Were You Injured in a Construction Equipment Accident?
Contact an Atlanta attorney at the law offices of Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, PC, to schedule a free initial consultation after a construction accident involving heavy machinery that has left you or your close family member seriously injured — or left family members to carry on after the death of your loved one.
As former insurance defense attorneys in the personal injury field, we are well acquainted with the many causes and circumstances behind construction accidents involving heavy machinery. Every accident is unique, and it is important to conduct a thorough investigation. Sometimes human error by an operator of the machinery is to blame. In other cases, the heavy machinery accident is the result of machine failure or malfunction — or lack of guard rails to protect humans using the heavy machines.
A construction accident may also involve a workers' compensation claim. Our law firm collaborates with lawyers who focus on workers' comp claims while we investigate to determine whether there was any third-party liability. A piece of heavy machinery such as a crane that was defective may have been the cause of injury. In this case, a third-party liability claim against the manufacturer will provide hope of much greater financial relief for the victim and his or her family than what workers' compensation has to offer.
