Columbia Elevated Falls Attorneys

When it is necessary to work from elevated positions, construction workers should have the kind of safety equipment and training they need to help mitigate the risk of falling. Nonetheless, even properly provisioned and trained construction workers may be unable to prevent a fall and may end up sustaining serious, if not life-threatening, injuries. Regardless of fault, workers who are injured under such circumstances should be eligible to claim workers’ compensation benefits immediately after their accident.

At the Goings Law Firm, LLC, our Columbia elevated falls attorney understands just how much may depend upon the compensation you can recover for your accident, and our legal team can help you assess every option for compensation that may be available for you. That being said, it may be possible for you to file an additional civil claim against a third party if we can prove they are responsible for the accident—for instance, if defective safety equipment failed to prevent your fall. Our legal team can help you understand and exercise your rights as you recover from your injuries, including but not limited to those that follow.

Brain and Back Injuries

While just about any injury that a person may sustain as the result of an elevated fall is likely to be serious, those involving the brain and back can be among the most severe. Even relatively minor brain injuries like concussions can prevent a worker from returning to work and affect the way he or she lives life until symptoms subside. More serious brain and back injuries can affect just about every aspect of that person’s life, not to mention his or her ability to earn a living. That being said, it will be important for us to make sure that you or someone you love is able to access workers’ comp benefits along with any other compensation that our legal team may be able to pursue from a third party that shares responsibility for the accident.

Wrongful Death

There are few events in life that are as devastating as the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one. If your loved one was taken from you because of the injuries he or she sustained in a fall, we can help you make sure your loved one’s workers’ compensation insurer treats you right. Additionally, we can determine whether anyone else may be held responsible for the accident and then help you take any legal action necessary to hold that party accountable for your loss.

Consult with an Elevated Falls Attorney in Columbia

If you or someone you love was injured after an elevated fall at a construction site, you should reach out to a lawyer to discuss what compensation you may be able to pursue for your injuries. As overwhelming as the coming legal process may seem, it is important to remember that our team will be there to help you assert your rights and protect your interests.
