Charlotte Construction Accident Attorneys

North Carolina Construction Injury Lawyers

Even in the best of circumstances, construction is dangerous work. When people on a construction site do not follow proper safety procedures, people can suffer catastrophic injuries. These injuries can keep you from earning a living and supporting your family. Even after you have recovered to the fullest possible extent, your injuries may keep you from performing certain tasks, both in your job and in other areas of your life. After such an injury, it is vital that you have an attorney who will take on those responsible for your injuries and can help you recover maximum compensation. The Charlotte law firm of Hefferon & Hefferon represents injured construction workers and others who have suffered disabling injuries in the workplace.

Taking Tough, Aggressive Action in Personal Injury and Workers’ Comp Cases

Workers’ compensation is generally available for people who have been injured in construction accidents. Workers’ compensation, however, only accounts for your medical expenses and a portion of your lost income. If your employer was solely responsible for your injuries, you are limited to workers’ compensation. If someone other than your employer was responsible, you can file what is known as a third-party claim. For instance, if a subcontractor, a vendor or a defective product was responsible for your injuries, you can bring a claim for all of your damages. Hefferon & Hefferon represents clients in both workers’ compensation and third-party claims.
