It’s important that you hire an experienced top-notch Personal Injury Attorney that has handled many construction cases.  You will also need a Worker’s Compensation Attorney to assist you with collecting money for your medical bills, lost earnings and out-of-pocket expenses.  The attorneys will investigate you accident and ascertain whether you have an exception to the Worker’s Compensation Law that allows you to sue your employer and/or whether a third party is responsible for your injury.  An example of a third party claim in a Construction Accident would be if a scaffold company did not properly erect the scaffold.  Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations will also be investigated.
