Get Dependable Advice From Your Construction Accident Lawyers In Aurora At Norton Law Offices!

Protecting Your Interests in Construction Accident Claims.

As one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States, construction work continues to account for a disproportionate number of lost-time injuries, serious or disabling injuries, and fatal accidents. If you have been hurt at a construction, demolition or remodeling job site, contact a knowledgeable construction accident lawyer in Denver at Norton Law Offices.

We serve the needs of workers in DenverBoulder and Colorado Springs.

As a general rule, employees injured on the job can’t sue their employers for negligence. Instead, they need to file claims under the workers’ compensation system to recover lost income and medical expenses.

If the negligence of someone other than your employer or a co-worker caused your accident, however, you’ll usually be able to make a claim against the responsible third party for personal injury damages, even if you’re collecting workers’ comp benefits after a construction accident.

Because most construction work is performed by independent contractors and subcontractors working on separate parts of a project, there’s an especially good chance that you’ll have the right to recover for personal injury damages based on the negligence of an unrelated third party.

As your construction accident lawyers we represent roofers, carpenters, electricians, heavy equipment operators, excavators, landscapers, general laborers and anyone else injured at a construction site. We also represent workers engaged in infrastructure development or highway improvement projects.

The key to a successful personal injury claim or lawsuit following a construction accident is to identify a defendant other than your employer, the developer or general contractor, or an employee of your company whose negligence contributed substantially to your injuries. The defendant might be another subcontractor, a homeowner, a materials supplier, a manufacturer, or even a negligent driver.

A successful personal injury claim or lawsuit depends on close attention to damages.

Because the amount of your recovery will depend on careful documentation of your damages claim, your construction accident lawyers in Denver work closely with medical, occupational and rehabilitative experts to prove every component of your damages claim in clear and convincing terms.

In cases involving severe burns, extensive back or brain injury, forklift accident injuries, or another disabling injury, we will need to show in detail just what your injuries mean to you and your family over a long period of time.

At Norton Law Offices, our attention to detail in the development and presentation of complex damages claims can make a significant difference in the outcome of your construction accident case. For a free consultation about your rights following a serious or fatal injury at a construction work-site, contact your construction accident lawyers in Denver!
