Industrial Accident Lawyer in Montgomery Alabama
Assertive personal injury lawyer advocates for compensation for your on-the-job and industrial site accident
Injuries can happen at any place and time. The potential to suffer an injury while working in a dangerous field such as construction, energy, product manufacturing, or any job requiring physical labor, is significant. The severe and catastrophic injuries that result from manufacturing plants and construction sites usually require a higher level of medical care and carry greater out-of-pocket expenses. Chip Nix, Attorney at Law, represents workers injured in all types of on-the-job and industrial accidents. Rather than simply negotiate a quick settlement, we give special care and attention to your case all the way through to trial to ensure the compensation you receive adequately compensates you for your injuries.
Help with on-the-job injuries
Construction sites present a unique set of factors that contribute to injury. Similarly, those working in manufacturing plants and refineries utilize heavy equipment that requires specialized training for proper use. An industrial or construction accident often results in injuries more severe than from another type of accident. Brain injuries are common, as are the following types of personal injuries:
- Broken bones. Falls from high places, typical of a construction site, frequently include broken bones. Use of heavy machinery can result in crushed or severed limbs, as well as breaks and fractures.
- Spinal cord injuries. An injury resulting from product manufacturing equipment or from scaffolding on a construction site may be catastrophic, such as an injury to the spinal cord that causes paralysis. A spinal cord injury can also affect bladder control and other bodily functions, as well as feeling and movement.
- Electrocution and explosions. Faulty wiring and flammable liquids are a deadly combination. When not properly maintained and without adequate safety measures in place, electrocution or injuries from an explosion may occur.
- Death. In the most severe cases, an on-the-job accident at an industrial location can result in death.
Prompt investigation is necessary when accidents happen at work. An industrial injury attorney helps you make sure the steps needed to present your case favorably are taken. A preservation of the accident scene is vital so an accurate picture of the accident can be presented on your behalf. We return calls the same day received and make arrangements to visit you right away.
Know your options for industrial accidents
If you or a loved one is the victim of an accident at a construction or other industrial site, you need to preserve your right to make a claim. A skilled accident lawyer offers advice for both temporary and permanent compensation for injuries, much of which can be obtained under workers’ compensation.
Report your injury immediately to your employer and make sure they file a first report of injury . Then find a lawyer to represent you. There are many important steps that must be taken on your behalf including securing the accident site and any equipment, machinery, personal protective gear and other items for use later in the process. The fact that the statute of limitations is 2 years on such injuries is somewhat deceptive because in truth the time and the need for action by your lawyer is immediate, right after the injury occurs and proceeding forward.
