Columbus Construction Accident Attorney
Experienced Construction and Industrial Accident Attorneys in Columbus, Ohio
At the law office of Brian G. Miller Co., L.P.A., our attorneys provide expert legal counsel throughout Central and Southern Ohio to those who have been seriously injured on construction sites or in any industrial accident. If you have been injured on a construction site or as the result of an accident during an industrial job, our experienced Columbus construction accident attorneys will provide you with the representation you need to seek recovery for your injuries.
Beyond Workers Compensation Claims, Additional Claims May Be Available
Our Columbus construction accident attorneys are able to assist with all elements of bringing legal claims for injuries occurring on construction sites or sustained in the course of construction or industrial jobs. State law requires that employers carry worker’s compensation insurance, but these programs do not always provide full recovery for injured workers. Worker’s compensation only pays wages for a limited period of time, meaning that it is common for workers with severe injuries that require lengthy recuperation periods to not fully recover for their financial losses. In cases where injury is caused by the negligence of a party other than your employer, our attorneys can help make up for insufficient worker’s compensation payments by seeking damages in court. If your injuries were caused by the negligent acts of another person, we can help make up the difference and make you financially whole again.
To determine whether you have a case for third-party liability, our construction and industrial accident attorneys are able to assess your claims and evaluate whether you are able to recover more than just worker’s compensation benefits. These cases can be difficult to understand, and that difficulty is compounded by the fact that it is often confusing for people to determine who exactly caused their injury. Our attorneys are well-versed in the area of third-party liability and will be able to help you understand your options. It is our mission to provide recovery to those who have been injured, and we are ready and able to do everything in our power to help you build a successful case.
Our Columbus construction and industrial accident lawyers are experienced in handling cases involving serious injuries to workers, including:
- On-the-job Car Wrecks — An employee is injured in a car accident caused by another while the employee is driving a company vehicle or a personal vehicle for work;
- Subcontractor’s Fault — A construction or labor worker employee is injured because of the fault of a subcontractor;
- Faulty Equipment — A laborer or construction worker is injured as a result of defective or faulty equipment or machinery;
- Falls Within the Workplace — A contractor or other person on a construction site may have a claim based upon falls due to unguarded openings, failure to warn or communicate, improper fall protection, and/or incorrectly assembled or faulty scaffolding;
- Negligent Property Owners — Inspectors or contractors being injured because of a negligent property owner;
- Failure to Warn of Known Dangers — Employees being injured because of a property owner failing to warn that employee of a dangerous condition on the property and that employee is injured.
In addition, simple miscommunication and/or negligent compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations by general contractors, subcontractors, and other third parties working at a construction site may cause serious injury and result in the ability to file third-party liability claims.
Regardless of your specific injury, our attorneys will be able to expertly handle your case and get you the best recovery possible.
