Greensboro Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction Accident Lawyers in Greensboro, North Carolina

Our Greensboro construction accident lawyers can help you get maximum compensation for your injuries.

Construction sites can turn dangerous in a split second when something doesn’t go according to plan. Even though all construction companies are required to follow Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety guidelines, these rules are sometimes neglected, leading to more dangerous work sites.

In 2021 alone, nearly 70,000 construction site injuries occurred in North Carolina. Unfortunately, 197 jobsite accidents resulted in death.

Even when the rules are followed, machinery can malfunction and accidents can occur. If you were injured while working on a construction site, you may be able to collect damages through a workers’ compensation claim. 

If you were injured on the job, our Greensboro construction accident lawyers and workers’ compensation lawyers are ready to help. We will work with you to ensure that you are able to recover the compensation you deserve.

For a FREE, no-obligation consultation, call us today at 1-800-525-7111. One of our experienced Greensboro construction accident attorneys will speak with you and review your claim.

You won’t pay any attorney fees unless we win your case and you receive compensation for your injuries.

“Can I Collect Workers’ Comp for My Construction Accident Injury?”

In North Carolina, the Workers’ Compensation Act requires all businesses with three or more employees to have workers’ compensation insurance. In general, this allows you to recover compensation quickly if you were hurt on the job, but it can also limit the damages owed, especially if the employer was at fault.

An experienced Greensboro construction accident lawyer can help navigate more complex claims, determine fault, and map out a course of action. Riddle & Brantley’s attorneys are ready to help and have experience representing clients in a wide variety of construction site cases, including:

  • Warehouse accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Crush injuries
  • Hearing loss
  • Eye injuries
  • Broken bones and joints
  • Willful misconduct by employers

Regardless of who was at fault for your injury, if you were hurt on the job you may qualify for workers’ compensation. Call 1-800-525-7111 today to speak with one of our construction accident lawyers in Greensboro, NC about your claim.

You aren’t required to hire a lawyer to collect workers’ compensation, but having an experienced attorney on your side can help ensure you receive everything you deserve after a workplace accident.

What Does Workers’ Compensation Pay For?

Following a jobsite accident, workers’ compensation can help pay for any costs you incur as a result of your injuries. This includes medical expenses as well as lost wages and other ongoing costs if your injuries persist. Workers’ compensation benefits can include:

  • Medical care and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Disability benefits
  • Death benefits
  • Other costs you incur as a result of your injuries

Riddle & Brantley lawyers have a proven track record of success helping clients with workers’ compensation claims. In one case, our construction injury attorneys helped an individual win a $2.75 million settlement after he was struck by a tractor-trailer in a work zone (see disclaimer below).

If your injury leads to long-term disability, our Greensboro Social Security disability lawyers are also ready to help with ongoing benefit claims and appeals.

In the most tragic of cases, if you have a loved one who died as a result of a construction accident, our wrongful death lawyers can help you fight for justice.

Statute of Limitations on Workers’ Comp Claims in NC

If you were injured on the job, it is important to file your claim in a timely manner. In North Carolina, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a workers’ compensation claim.

IMPORTANT: If you wait more than two years after your injury, even if it’s two years and one day, your case will be automatically dismissed.

“How Can a Greensboro Construction Accident Lawyer Help?” 

Workers’ compensation claims and insurance company offers can be difficult to negotiate. It is important to have a good idea of what you are owed, because insurance companies will often offer less compensation than you may deserve.

From helping you file required paperwork in a timely manner to gathering evidence and negotiating on your behalf, an experienced construction accident attorney will help ensure that you receive the full amount of compensation you deserve. Additionally, Riddle & Brantley’s Greensboro construction accident attorneys can help identify other opportunities.

Construction sites are busy and crowded places, often involving multiple companies working in and around one another. Following your injury, you may not have a clear idea of what happened or who was at fault.

In any of these scenarios, experienced construction accident and workers’ compensation attorneys will help sort out the details and ensure that you are positioned to recover the full compensation you deserve.
