      Augusta Construction Accident Lawyers

      If you have been seriously injured in a construction accident, we understand how you may be feeling. These accidents can seriously impact your life and your families. Our Augusta construction accident lawyers are here to help you get the compensation that you deserve. After you read about your case, please call our office to set up a free initial consultation. We will be there to help you every step of the way. Construction accidents can be incredibly serious, and they come with high medical bills. If you are injured during construction work on a building site due to someone else’s negligence, you should consider taking legal action to recover the compensation you deserve. There are regulations that your employer must take set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). If OSHA regulations were violated by your employer and directly lead to you becoming injured on the job, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Construction accidents are not just limited to those who are actually doing the physical work involved in construction projects. People who have been hurt by defective products being used on job sites may also be able to take action against their employers for damages sustained as a result of these injuries. They can also file lawsuits against builders, contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, and even government agencies if negligence is involved in any way. These cases require an investigation into liability by an experienced construction accident lawyer so that all parties responsible for causing the accident are pursued. Our law firm has handled a variety of construction-related cases. The type of construction site accidents we commonly see include crane accidents, electrocutions, unsafe ladders, scaffolding accidents, defective machinery accidents, falls from the top of structures, electrical-related accidents, falling debris, and more. A workplace accident on a construction site in violation of OSHA can make your employers responsible for any injuries you have sustained. In some cases, fatalities can even occur if these regulations are not followed. If you or a loved one have suffered an injury or death on a construction site, reach out to our personal injury law firm. We have dealt with many construction site accidents over the years and can guide you through your injury claim from beginning to end. We have successfully recovered compensation for construction workers injured on construction sites in Augusta. We can maximize the compensation you can obtain by proving the damages you have suffered such as lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, permanent disability, and more. We can also advocate on your behalf to get you your full workers’ compensation benefits going forward. Many construction companies have workers’ compensation insurance. We can ensure you are treated fairly for your workers’ compensation claim or personal injury claim.

      Georgia Statute of Limitations for Construction Accidents

      You are always given a statute of limitations when you are pursuing a claim. This is the amount of time that you have to bring your claim or have it settled in civil court. The statute of limitations in Georgia is two years starting from the date of your accident. Although two years may seem like a while, you should never wait to talk to an attorney. You want them to have as much time as possible to build the strongest case. If they are further crunched for time, they may not be able to maximize your case. If you try to bring a case late, you will no longer be eligible for compensation. The statute of limitations defines a hard deadline and, once it passes, there is nothing anyone can do to help you. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the better off you will be.

      How Georgia Construction Accident Compensation Works

      There is a considerable difference between any given personal injury case and a construction accident case in terms of compensation. Usually, a construction accident case means that you are going to go through your employer’s workers’ compensation benefits. That can compensate you for past and future:
      • Lost wages
      • Medical bills
      There are instances in these cases, however, where you may have more than one option for compensation. If there was a third party involved in causing your accident, you may be able to make a claim against them. You are not allowed to sue your employer, but a third party that was negligent can be held liable for your injuries. You will have to prove that they were the cause of your injuries. They will have either had to act in a way that harmed you or neglected to do something that would have protected you from harm. Your lawyer will be able to go over the details of your case and help you determine the track you should take to get the fullest compensation award possible.

      Important First Steps After Your Construction Accident

      There are three very crucial steps that you need to take after you have been injured in a construction accident:
      1. Report your injury
      2. Seek immediate medical attention
      3. Hire a competent lawyer
      Reporting your injury is going to be a key step, if you want to receive compensation. You will likely do this before you do anything else. You need to tell a supervisor or your project manager that you were hurt and they need to file a report. Get a copy of this report so that you can have it for your records. Do not just tell a coworker what happened as you leave; you need to get your accident in writing to have a claim. It is very important to get medical care as soon as you possibly can, as well. Your health is the top priority over anything else. You should have a doctor look at your injuries and treat them as soon as you can get there. If you try to ignore your injuries, you are at risk of them getting worse and turning into serious problems. The sooner you get treatment, the sooner you will recover from your injuries. Listen to all of the advice that you doctor gives you and do all of the follow up they request. Another risk you take if you wait to seek medical attention is drawing the suspicion of the insurance company. They will look at your records and they will either claim that you lied about how bad your injuries were or how you got hurt. That would give them grounds to reduce your claim or eliminate it completely. The third step is also so very important to the success of your case. You have to work with a competent lawyer who knows how to handle construction accident cases. You should hire someone who has experience with these cases and knows what evidence needs to be collected, how scenes should be investigate, and how to put you on the right path for full compensation.
