Choose an Experienced Construction Accident Attorney
As the backbone of progress throughout our country, construction workers provide some of the most important skillsets, experience and knowledge required to maintain our 21st century infrastructure. Unfortunately, construction work also presents a higher risk of work-related injuries; on average, two construction workers die every day due to injuries sustained while on the job. More so, one out of every five workplace deaths occur at a construction site.
When these injuries occur, they often have devastating effects on the individual worker and his or her family. In addition to serious, even permanent injuries, construction workers have to fight against lost wages, long stretches of low-to-non-paid medical leave, diminished physical abilities that may prevent future employment, and even loss of employment.
Additionally, many construction-related injuries receive medical treatment through workers compensation claims, which sometimes provides only the bare minimum in treatment, rehabilitative care, and financial coverage to the employee. Workers compensation claims also run the risk of minimalizing an employee’s pain and suffering, in an effort to reduce the settlement amounts of these claims.
At Pavlack Law, we recognize the substantial impact of worksite accidents on those within the construction industry. The financial, emotional and personal toll these tragic accidents have on workers and their families require an advocate who is willing to aggressively litigate their claims, while at the same time demanding the best possible recovery. Attorney Eric Pavlack and his team have a proven track record of recovery for construction site injuries, and will continue to push back against insurance companies who offer insulting, low-ball settlements in an attempt to brush these serious accidents under the rug.
