Construction Accidents Can Be Complex Legal Matters
Negligence on the part of construction companies and third-party contractors operating in a work area, are financially liable for injuries they cause through negligence and safety violations. While workers’ compensation may cover part of your medical expenses and lost wages, if your injuries are more serious, it may be necessary to pursue damages proportional to your total medical costs and pain and suffering.
At the Nichols Law Firm, we pursue damages against third parties responsible for causing accidents and injuries involving injured electricians, carpenters, roofers, plumbers and other construction workers. We also represent construction workers in cases where Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations or gross negligence on the part of an employer results in serious injuries or fatalities.
Our office works with safety experts, occupational hazard experts, medical professionals and investigators in determining how an accident happened and the scope and nature of the injuries involved.
Your injuries may result in long-term disability, exhausting whatever benefits you are eligible to receive through workers’ compensation. We have the experience and knowledge needed to help you recover compensation proportional to your injuries.
Know Your Rights Regarding Work Injuries
Did you know that if you receive workers’ compensation benefits for injuries caused by someone outside of your work place, your workers’ compensation insurance may seek to be paid back for the benefits they provided? At Nichols Law Firm we are experienced in handling third-party claims and making sure that you receive and keep a just amount of compensation for your injuries. We literally wrote the book on how to protect your settlement proceeds.

We Hold Negligent Third Parties Accountable
Even if you are eligible to receive workers’ compensation in an accident involving a third party, your injuries may involve short-term or long-term disability. In order to ensure our clients receive compensation proportional to their injuries, our office consults medical economists and life care planners who can accurately quantify the costs involved. In cases involving serious injuries, recovering damages from the third party responsible for causing an accident could mean the difference between securing your financial needs and being faced with mounting medical costs and lost earnings.
