Fighting For Construction Accident Victims in New Mexico

Michael J. Doyle, Attorney at Law, understands that the construction crews of today can be placed in constant danger while on-the-job, especially when safety teams and supervisors fail to perform their duties. People who go to work in a hard hat area should not have to worry about what will become of their finances and future if they get injured. Our Valencia County workers’ compensation lawyer is ready to fight for the rights of the wrongfully injured employee, no matter the complexity of the case or the source of the injury.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

We can handle cases involving construction accident injuries, like:

  • Falls from heights: Working at elevated heights, like on scaffolding or ladders, poses a significant risk of falls, which can result in very serious injuries or even death.
  • Struck by falling objects: Tools, materials, or debris falling from above can strike workers below, causing head injuries, fractures, or other serious injuries.
  • Hit by moving equipment: Malfunctioning or improperly used machinery and equipment can cause accidents, leading to crush injuries, amputations, or other severe injuries.
  • Electrocution (jobsite electricians): Construction sites often involve working near power lines or with electrical equipment, increasing the risk of electrocution accidents.

There really is no such thing as a “minor construction accident,” as any sort of injury can rapidly become debilitating. If nothing is done in time, or the treatments are not given at all, an injured worker can be left in a condition that prevents them from working, further damaging their situation and livelihood.

Common Injuries in Construction Accidents

Injuries that stem from construction accidents may be:

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Construction Accident Claim?

If you have been injured in a construction accident due to the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to recover various damages through a personal injury claim. These damages could include the following:

  • Medical expenses: Compensation for previous and future medical treatment related to your injuries, including hospital expenses, surgeries, medications, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost wages: Reimbursement for earnings lost because of missed work while recovering from your injuries, as well as potential future lost earnings if your injuries prevent you from returning to work or earning the same income as before.
  • Pain and suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional despair, and diminished quality of life resulting from your injuries.
  • Disability or disfigurement: Additional compensation for permanent disabilities or disfigurement caused by the construction accident, which can affect your capability to work and enjoy life as you did before the accident.
  • Property damage: Reimbursement for any harm to your personal property, such as clothing or tools, that occurred during the construction accident.
  • Wrongful death: If a loved one was killed in a construction accident, surviving family members may seek compensation for burial costs, loss of financial aid, and the emotional trauma of losing a loved one.

Why You Need a Workers’ Comp Lawyer for Your Case

Employers and parent companies are not keen to take the blame for anything bad that happens at their worksites. When a member of the construction staff is injured, they could try to find a way to peg the blame on them. This pits a single person against the power and strength of an entire corporation, an unbalanced legal situation, indeed.

In a best case scenario, your employer will accept responsibility and offer you some form of workers’ compensation benefits. But you still need to be careful. Oftentimes, you will be offered the bare minimum that they could legally present, and it might not be close to enough to pay for your medical bills and lost wages. Do not accept an offer until you let a professional personal injury attorney review it first.
