Suffering A Personal Injury On The Job
Any personal injury has the potential to be devastating and catastrophic. However, construction workers often face greater risks than the general public due to the nature of the job. In addition, coming back to work can be more difficult, due to the physical demands, rendering an injured person without the financial means to support their treatment and recovery.
At Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., our attorneys have assisted clients in Bismarck and throughout North Dakota who have suffered a job site injury or have been out of work as a result of a construction accident. Our lawyers know the impact such an injury can have on your life and your livelihood, and we pursue your claims tirelessly.
Construction injuries can occur due to many reasons, including:
- Falls from heights, including elevated platforms, scaffolding or ladders
- Falling objects, including tools and equipment
- Hazardous working conditions
- Equipment accidents, including power tool and machinery
These injuries can be life-changing, and even result in a wrongful death. We have assisted individuals through every step of the recovery process, from dealing with contractors and third parties, to helping obtain compensation that covers medical expenses, pain and inconvenience.
For many injured on job sites, workers’ compensation is often recommended. However, that’s not the only recourse. We can help you evaluate your options.
After a serious injury, contacting an attorney quickly can be most beneficial to your case, as we can help you preserve evidence and documentation of your injury and the surrounding circumstances.
