Construction accidents happen far too often and because injuries are typically severe, workers' compensation is seldom enough.
If you were injured on a construction site that was unsafe due to safety precautions and regulations not being followed or by equipment failure, you may have a liability claim in addition to any workers' compensation you are due.
My name is Jan Weinberg and I have been representing people injured in Hawaii for more than three decades. I am a skilled trial attorney who is known for my ability to maximize the recovery on behalf of my clients.
I encourage you to call me if you believe you have been the victim of:
- Scaffold collapse
- Trench collapse
- Heavy equipment accident
- Fall from a height with no tie-off
- Accident due to lack of warnings and barricades
- Faulty equipment or malfunctioning construction vehicles
- Negligence by general contractors, subcontractors or owners
I can provide you with an honest assessment of your case. Over my years, I have handled many construction injury cases and I know how to prepare a case to tell the true story of what happened.
Construction workers, plumbers, electricians and others who work on construction site projects do necessary jobs that require those in charge to ensure that all safety precautions are correctly implemented and carefully followed. Equipment must operate as it is intended and must be without manufacturing defects. When any of these elements fail, workers often pay the price. I work to hold those responsible accountable.
Understanding Personal Injury Claims For Injured Construction Workers
If you are working for a subcontractor and you are injured due to negligence, then the general owner and possibly third parties may be held liable for actual damages. These injury compensation damages are separate from and beyond workers' compensation. A personal injury lawsuit can involve damages that include not only your bodily injuries but also your pain and suffering. Depending on the specifics of your case and whether there is evidence of gross negligence you may also receive punitive damages.
Helping You Obtain The Injury Compensation You Deserve
If you or someone you care about has been injured on a construction site that was due to someone else's negligence, or if your injury is due to equipment failure, you may be due substantially more than just workers' compensation.
