Choosing a Construction Accident Attorney
A question we get a lot is, “How do I go about selecting the right attorney to help me with a construction site accident in Kansas?” There are several things to consider when choosing an attorney to help you. One, you want to make sure that you find an attorney whose core focus is handling these types of injury claims and handling construction site accident cases.
You also want to make sure you find an attorney who has experience in handling construction site accident cases and has been successful in handling those cases. There are a lot of different rules and regulations that apply to construction sites, and you want to make sure you have an attorney that understands those laws, as well as understands how to present your case to a jury.
Finally, you want to make sure that you find an attorney that is a trial attorney. A trial attorney is an attorney who will take your case to trial and try your case in front of a jury. Not all attorneys take cases to trial, and not all attorneys know how to try a case to a jury. You want to make sure that you find a trial attorney that can take your case to a jury.An attorney who will work your case up from the beginning with that in mind so that if you do have to present your case to a jury, they will know how to do that for you.
If you have any questions about selecting the right attorney for your construction site accident injury case or any other questions about your case, give us a call. We’d be happy to talk to you.
Mistakes To Avoid After a Construction Accident
In handling construction site accident cases, we often see a lot of common mistakes that people make. One is oftentimes people are injured at a construction site and they don’t even report the injury to the construction site manager or the property owner. It’s very important to make sure you report your injury immediately, before leaving the property, so that it can be documented that you have had an injury in the first place.
Another common mistake people make is that they talk to the construction site owner or the insurance company and give a statement. That is absolutely a mistake you do not want to make. Make sure that you get an attorney hired immediately that can help you with your claim and be involved in those discussions for you. Any information that you give to the insurance company early on can be used against you to hurt your case.
Finally, a lot of people unfortunately hire the wrong attorney. You want to make sure that you hire an attorney who understands construction site accident claims, who understands how to handle these types of cases and how to prepare the case for a jury trial if that’s necessary. If you have any questions about your construction site accident, just give us a call and we would be happy to talk to you about that.
Construction Accident Attorney Fees
One question we hear often is, “How much does it cost to hire an attorney for a construction site accident claim in Kansas?” We handle construction site accident claims on a contingency fee, meaning our fee is a percentage of whatever we recover for you. You don’t have to pay a retainer. You don’t have to pay any money upfront. You won’t get a bill from us as we are handling the case for you. We get paid when you get paid, and that will be a percentage of whatever we recover for you. If we don’t recover anything for you, you won’t pay anything. There’s no risk in reaching out to an attorney and hiring an attorney to help you with your construction site accident claim.
