Gulf Coast Region Construction Accidents Attorney
Construction accidents can happen in a variety of settings and circumstances. One commonality that construction accidents seem to possess is that they are generally determined to have been preventable. It is not unusual to learn that a construction accident was the result of negligence on the part of a subcontractor, an equipment manufacturer or managers guilty of violations of OSHA-mandated safety regulations.
If you or a family member has been injured in a construction accident in Mississippi, you are strongly encouraged to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. At the Mississippi law office of James K. Wetzel, P.A., we believe in the jury system ― an integral part of our legal system. We prepare every case as if it were going to trial, and always fight to obtain a fair outcome for our clients.
The sooner your attorney has the opportunity to investigate the scene of the construction accident, the more likely it is that critical evidence will be preserved. Such evidence can include:
- Photos of the scene where the injury occurred
- Testimony from eye witnesses who recently witnessed the accident
- Paperwork and equipment that may reveal key information about the nature of the negligence
- Evidence at scene of accident
Your construction accident may have involved one or more of the following:
- Home building
- Bridge construction
- Road construction
- Commercial development
- A roof fall
- A welding accident
- Scaffolding fall
- Ladder fall
- Defective machinery
- Safety violations causing injury
- Accidents resulting from failure to provide safety railing or guard railing
As an injured employee, you are very likely qualified to receive Workers' Compensation benefits. James K. Wetzel & Associates, P.A., is prepared to help you file a timely claim to ensure that you get the benefits you are entitled to, as soon as you are entitled to it.
It is also important to investigate the cause of the accident to determine whether any person or organization such as a manufacturing company is responsible for your injury. Was the accident a result of the company's failure to properly train people using tools and machinery? If someone else's negligence caused your spinal cord injury or brain injury at a construction site, we may be able to bring a claim against the manufacturer, subcontractor or other party other than your employer who may have been at fault.
