Winston-Salem Construction Accident Lawyers
Protecting Your Rights After a Construction Accident Injury
In serious accidents on the job, we emphasize prompt and thorough investigation, preservation of key evidence, and expert analysis of all the facts necessary to prove liability and the full measure of your damages.
When companies abuse their power by delaying or refusing to pay fair insurance claims, the only way for Americans to hold them accountable is in court. At Comerford Chilson & Moser, L.L.P. we level the playing field so individuals can hold powerful insurance and construction interests accountable for their misconduct.
Our lawyers handle construction cases involving a wide range of work site accidents, including:
- Scaffolding falls, bucket truck accidents, and falls from roofs or ladders
- Excavation accidents
- Electrical utility accidents involving transformers or wires
- Heavy equipment accidents involving cranes, bulldozers, hoists, or other machinery
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Injuries caused by falling objects or debris
- Defective power tools or equipment
How Do I Know if I Can Pursue an Injury or Workers’ Compensation Claim?
Although North Carolina law generally prohibits an injured employee from suing the employer for personal injury damages, with workers’ compensation the exclusive remedy in most cases, there are many situations in construction work where a third party can be held liable for the injury.
Our lawyers will make a careful analysis of the circumstances of your accident, and we will often find that another subcontractor, a property owner, or the manufacturer of defective equipment or machinery can be held financially responsible to you–even while you’re collecting workers’ compensation benefits.
Our attorneys handle the most severe injury accident cases, including those involving gas explosions, spinal cord injuries, electrocution, or traumatic brain injury. We accept construction accident cases on a contingent fee basis. That means that we collect an attorney’s fee only if we successfully settle your case or win at trial.
If you or someone in your family was severely hurt or killed in a construction accident, contact Comerford Chilson & Moser, L.L.P. for a free consultation about your legal options for compensation.
