Back to School: Who’s Liable for a School Bus Accident?
With any type of employment there is always a risk of injury, but when it involves a construction site the risk is greatly increased due to the inherent dangers in the construction business. It is an overall hazardous situation and even if you take as many personal precautions as possible, an accident may occur because of the carelessness of others. Although it is the responsibility of those in charge of the construction project to ensure all safety procedures are in place it has been found that negligence still happens, often with horrendous results. It can take just one moment of inattention or careless behavior by another to find you are seriously injured due to a slip and fall accident, electrocution, injuries due to heavy equipment accidents, or toxic material spills. The aftermath of these incidents often involves expensive medical bills, long periods of recovery, and loss of wages or the ability to ply your trade. If this has been the case, it is strongly advised that you take action to protect the legal rights for you and your family and consult with a Denver accident attorney from Anderson Hemmat personal injury law firm.
In construction accident injury cases, Workers' Compensation usually provides the needed compensation for damages. Even this state mandated compensation can fail to cover the actual costs of the injury accident. As with any government agency, it is necessary to file the personal injury claims correctly with full documentation and failing to do so can lead to a denial of valid claims. In many cases, a third party may be liable, such as in equipment failures, explosions or other incidents, and this should be fully evaluated by our legal team in order to determine all liable parties in the incident.

Injuries from a construction accident can range from severe burns, head and back injuries to a tragic loss of life. It all depends on the conditions in which you were working and the job that was being performed at the time. Survivors of such injuries will often be dealing with the repercussions for months, or even years. Severe injuries take many medical appointments and even ongoing physical therapy. It may be a long time before you can work in construction again, if you are able to at all. Even then, you may not be able to perform the same work that was within your ability before the accident. At Anderson Hemmat we understand that such devastating accidents could have been prevented if proper care and attention was taken in providing the necessary safety precautions. The person or people responsible for the safety conditions of your work site should be held responsible for the neglect that resulted in your pain and suffering. Let us help you by determining who is responsible and how much they should contribute to your physical and financial recovery.

Let us help you answer the tough questions you may have about your case. If you don't find what you're looking for you can ask your question here any time.
Typically, a personal injury accident case will go to trial when a settlement agreement cannot be reached outside of courts. If the defendant in the personal injury case is refusing to offer a settlement that accurately reflects the extent of damages, then a trial might be the only option to secure maximum financial compensation.
The best way to know whether or not you should accept a personal injury settlement is to consult with an accident lawyer you trust. Insurance companies try to get claimants to settle quickly before they know how much they actually could get for their accident. Consider having your personal injury case evaluated by a Denver accident attorney from our law firm.
Anderson Hemmat operates on a contingency fee basis. This is a "no recovery, no fee" guarantee which basically states that you do not owe us attorney fees until we obtain a verdict or settlement for you. To learn more about payment options, please call our experienced accident attorneys directly.
While it is not mandatory that you have legal representation for a personal injury case, it can be extremely beneficial. Many people are cut short of the financial compensation because they were not aware of how much they actually deserved for their extensive accident.
Many people do not go to the hospital after car accidents either because they think they are not injured or they fear they will have to pay out of pocket for the visit. Truthfully, many car accident injuries can go undetected and may not begin to bother the victim until days or even weeks after the accident. As a precaution, anyone involved in a moderate to serious car accident should go to the hospital for a physical evaluation. Most likely, this visit will be covered by insurance. Just be sure to keep record of the visit and the payment for the visit.
It can be difficult for a driver to know how much they're entitled to after a car accident. Many drivers accept the insurance company's first settlement offer because they trust that it's fair and will be enough to cover all accident-related expenses. This is not always the case. We encourage drivers to consult with a car accident attorney after a collision for a second opinion on how much your claim is worth. More often than not, insurance companies offer claimants far less than they actually deserve.
Colorado has comparative/contributory negligence laws. This means that even drivers who are partially at fault for accidents can recover compensation from insurance. However, this does not apply to drivers who are more than 50 percent at fault for the collision. For example, if the insurance adjusters decided that you were 20 percent at-fault and the other driver was 80 percent at-fault, then you could collect up to 80 percent from the other driver's insurance.
