TOLEDO CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT EXPERTS
GET THE HELP YOU DESERVE AFTER A WORK RELATED INJURY WITH THE HELP FROM AN EXPERIENCED WORKERS COMP LAWYER
Without construction workers, our Toledo economy would crumble. In fact, the foundations of society–our bridges, roads, homes, businesses, parks, and more—would not exist. Construction workers are critical to our comfort and to the livelihood of the system in which we all live.
But for construction workers themselves, going to work means taking a big risk each and every day – construction workers are at a high risk of injury, and construction accidents leave numerous workers injured or killed every year. At the law offices of Groth & Associates, our Toledo construction accident lawyers can help you seek compensation if you have been harmed in a construction-related accident.
TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSE INJURIES & DEATHS
Construction accidents can be the result of a number of different factors, ranging from a contractor’s negligence to the mechanical failure of a piece of equipment to even adverse weather. Types of construction accidents that can lead to serious injuries include:
- Falling objects;
- Falls from heights;
- Slip and fall accidents;
- Motor vehicle accidents;
- Machinery or equipment malfunctions;
- Trench or building collapses;
- Electrical accidents;
- Improper use of equipment accidents; and
The list above is not inclusive. An accident can happen in an instant, leaving a worker–or someone nearby, such as a pedestrian passing by–severely harmed.
CONSTRUCTION SITE INJURIES
IF YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED IN A CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT AND ARE STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR RIGHTS ARE CALL GROTH & ASSOCIATES TODAY FOR YOUR CONSULTATION.
The accident types listed above can leave workers and those near the construction site at the time of the accident with a myriad of different injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that the four most common deadly accident and injury types are electrocution injuries, fall injuries, caught in/in-between machinery injuries, and struck by object injuries.
Some injuries that construction workers are at risk of include:
- Amputation injuries;
- Limb crush/loss of use of limb injuries;
- Back injuries;
- Soft tissue injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Internal injuries;
- Bone fracture injuries;
- Traumatic brain injuries; and
- Burn and electrocution injuries.
What Are My Options after a Toledo Construction Accident Injury?
Whether you are a construction worker or a passerby who is injured in a construction site accident in Toledo, the accident could leave you with a wide range of losses including medical bills, disability, lost wages, pain, suffering, and a diminished quality of life. Our lawyers believe that you deserve to be compensated for these losses.
If you were working at the time of your injury, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance system that allows you to recover benefits for medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages without having to prove fault (or be barred from recovery based on your own fault); however, it also bars you from filing a lawsuit directly against your employer.
Even if you have a workers’ compensation claim and cannot seek damages directly against your employer as such, however, you may also have a third-party liability claim. This is a type of civil suit that is brought against a negligent third party whose actions caused or contributed to your accident and injuries. For example, if your injuries were caused by a piece of defective machinery, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of that piece of machinery.
If you were just a passerby at the construction site at the time the accident and your injury occurred, you will not have a workers’ compensation case but can file a suit directly against the party responsible for your injury. Via a personal injury suit or third-party liability suit, you can seek compensation for the full value of your economic and noneconomic harm.
WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Our experience with Attorney Stevin Groth was nothing short of life changing.ALFRED & JENNIFER
When we first contacted Mr. Groth, he gave us his cell phone number and we were able to directly contact him day or night. His knowledge of the Ohio judicial system was astounding. He handled all aspects of our case himself, never once handing off our case to jr. associates. Stevin had positive relationships with all the judges, district attorneys and court personal that we came in contact with. Stevin’s persuasive arguments on our son’s behalf cleared him of all charges. Because of Stevin’s abilities, our son is able to move forward with his life without the stigma of a criminal record. We could not recommend Stevin Groth more highly.
