Construction Accident Lawyers
Carrying significant risks for employees, the construction industry is responsible for a considerable number of personal injuries every year, some of which are devastating. While the CDC reports that falls account for up to 22% of construction accidents, serious injuries may be sustained due to falling objects, equipment failure, fires, explosions, building or trench collapses. This is as well as illnesses related to overexertion and exposure to toxic substances.
While it’s the duty of the employer or construction supervisor to provide a safe and secure working environment, employees remain susceptible to a vast number of injuries on site. These injuries can range from sprains to broken bones, burns, lacerations, loss of hearing or vision, paralysis, traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury and even death.
As construction accident attorneys in North Charleston, Wern Lawyers is a firm dedicated to personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. If you’ve been injured on the job, you can be sure that we will work to make things right again.
We Ensure Injured Workers’ Rights Are Protected
While South Carolina’s Workers’ Compensation Act is designed to protect employees that have been injured on the job, it’s not safe to assume that you’ll be compensated for expensive medical bills, treatments, lost wages, disability or impairment. That’s why Wern Lawyers is here to help navigate the complexities, deadlines and legal regulations associated with workers’ compensation law. Our primary responsibility is to ensure that your rights are protected.
Have you sustained a concussion or brain injury due to a falling object on a construction site? Perhaps you’ve suffered broken bones, a spinal cord injury, amputation or paralysis as a result of a construction accident. Have you filed a claim? What benefits are you entitled to under workers’ compensation law? What if you suspect negligence?
In the wake of a serious construction-related accident, employees and their families have many questions. Thus, an experienced workers’ compensation attorney is key to helping injured workers obtain the medical and wage benefits that they deserve.
