Oregon construction accident lawyers specialize in situations that don’t fall under the jurisdiction of worker’s comp. These often result in serious injury just like regular on-the-job accidents. Fatal work injuries involving contractors accounted for 17 percent of all fatal work injuries in the US in 2014.
In these circumstances, it’s exceedingly important to get an accident lawyer on your side early on. Peterson Law Offices is the Gresham, Oregon firm that specializes in all types of personal injury law.
How can a construction accident lawyer help?
We take on construction accident cases all over the state of Oregon and even in the southern part of Washington. We will often visit a victim in the hospital or at home, if necessary. We are even able to work with many of our clients solely through the mail.
At Peterson Law Offices, we don’t get paid unless you recover money from the insurance company involved. That means there is nothing to lose and much to gain by getting a Peterson lawyer on your side immediately after an accident.
We will inform you of issues to be careful about, such as getting a medical provider to document and treat your injuries with something other than pain medication. While it may take care of immediate pain from your injuries, keep in mind that prolonged use of pain medication is no way to move on with one’s life.
You want to be certain that you are pain free without the medication in the days and weeks following an accident.
The insurance company, on the other hand, often wants to do everything it can not to stick around after your accident. They prefer to settle quickly, before you can realize any lingering headaches, back pain, neck pain, or shoulder pain.
