Even with safe and responsible employees, working at a construction site remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Construction workers account for nearly 20% of all fatal on-the-job accidents each year. Even when taking all of the appropriate precautions, wearing proper safety equipment, and obeying all of the safety protocols on the site, you may still be at risk of an accident due to the absence or negligence of safety engineers and programs. If you have been involved in an on-the-job accident, it is imperative that you contact a construction accident lawyer in Indianapolis, IN immediately to protect your rights.

Construction Site Accident Representation
Construction site accident cases tend to be very complex proceedings, and may involve more than one responsible party. With multiple companies, owners, architects, contractors, subcontractors, and managers at a worksite, all with their own insurance companies, a simple case can easily become exceedingly complicated. A successful case against so many liable parties involves much more than just filing a claim. Our worker's rights attorneys will work with you to ensure that your best interests are represented so you can receive the maximum benefits.
Protection against Loss of Income
Following any type of construction accident, Indiana law limits the benefits that can be awarded. Once your work injury claim has been approved by your employer's insurance carrier, you will be eligible to receive two-thirds of your average weekly wage for the entire period that you are ordered not to work by an authorized physician. Additionally, you may be eligible for payment for impairment or disability, as well as reimbursement for medical expenses and mileage if you are required to travel to see the insurance company's authorized physicians. Our attorneys will ensure that you receive everything for which you are eligible, and prove the full extent of your potential losses, thus maximizing your recovery.
