What is the first step in filing a construction accident claim?
First, you should talk to a Vermont and New Hampshire construction accident lawyer with many years of experience handling these claims. The legal team at Cullenberg & Tensen, P.L.L.C. offers free consultations to discuss your accident and the plausibility of a lawsuit. How can I make a difference in the outcome of my construction accident case?
Our attorneys will spearhead a full investigation and collect all of the important details regarding your accident and injuries. You can help us build a solid case by providing us with crucial information about the accident. We will ask you to give us a step-by-step account of what happened, as well as provide contact information for witnesses, your employer, and the physicians involved in treating the construction-related injuries. It also helps if photographs were taken of both the accident scene and your injuries.
What types of construction injury cases do you handle?
Cullenberg & Tensen has helped many North Country families receive workers' compensation benefits for injuries sustained on construction sites. We have also helped injured victims receive compensation from negligent parties when unsafe work conditions and defective or poorly maintained equipment contributed to the accident.
What is OSHA and how does it impact construction accident lawsuits?
OSHA, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is the governing organization that enacts and mandates safety standards in the workplace. During our investigation of your accident, we will attempt to discover if an employer or third party disregarded OSHA standards.
How soon can I get compensation for my construction injuries?
Each client's situation is unique. If you are filing a workers' compensation claim, you must get approval for your claim by your employer's insurance company. This can often take time. If you are filing a construction accident lawsuit, the timeline for recovery will depend on whether or not we can reach a settlement before your case goes to trial.
