Legal Information and Counsel Regarding Dangerous and Defective Machinery and Equipment
When you are injured on a construction site because of defective or dangerous tools, you will likely be able to pursue compensation from one or more sources. Each source, however, will involve legal challenges. For instance:
- A Workers’ Compensation claim can involve the need to determine the extent and cause of your injuries, the length and severity of any disability and the financial worth of the claim.
- A third-party claim can lead to disputes regarding whether a third party’s negligence actually caused the injury, insurance coverage, extent of injuries, amount of loss and the value of the claim.
Attorneys Joseph S. Nierenberg and Steven J. Weber of the San Francisco law firm of Weber & Nierenberg have handled construction site accidents for 27 years and can provide the legal assistance you need following a serious accident or loss of a loved one.
If dangerous materials, a defective tool or a third-party contractor’s negligence led to a construction accident, we can investigate your case, and present your claim for Workers’ Compensation benefits or a lump-sum payment from an insurer. We work with accident reconstructionists and medical professionals and are experienced at obtaining compensation for lost wages and income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of consortium and a range of other types of loss.
If you have been injured at work from scaffolding, a ladder, heavy machinery, an hand-held tool or other equipment, don’t get information only from your employer. Consult with an attorney who has your interests and rights in mind. Contact Weber & Nierenberg by calling 1-866-288-6010.
