Construction and Workplace Accidents

Construction and Workplace Accidents

Similar to fast moving vehicles on the roadway, there are a lot of hazards in construction zones and workplaces. When someone acts careless in the construction zone, there is a good chance that serious injury or death will occur. You likely never thought that you would be injured at work because you followed all the safety rules and did everything you could to be safe. Unfortunately, you can’t control what other people are doing on the job site. The poor, unsafe decisions of others can get you injured, and you may need an attorney to protect you.

Unlike traffic rules, it is not always clear what the safety rules are in a construction zone. That’s where we come in. At Jensen Law, we know the rules that govern your particular construction or workplace accident. We can help highlight these rules and show how the responsible person broke those rules and caused your injury.

We realize that the personal injury claim is only one piece of the puzzle. If you are receiving workers compensation benefits, we can help coordinate treatment and ensure that your health doesn’t take a back seat. Our goal is to make sure you get compensated from the responsible person and that you receive all the benefits you’re entitled to under your past or current employment.

Unfortunately, your injuries may have ended your career and your ability to transition to a new type of career. We understand that this is a scary, depressing place to be. That’s why we work closely with vocational rehabilitationists, lifecare planners, economists, and medical experts who calculate your lost wages, cost of future medical treatment, and the overall financial and medical impact on your life and the life of your family. If you have special training, education, or skills to transition to a new career, we direct you to vocational rehabilitation, where your emotional, mental, physical, or other barriers to working are removed as much as possible. The goal is to have you consider all your options and to get you back in the workforce.
