Heavy machinery, great heights, debris, and similar dangers make construction zones hot beds for accidents for both construction workers and people who find themselves in the area. These accidents can easily lead to life threatening injuries for anyone who ends up involved, and the medical bills for these injuries can be almost as devastating as the injury itself. Atlanta-area attorney Andrew Lynch has the experience and skill to have your back to make sure that your medical costs are covered by the people who forced them onto you, and will make sure that you are taken care of.
For someone working in construction, a serious injury in the construction zone means much more than just medical bills. A broken bone, or major cut can leave someone working in construction with no way to earn their living for several painful months. This is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) maintains a high standard of safety and holds every construction site to their rules. Despite this, accidents can still happen, and often due to negligence or carelessness. If you were injured due to carelessness by another worker in the construction zone, or because you were not provided with adequate safety equipment or procedures by your employer then you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, and for the wages you became unable to earn. However, construction companies are in the business of saving money, and will normally give you the least amount possible for your injuries. Without a skilled attorney by your side, getting your employer to compensate you for the injuries your received while working for them can be almost as painful and stressful as the injuries themselves.
Carelessness in a construction zone can impact more than just the people working there. Falling debris or poor warning markers, to name a few hazards, can severely injure people passing by or living near the site. Road construction can often cause dangerously narrow lanes or sharp pieces of debris to be in the road. Any of these examples can lead to life changing accidents that could have been easily avoided if those working in the construction zone were more careful, and you should not have to pay for the damage that their negligence has caused to you or a loved one. In these cases, the law is on your side.
