The construction industry is one of the more dangerous in which to be employed, even if the companies involved are careful about following safety regulations. The inherent dangers that workers face on a daily basis include ladder falls, scaffolding accidents, trench collapse, electrocution, gas explosions, falling tools and other objects and a multitude of other dangers that workers could be exposed to. If a loved one has been seriously injured while working on a construction site, a West Virginia personal injury lawyer from Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC can assist you.
It is vital that an evaluation of the situation is undertaken immediately. As workers are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, this will be part of the process of achieving compensation. Another important factor is the issue of third party liability. When another company, whether an equipment manufacturer, subcontracting company, or other has contributed to the injury accident, further compensation can be pursued beyond the benefits of workers’ compensation.
