Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP


While precautions are usually taken to reduce the risk of injury to construction workers and visitors to construction sites, accidents are still commonplace, and can leave victims with debilitating injuries requiring costly and painful medical treatment. Equipment failure, falling debris, forklift injuries, crane accidents, falls from scaffolding, explosions, and electrocution are among the more common accidents that take place at construction sites. In the worst cases, these accidents can leave injured victims with long-term or permanent disability, or even wrongful death. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction site accident, an experienced construction accident lawyer can help you pursue the compensation you need to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Early Settlement Offers

When a construction site accident leaves a person injured, insurance companies will often put pressure on victims to accept an early settlement offer. They do so in the hopes that you will agree to receive far less in the way of compensation than what you could with representation from a seasoned construction site injury lawyer. The problem with these early settlement offers is that they usually represent the bare minimum of what the insurance company might be liable to pay, and by accepting, you may be signing away your right to pursue additional compensation in the future.

Early settlement offers from the insurance companies often fail to account for pain and suffering, as well as the lost wages resulting from your injuries. In cases where construction site accidents result in long-term or permanent disability, your compensation needs to reflect the wages you could have earned had you not been hurt as well as the long-term effects on your quality of life.
