Lost a Limb in a Construction Accident?
Our Injury Lawyers Help You Fight for Compensation
The loss of a limb is a devastating experience, and no one can understand what that is like unless they have been affected by such a tragedy. Amputees must re-accustom themselves to everyday activities such as walking, eating, bathing and moving about their homes. An amputation as the result of a construction accident is emotionally draining and may require months or years to cope with such a loss. Often, these catastrophic injuries will prevent a person from maintaining a sufficient level of income and family support.
William McBride is on your side. He and the injury attorneys at McBride, Scicchitano & Leacox, P.A. are committed to fighting for justice and compensation on behalf of workers and families who suffered the loss of a limb. McBride watched his family suffer from injustice at a young age and decided to help others in similarly vulnerable situations. You have rights, and we will make sure that they are protected.
Construction Sites Require Strict Safety Standards and Thorough Training
Even if you make reasonable efforts to protect yourself, you can still suffer workplace injuries resulting in the loss of limbs if an employer or fellow worker acts in a negligent manner. Amputations can occur in the workplace during the operation of:
- Power presses
- Powered and non-powered conveyers
- Roll-forming machines
- Band saws
- Drill presses
- Milling machines
Injuries most commonly occur when an employer has failed to properly train workers, when employers force employees to work long hours under harsh conditions, or when machines are defective or lack adequate safety features. Routine operational activities such as set-up, threading, adjusting, cleaning and clearing jams often have the greatest potential to cause severe injuries that necessitate limb loss.
Who Caused My Construction Accident?
Multiple parties may be responsible for a victim’s injuries. Legal action may be possible against the equipment manufacturer, employer, safety inspector, shift supervisor and/or another employee who was operating the equipment that caused the accident.
Even if your amputation was not caused by a workplace accident, you still have the right to pursue justice under the law. Your injury attorney will fight for justice if you have been hurt due to:
- Automobile accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Drunk drivers
- SUV rollovers
- Tractor trailer accidents
- Airplane crashes
