Do I Need a Fall Lawyer?
When you’ve been injured in a construction fall accident, you begin to wonder how you’ll be able to pay your medical bills, especially if you miss time from work and lose out on income. You may also wonder who, if anyone, is responsible for your injuries and whether you’ll need to hire an attorney to pursue your claim.
If you are the victim of a construction fall, you may be legally entitled to compensation for expenses you’ve incurred through no fault of your own, such as hospital bills, medication, physical therapy, and lost wages. But, you’re less likely to recover the full compensation you deserve without an experienced construction fall attorney to represent you.

Types of Cases We Handle
Falls at construction sites are some of the most common injuries. Workers and persons at construction sites are at risk from falling from all kinds of exposed heights found at construction sites, such as:
Falls can be caused by shoddy construction, inadequate safety equipment or training, negligence or dangerous actions of other persons at the construction site, or defective products.
Compensation in Fall Cases
Claims of personal injury from a fall can result in compensation that generally falls into four general categories:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
In addition, depending on your employment status and the circumstances of your fall, you may also or only be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, which will pay for medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages. However, workers’ compensation benefits may limit your ability to seek further damages. The attorneys from Adams Law Firm can explain what kinds of compensation you may be entitled to.
Who is legally responsible?
At many construction sites, there are multiple parties involved – the property owner, the developer, the general contractors, and often many subcontractors. The specific circumstances of your fall are critical to determining who is responsible for your compensation. If you are employed on the construction site, your employer may be responsible for paying you workers’ compensation. Except in extreme circumstances, if you file for workers’ compensation, you will be unable to pursue a lawsuit against your employer. However, you may also be entitled to pursue third party claims for further compensation, including pain and suffering. Our experienced fall attorneys can investigate your case and determine the parties responsible for your fall. We’ll also work to uncover all the available insurance – many companies have multiple layers of insurance coverage, and we’ll vigorously pursue the maximum amount of coverage.
Should I accept the settlement offer the insurance company gives me?
Never accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first speaking with an experienced attorney. Companies are relying on the fact that you need money now to cover your medical expenses and lost wages to offer less than the total amount of compensation you’re entitled to. And because many companies have several layers of insurance coverage, they may try to misrepresent their offer as the total amount of coverage when there may be much more available.
How long will it take to resolve my claim?
If you are eligible for workers’ compensation and your employer accept responsibility, it may only be a matter of a few weeks to start receiving benefits. However, if your employer denies responsibility, or workers’ compensation is unavailable, you may need to pursue a legal claim to receive the compensation you deserve. Sometimes the responsible party immediately accepts liability for your accident, in which case your claim may be resolved quickly. But we never accept the first settlement offer without first confirming what insurance coverage is available and what your past and future expenses may be. If necessary, we are willing to take your claim to trial, and will work to resolve your claim as quickly as the civil trial system allows.
