What to Look for When Hiring a Construction Accident Attorney
While many attorneys advertise that they handle construction accidents, few lawyers have devoted a significant portion of their practice to construction accident cases, making them well experienced and equipped to handle the complex issues that arise in such cases. The personal injury and construction accident attorneys at Whiting Law Group have had great success handling construction accident lawsuits on behalf of injured workers and visitors to job sites. Due to our extensive experience, we are pleased to offer guidance on hiring a construction accident attorney.
Construction Accident Law Is Complicated
Construction cases are complicated. Hiring an experienced attorney that understands the relationship between owners, general contractors, construction managers, subcontractors, and independent contractors is critical.
Identifying all the at-fault parties and available insurance ensures that victims of construction accidents get all the compensation available to them. If an attorney does not understand these issues a victim may end up settling for less than their full case value.
