The Legal Process of Construction Accident Cases in Little Rock

The legal process for a construction accident claim begins with an initial consultation. Your lawyer will collect general information about the accident and launch and complete a thorough investigation to collect evidence. 

We will carefully review your medical records, witness testimony, accident scene photos, violation of safety regulations, and anything else affecting your case. This information will help your lawyer construct a solid case to help you secure a favorable outcome.

We will identify the at-fault parties, determine the potential claims, file the necessary paperwork, negotiate settlement offers, and represent you in court and administrative hearings if necessary. 

Under Arkansas law, you have three years to file a personal injury claim. You only have two years to file a workers’ compensation claim. Therefore, acting promptly is essential. After you receive medical attention for your injuries, contact a lawyer as soon as possible. 

Understanding Construction Accidents

A construction accident is any mishap or incident on a construction site that results in injury, property damage, or fatalities. Accidents can involve equipment use, lack of safety measures, and exposure to hazards. 

Some frequent types of construction accidents include the following: 

  • Falls from heights
  • Slips, trips, or falls
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Mishandled or malfunctioning equipment
  • Explosions
  • Burns
  • Electrocutions
  • Falling objects or collapsed scaffolding
  • Crane collapses
  • Injuries from being caught between objects or pinned by them
  • Repetitive motion injuries

Common injuries associated with construction accidents include the following:

  • Electrocution
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Eye injuries, including blindness
  • Broken bones
  • Crush injuries
  • Burns 
  • Chemical exposure illness 

Given the potential for severe injuries and fatalities, adhering to workplace safety protocol and accident prevention is crucial. 

Rights and Responsibilities of Construction Workers in Little Rock

Arkansas Occupational Safety and Health requires employers to report injuries that occur on the job. Additionally, federal law requires all employers to report all job fatalities, work-related hospitalizations, amputations, or loss of an eye to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Workplace conditions must meet worker safety requirements and comply with industry-specific safety regulations. Unfortunately, despite these rules and regulations, accidents happen. 

In most cases, an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance covers injuries that construction workers sustain. Arkansas law requires all employers with three or more employees to carry workers’ compensation insurance to protect their workers. 

However, when your injuries stem from another’s negligence, you might have grounds for a personal injury case. 

Seeking Compensation for Construction Accidents

Your options for seeking compensation for your injuries depend on who is responsible for your accident. The following parties are those commonly responsible for construction accidents: 

  • Employers
  • Drivers of motor vehicles 
  • Defective product manufacturers 
  • Contractors 
  • Mechanics 
  • Premises owners 

Little Rock Workers’ Compensation

If your employer caused your injuries, you generally cannot file a lawsuit. Instead, you may have grounds to file a workers’ compensation claim. 

If you file a workers’ compensation claim against your employer, you can typically pursue medical benefits and payment toward your lost wages. You may also be entitled to permanent partial disability benefits if you suffer a permanent impairment to your body. 

Workers’ Compensation is a no-fault system, meaning you do not have to prove that your injury resulted from someone’s negligence. You just have to show that you were injured through the course and scope of employment. However, you are generally not entitled to pain and suffering and other non-economic damages. 

Third-Party Lawsuits

If someone other than your employer caused or contributed to your injuries, you may be able to file a lawsuit against them. Victims injured in construction accidents can recover various types of compensation in a third-party lawsuit, including the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress

Securing fair compensation from insurance companies and employers can be a challenge. They often try to settle for an amount far lower than what is fair to the victim and their family. 

Hiring a skilled construction accident attorney is crucial, as they can help you secure a fair compensation amount by leveraging the evidence they find in your favor. They’ll use any evidence pertinent to your case to strengthen it, including security footage, maintenance records, dashcam footage, witness statements, and medical records. 

At NST Law, our team of Little Rock construction accident lawyers has extensive experience in successfully dealing with insurance companies and can help you secure the compensation you deserve.
