An experienced construction death attorney, Michael Haggard shared the following insight for victims and families of victims who have suffered a construction accident:

"Although most people aren't aware, construction is one of the most dangerous professions in the entire country. This is often due to the risky nature of the job, though it can be exacerbated when many different employees are working simultaneously.

Worst of all, construction injuries tend to be very serious if not altogether deadly. Each year, countless construction employees become ill, are severely injured or even killed by falls, equipment malfunctions, falling objects, explosions, cave-ins, and more.

Employers are required by law to pay for worker's compensation policies that cover injuries suffered by employees. As a result, workers who suffer injuries have the right to file claims.

Through these claims, victims of injuries can receive a financial compensation. Unfortunately, insurance companies who are on the hook for paying out claims are notorious for making the process quite complex. They are also known for urging their employees, insurance adjusters, to find any and all reasons to reduce the payout amount or even deny it outright.

This is where a construction accident attorney comes in. These legal experts are versed in all the tactics used by insurance companies and know how to combat them, helping their clients achieve the full compensation they deserve. Moreover, a lawyer can determine if there is grounds for a lawsuit that, in tandem with a worker's comp claim, can help victims and their families receive complete benefits.

Individuals who suffered injuries in a construction accident should seek out an experienced attorney who will analyze their case, lay out the options, and then fight tirelessly for their client's rights until they are successful."
