Columbia Slip and Fall Attorneys
Construction workers are expected to navigate a dynamic and uniquely dangerous workspace day in and day out. In order to make sure that every construction site is as safe as it can be under the circumstances, employers are expected to follow a number of strict state and federal safety regulations. Sadly, even though construction companies go out of their way to comply with established safety laws, serious slip and fall accidents are still relatively commonplace at construction sites.
At the Goings Law Firm, LLC, our Columbia slip and fall lawyers know just how important it will be for you to recover the compensation you need to offset the significant costs that will come to be associated with your injuries. It is with that in mind that our legal team will help you explore all of the options you may have to pursue compensation.
Claiming Compensation for Your Injuries
Though you will most likely be able to pursue workers’ compensation benefits to help offset some of the costs associated with your injury and absence from work, the circumstances that caused your accident may make you eligible for additional compensation. Depending on who or what ultimately caused your slip and fall injury, you could be eligible to file a civil claim, in addition to a workers’ comp claim, to pursue compensation from:
- The designer or manufacturer of a dangerous or defective product
- A third-party who caused your slip and fall injury
- An employer who demonstrated gross negligence
The legal process that you will need to work through can feel overwhelming, there is no denying that. However, our attorneys have the experience and resources necessary to help you work through a workers’ compensation claim or a civil suit so that you can pursue the full and fair compensation that you need.
