Full-Service Representation For Construction Accidents
The construction industry is a vital resource to maintain and improve the entire community in South Carolina. The hazards, rigors and physical demands of construction work leads to numerous injuries on work sites throughput the Lowcountry. Construction accident injuries can require extensive medical care and long-term rehabilitation. Moreover, lost time from work can overburden the household budget, especially when the injured worker is the sole breadwinner.
Providing Guidance To Injured Workers At Every Stage Of The Process
At George B. Bishop, Jr., PA, in Moncks Corner, I have substantial experience guiding clients through the entire process involved with job site injury claims. As a full-service personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyer, I take the time to evaluate the relevant details to identify all possible sources of financial recovery.
Most employers know what steps should be taken after an accident to help workers in obtaining workers’ compensation benefits. However, not all employers perform their obligations faithfully. Injured workers often do not know how to navigate the complex process. Workers’ comp claims have specific timelines that need to be adhered to. If a third-party contractor at the construction site was involved in causing the accident, injured workers are not always aware that they may have a separate personal injury claim in addition to workers’ comp benefits.
The Most Dangerous Construction Site Accidents
While construction workers can suffer a wide range of work injuries, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration says the most dangerous accidents involve what the agency call the “fatal four” types of accidents:
- Falls from heights
- Workers being struck by a falling object at the job site
- Workers being caught in between two objects, often a structure and moving vehicle or piece of heavy equipment
If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury while working in the construction injury, it is important for you to understand how to pursue the benefits you need. I work personally with clients every step of the way with the sole goal of obtaining the full and fair benefits my clients are entitled to receive.
