Construction Accident Attorney in Edmonds
Maximizing Compensation for Our Clients
Construction accidents often result in catastrophic injury. If you were injured in an accident at a construction site, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages.
At Huppert Law Firm, PLLC, our Edmonds construction accident lawyer has nearly two decades of experience, extensive legal knowledge, and the resources and skills to determine liability and fight to secure compensation in complex cases.
Determining Liability in Construction Accidents
Construction site accidents often result in severe, catastrophic, or life-threatening injuries. Accidents on construction sites may result in head or brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, electrical burns, loss of limbs, puncture wounds, and even death. Due to the variety of contractors, subcontractors, and construction workers present on a site, establishing liability can be challenging and requires the skill of an experienced attorney.
Construction accidents may be caused by:
- Falls from heights
- Improperly secured scaffolding
- A construction site that is not properly maintained
- Faulty equipment
- Inadequate training
Washington is one of only four states with a state-run workers’ compensation program. However, securing compensation is not easy and may not be adequate for covering your expenses.
Our construction accident attorney in Edmonds helps clients maximize compensation by determining whether they should pursue workers’ compensation from their employers or bring third-party lawsuits against the liable parties. We can help you find the right course of action in your situation.
Beware of Offers from Insurance Companies
It is common for insurance companies to attempt to unfairly deny claims and reduce settlement offers to minimize their own losses. Taking an offer without speaking to an attorney is almost never in your best interest.
At Huppert Law Firm, PLLC, we gather information about your injuries, medical records, and the impact of the accident on your life to properly value your claim and fight for your rights in negotiations with insurance companies. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, our attorney has the experience and skill to represent you in court.
