Construction Site Accidents
Many construction workers who get injured on the job spend a lot of time and energy filing and waiting for compensation benefits. However, when you contact us, we'll help you receive maximum compensation by holding contractors, subcontractors, or companies responsible for your job-related injury within the shortest time possible.
Morgan & Morgan injury law firm also helps survivors of individuals who died unexpectedly due to another party's negligence find compensation. Whether the death occurred at home, work, or anywhere else, all you need to do is give us a call to set up a consultation with one of our wrongful death attorneys.
Slip and Fall Accidents
You may be entitled to compensation if you slipped, fell, and sustained injuries on someone else's property due to negligence on their part. Property owners must ensure that their properties are safe for use, and if they fail to do so, they can be held responsible for injuries sustained on their property.
Negligence on the part of the property owner can involve the following:
- Slippery floors or unsafe walking surfaces.
- Dangerous construction equipment.
- Unsafe staircases, elevators, or escalators.
- Missing warning signs.
And so on.
Most properties are covered by homeowner's or business insurance policies. Therefore, you can file for a premises liability claim and receive financial and non-financial compensation if the defendant is found guilty of negligence.
What Steps Should You Take if You're Involved in an Accident?
If you or a loved one is involved in an accident due to the negligence of another party, you can take certain steps to receive full compensation for the injuries sustained.
At the Scene of the Accident
Alert the local law enforcement agencies about the situation to establish that the accident occurred. If there are any witnesses around, you may request them to provide you with their details if they are willing.
It's also highly advisable to document the accident by taking photos or videos of the scene and injuries you've sustained. This evidence can help establish how the accident occurred and the party responsible.
What If You Have Serious Injuries?
The first thing to do in this situation is to seek medical attention. While at it, obtain medical records that'll be used as crucial evidence in your claim. It's also advisable to follow your doctor's treatment plan and all follow-up treatments.
Don't ignore the injury, even if it seems minor. This is because a traumatic impact can trigger an adrenaline rush in your body and delay the physical symptoms, depending on the nature of the accident.
For instance, many people have lost their lives from such accidents due to internal bleeding. Statistics show that each year, about 60,000 Americans die from internal bleeding, also known as hemorrhaging.
This explains why you need to get yourself checked by a doctor right after the accident to evaluate the extent of injury both internally and externally and provide the appropriate treatment.
Do Not Agree to Anything Without Your Personal Injury Lawyer
You can contact your insurance company to inform them about the accident if required under their policy terms. However, avoid discussing terms of settlement with anyone. Instead, consult a competent personal injury lawyer from Morgan & Morgan to help you proceed with the case and negotiate for the best compensation.
Don't sign any documents unless reviewed by our attorney assigned to your claim. You're more likely to receive fair compensation if you let our attorney take care of everything than when you discuss settlement on your own.
What's the Likelihood of My Case Going to Trial?
Cases that take the least amount of time are those settled before trial. This, however, depends on whether the insurance company involved offers a reasonable offer. But without a reasonable offer, the case will most likely proceed to trial.
Either way, our attorneys will provide you with the best advice on whether to take a case to trial or not. We will also ensure we have enough evidence to prove negligence on the defendant's part.
