Carthage Construction Accident Lawyers
Statistically, construction jobs are among the most dangerous in the world. Workers routinely suffer broken bones, deep cuts, serious burns, permanent back injuries and even loss of limbs. Many of these injuries result in extensive medical bills. Some injuries are permanent and prevent a worker from returning to his or her livelihood.
The attorneys at Rowland & Yauger, Attorneys & Counselors at Law, help construction workers understand their rights following a work site accident and recover the compensation they are entitled to by law.
Tragically, some construction site accidents result in death, most often by electrocution or long falls. If you have lost a loved one in a construction accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Our experienced and aggressive personal injury lawyers will review the facts of your case and recommend a course of action.
We can help you determine if you have a legitimate workers’ compensation benefits claim and whether it makes sense to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Generally speaking, North Carolina law prohibits an injured employee from suing his or her employer for personal injury damages. There are some situations, however, where a third party — a subcontractor or manufacturer of a defective product, for example — can be held financially responsible for an accident that results in serious injury.
Our experienced Carthage construction accident attorneys can review the facts of your case and recommend the best steps to take next.
