Workers are hurt every day on the job in construction and industrial accidents. One of the most common work injuries is from falls, but injuries also result from lack of machine guarding, electrical systems design, scaffolding, or blatant disregard of safety standards.
Early investigation by an Evansville-based construction accident attorney of Robert John and Associates of an industrial accident or a work accident is vital to determine if someone other than the employer or fellow employee is responsible. If your employer and/or fellow employee is responsible your claim is limited to worker's compensation. However, there are times that third parties are at fault. Many times manufacturers of equipment could be negligent causing unnecessary injury and sometimes death. Injury by equipment is the third leading cause of workplace accidents. The Evansville-based industrial accident lawyers at Robert John and Associates will investigate workplace injuries to determine whether a third party is wholly or partly to blame for the accident.
If you are involved in an automobile or truck accident while driving for work purposes, a negligent driver is responsible for the injuries caused if not a co-worker. The personal injury attorneys at Robert John and Associates will pursue each party that is responsible for the injury in a work-related accident. If you have been injured or lost a loved one from a construction accident or industrial accident caused by another's negligence or faulty equipment, contact us to discuss your legal rights. Most settlements do not require court and many injury settlements are reached without litigation.
• Report the injury immediately to your employer.
• Have someone take pictures of the location, machinery, tools, and/or vehicles involved.
• Follow the medical instructions of your worker’s compensation case manager and keep all scheduled medical appointments.
• Do not sign any worker’s compensation settlement documents without legal advice.
• Contact the Evansville-based construction and industrial accident attorneys of Robert John and Associates as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights and all avenues for just compensation for your work related injuries.
