How much is my construction accident claim worth?
There are several factors that we must look at when determining the value of your construction accident claim. It’s not an easy answer, but the factors are, first and foremost, what are the extent of your injuries? How badly were you hurt? This goes to what parts of your body were injured. Was it your back? Was it your neck? Did you suffer some sort of traumatic brain injury? The second thing that’s very important is how and why did the accident happen. We need to figure out what steps went into place that allowed this accident to happen. In that, we need to see if the construction company or the construction manager had been involved in other prior accidents. For example, if they’ve had a prior situation that was very similar to your accident, then it greatly affects the value of the case.
Another thing to look at are the specific regulations that apply in the construction industry. For example, the Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specific regulations that apply to job sites. We must look at every single regulation that could have been violated. This is why it’s important to get a lawyer who is experienced in construction accidents. They can do an investigation to determine what applicable regulations there were and which ones were violated. From there, we can determine the value of the case.
Lastly, we want to know how much insurance does the construction company have. When you look at the totality of all these factors, the lawyer can advise you on what the value of your case is. If you have any questions, we are here to help.
