most workplace accidents are limited to seeking a settlement through workers compensation. For you to be able to sue your employer, they need to either not carry work comp insurance or have intentionally placed you in harm’s way.
For example, if your job involves climbing a ladder and you fell, that would not constitute egregious negligence unless your employer knowingly failed to provide the right-size ladder. Proving misconduct such as this becomes easier if your employer was previously cited for a similar violation in the past.
It is far easier to sue a third-party who was responsible for your construction fall. This may include any of the following examples:
Workers compensation will pay for your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages. While a good stopgap, this may not come close to what you will need to maintain your lifestyle or make a full recovery.
A personal injury lawsuit could allow you to seek a settlement to cover all of your financial losses and non-economic damages:
If you are filing a lawsuit on behalf of a loved one who died in a construction fall, we will seek compensation for the financial contributions he or she would have made to the household, along with the pain and suffering experienced by your family.
