Accidents at construction sites can, and oftentimes do, result in significant injuries. Each year people are injured at construction sites in and around the Tulsa area, sometimes due to the negligence of someone else or the construction company. When it comes to these types of injuries, you need to understand a few essential elements of the law surrounding construction accidents as well as the importance of hiring an experienced Tulsa construction accident attorney.
If you’ve been injured as a result of a construction accident you are typically entitled to a variety of different types of compensation. For example, anyone injured in a construction accident will face mounting medical bills, which they are entitled to compensation. This includes current or existing medical expenses, as well as medical bills reasonably expected to be incurred in the future.
A construction accident attorney will also help an injured person receive compensation for lost wages. In the aftermath of an accident, you are likely to be off work and therefore lose income. And you may even end up earning less money because of injuries or disabilities into the future. If your injuries leave you out of work and unable to make money you are entitled to compensation for these future lost wages as well.
Pain and suffering represents another area in which you may be entitled to compensation. As is the case with other types of compensation, you may be entitled to compensation for both current pain and suffering and for pain and suffering reasonably expected to be incurred in the future.
