Construction Accident Attorneys Augusta, Evans, Thomson, and Waynesboro
Constructing the buildings and spaces in which we live is dangerous. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act data, 20% of people who die at work die on construction sites. OSHA calls the top four types of workplace accidents the “fatal four”: falls; electrocutions; getting struck by objects or caught in equipment; being crushed under collapsing structures. Construction professionals aren’t the only ones at risk near construction sites. Motorists and pedestrians injured or killed as they’re passing by sites could have legal rights and entitled to compensation. Hawk Law Group can consult with you on your case and let you know about your options.
Construction companies have a responsibility to the safety of everyone near their construction sites. Workers, managers, equipment makers and operators all work together under specific standards to keep everyone safe and projects on time and budget. If you’ve been injured or someone you love was killed in a construction site accident, you might be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.
Construction accidents can require significant medical care and recovery. Sometimes even when the accident isn’t that severe, it can leave workers unable to support themselves and their families. And when someone does get hurt, filing a claim can be challenging. It’s hard to know what forms to fill out, and when you’re in pain, it’s even harder to advocate for yourself and your interests. Let us take that burden off your shoulders. Hawk Law Group is experienced in filing, settling, and litigating construction site accidents. If you’re entitled to compensation to make your healing and recovery time less traumatic and damaging to you and your family, we’ll help you get it.
When Negligence Was Involved, Contact an Attorney
Without question, construction sites are dangerous workplaces. However, when an accident and injury is caused by the negligence of a general contractor, subcontractor or another careless individual, it is important to hire legal representation to hold them accountable. If you were injured on the job and suspect that negligence contributed to the accident, contact The Hawk Law Group in Augusta. Common construction accidents and injuries include:
- Construction site falls
- Wall collapse injuries
- Injuries caused by falling debris
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Injuries caused by improperly covered holes and uneven surfaces
- Injuries involving machinery and equipment
You Could Be Entitled to More Than Workers’ Compensation
While workplace injuries are covered by workers’ compensation, often, construction accident victims can recover additional compensation through a personal injury claim. It is important to know that workers’ compensation does not provide comprehensive coverage for all possible damages. For example it doesn’t include payment for scarring or future medical bills, and it doesn’t fully reimburse you for lost wages. Workers’ compensation payments can also abruptly end for various reasons. Workers are suffering injuries daily on the Plant Vogtle nuclear power plant and the Savannah River site. Please contact our lawyers for aggressive representation. At The Hawk Law Group, we have been helping injured construction workers throughout the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) for more than 30 years.
