Workplace Accident Lawyers in Fayetteville, West Virginia
Legal Help for Construction Accidents and Other On-the-Job Injuries
Those who are injured at work often assume that workers’ compensation is the only remedy available. While that may be true in some situations, many injured workers are able to obtain compensation above and beyond workers’ comp by filing a personal injury lawsuit. The best way to find out if this is an option in your case is by speaking with a trusted attorney.
The Fayetteville workplace accident attorneys of Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard, P.L.L.C.., have decades of experience helping injured clients get the compensation they deserve. Serving all of West Virginia, we are passionate advocates for those who get hurt on the job, whether they work in coal mines or in office buildings.
Our lawyers will sit down with you and listen to what happened. Then, we will give you an honest assessment of the situation — if workers’ comp is your sole option, we’ll tell you. If it appears that you have a valid personal injury claim, we will help you pursue it.
Claims against an Employer
Usually employers are immune from lawsuits if they cover their employees through workers compensation. However, if an employer is guilty of what the law calls “deliberate intent,” it may be liable for damages over and above what workers comp paid.
These cases are difficult to pursue, but the workplace attorneys at Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard, P.L.L.C.., have handled many such claims.If you believe your workplace injury was the result of intentional actions by your employer, call us today.
Understanding Third-Party Injury Claims
If your injury was the result of the actions of a third party — such as the maker of a defective tool or someone other than a co-worker working on the job site — then you may have the right to more compensation than workers’ comp offers. These are called third-party claims, and our Fayetteville lawyers have extensive experience handling them.
We encourage you to get in touch with our firm for a case evaluation if your work accident involved:
- Defective scaffolding, power tools or other construction equipment
- An auto accident that occurred while driving for your employer
- Accidents in coal mines or in Marcellus Shale fracking or other drilling operations
