Clarkston Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

At the Warshauer Woodward Atkins, we represent parties injured in construction accidents. The Clarkston workplace incidents attorneys from our firm can help you recover a financial award to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.

Despite strict rules and guidelines that are designed to make construction sites safe for workers and passersby, construction accidents frequently occur. Serious injuries, including loss of limbs, head injuries, and orthopedic injuries, are commonly the result of construction site accidents.

Common Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites can be dangerous places filled with potential hazards if proper precautions have not been taken. While a construction site accident can occur in numerous ways, some of the most common accidents include:

  • Unprotected openings
  • Falls from scaffolds
  • Crane accidents
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals
  • Welding accidents
  • Heavy equipment hazards

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your construction site accident, our Clarkston workplace incidents attorneys can help. An attorney from the Warshauer Woodward Atkins will fight for your legal right to be fully compensated for your injury.

Construction Site Accident Injuries

Construction site injuries can be severe and may involve life-threatening injuries that will require years of medical treatment and physical therapy. The most common types of injuries suffered on construction sites include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic and catastrophic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Electrocution
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Death

Our Clarkston workplace incidents attorneys have the experience to identify and track down the responsible parties. You will be able to focus on your physical recovery from your devastating injury without having to worry about the status of your legal case. Our firm works with a network of lawyers who specialize in workers’ compensation claims. We do not pursue those claims but instead pursue a product liability or third party liability claim that will let us get the full compensation for the injured worker and his or her family that workers compensation alone does not provide.

Lost Wages and Earning Capacity

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, the Clarkston personal injury attorneys from our law firm can help to make sure that your financial security is not also injured as a result.

When construction workers get hurt and are forced out of work, the financial impact of missing work can be as devastating as the physical injuries. Unfortunately, the construction industry does not have many well-paying jobs available for workers who are temporarily unable to engage in the hard, physical labor that the profession generally requires.

Among the damages that injured construction workers may be entitled to receive are financial awards for lost wages and the loss of future earning capacity. You may have a legal right to receive money you did not earn as a result of being hurt, as well as funds you would have earned during your construction career if you had not been permanently disabled on the job.
