West Virginia Construction Lawyer ◦ Heavy Equipment Accidents
When the unthinkable occurs such as a fatal excavator injury, workers and their families need zealous, knowledgeable attorneys who are experienced in handling construction accidents. Bailey, Javins & Carter has nine personal injury and wrongful death lawyers ready to make sure you are awarded an ample settlement to compensate for your heavy equipment accident injury.
To schedule a no-risk consultation with a West Virginia lawyer with ample experience recovering compensation for construction workers injured in heavy equipment accidents, contact Bailey, Javins & Carter. Each case is different, and each injured worker deserves a careful evaluation after a catastrophic accident involving heavy equipment, such as the following:
- Skid steer loaders
- Front end loaders
- Cement trucks
- Aerial lifts
Investigation after a catastrophic injury often reveals improper maintenance of equipment or improper procedures such as disabled front brakes on a truck. A worker may be thrown out of a truck when hydraulic lines break, or suffer burn injuries as a result of a fire in the cab. Falls from equipment such as cranes or man lifts are most often determined to be the result of human error.
Contact with power lines leading to electrocution or fatal accidents occurring as a result of crushes by heavy equipment demand immediate and thorough investigation, both for the sake of the family of the deceased and for the safety of other workers.
After a catastrophic injury or a wrongful death, no amount of money can replace what was lost for the injured worker or for the bereaved family. A personal injury claim or a wrongful death lawsuit is a legal remedy that can bring some financial relief to the injured or surviving family members through wage replacement, compensation for medical bills, compensation for adaptive equipment and therapy, and compensation for pain and suffering.
We work on a contingency basis. We don’t get paid unless you do.
