Types of Legal Claims We Handle

In a construction accident, for example, safety precautions and measures may have been glossed over or skipped- creating a basis for a cause of action for negligence at the very least. Such a circumstance could cause a roofer to fall off the second story of a commercial building and sustain bodily injury and severe harm. He could, for example, sustain a broken bone, fracture, or break his back. It would be our job to make a successful case showing that the employer or property owner had a duty to require, inspect, manage, and utilize proper safety precautions and protocols to prevent such an incident from occurring in the first instance.

We would do so by first showing the individual harmed was 1) owed a duty by the third party, because he was rightfully on the premises performing contracted work and not trespassing. Then we would need to show and prove that the duty was broken and the failure to act by the defendant was the direct cause of harm to the plaintiff, causing physical and emotional injury or actual damages. In worse cases, where the individual harmed does not survive the accident or injury, a wrongful death claim may arise. In addition, those situations may lead to separate and new claims for damages for potential loss of consortium. This would apply if a spouse is limited in their capacity as a husband or wife, physically or emotionally, directly as a result of the original accident.
