A crane accident can be fatal. If not fatal, the injuries can be very serious. Because many of these accidents occur to employees working for the construction company, the employees or their families may be able to file for benefits through workers’ comp. However, a third party that is responsible for the accident can be pursued for monetary compensation to cover the cost of damages.
According to Baizlaw.com, in cases where the individual is not an employee of the construction company, they may be an employee of a third party working on the site or someone just passing by. Unfortunately, crane accidents can occur at any time and anyone in the vicinity can be injured. When you are the injured person or the family member of someone who was injured or killed, you may be wondering what you can do now. The first step is to call your Southern Minnesota personal injury attorney so work can immediately begin on your personal injury case.
Compassionate And Understanding Attorneys
When you work with our personal injury attorneys, you will find that they are understanding of your situation and compassionate. They know that the injuries sustained or the loss of a loved one is serious, emotional, and costly. There are a number of expenses that come about when a person is injured in a crane accident. Those expenses include:
- Medical costs, such as medication costs, hospital bills, rehabilitation costs, and surgery expenses
- Loss of health and other benefits due to being unable to work
- Lost wages due to being unable to work
- Costs for childcare when unable to care for children because of the injuries
Accident victims can also obtain compensation for their pain and suffering. At Farrish Johnson Law Office, we will file your claim and pursue the compensation that you need to move forward with your recovery and your life.
Aggressive & Strategic Representation
One of the aspects of recovering compensation is negotiation. Insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying a settlement or paying a person what they should be paid. Presenting the facts and showing what kind of settlement is needed can make a considerable difference in the amount that is offered. If the insurance company doesn’t offer enough to cover all of the applicable costs, then compensation can be sought through a jury trial. You can expect your Mankato personal injury attorney to fight for you and fight hard so you can have the compensation that you deserve.
