After you have suffered one or more injuries at a construction site, a flood of money and medical issues can confront you daily. One of the issues you may face is to answer the question, “Do I need an attorney after a construction accident?” Although the answer to the question varies depending on a victim’s circumstances, the answer is frequently an emphatic “yes.”
A construction accident lawyer can help you in several ways. First, you need to navigate the insurance system to process a claim that provides you with the just compensation you deserve. Second, if your case involves an act of negligence, you have the right to file a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages. Third, you have a limited amount of time to file an insurance claim and a civil lawsuit. Hiring a construction accident lawyer ensures you file the proper legal documents before the expiration of the statute of limitations.
Perhaps the most important reason to hire a construction accident attorney concerns the type of claim you should file. Most construction accident cases require the filing of a worker’s compensation form to help an employee receive compensation. If your case involves negligence on the part of your employer or another party, you might have a strong enough case to seek just compensation by filing a civil lawsuit.
