Holding Contractors & Product Manufacturers Accountable For Construction Site Accidents
Construction site accident claims are often complex and challenging. Work sites are busy and fast-changing environments, with projects being routinely driven by acute time pressures and constraints. Simply identifying the party or parties responsible for an accident, other than the injured worker’s employer or co-worker, can be a daunting task. What personnel were at the scene when the accident occurred? What equipment was involved? Were there witnesses? Time is of the essence in identifying and securing evidence. An attorney with in-depth knowledge of both personal injury and workers’ compensation laws can identify all material issues and proceed quickly to safeguard the rights and interests of a personal injury client.
The attorneys at The Walthew Law Firm in Seattle bring decades of relevant experience to that task, coupled with an unrelenting focus on obtaining the best possible results in every client matter.

Seattle Third-Party Liability Attorneys Identifying All of the Responsible Parties to Maximize Compensation
Although a quick settlement with an insurance company can sometimes seem to be a good option, it seldom results in an outcome that even remotely reflects an injured party’s best interests under the law. An insurer’s best interest logically dictates that it will seek to pay a claimant as little as it can. Conversely, The Walthew Law Firm attorneys will seek to recover client compensation to the fullest extent provided for under the law, from every party that contributed to a personal injury accident. Even though an employer or co-worker cannot legally be held accountable for a construction site accident, for example, other parties may have acted in a negligent manner.
The first step will be to identify that individual or company responsible for the construction site accident. That could include contractors, subcontractors, a product manufacturer, rental company or other individual or business. With the complexity of construction site accident law and the general inability to sue the employer directly, many injured employees assume that they have no options for recovery. It is of vital importance to contact an attorney as soon as possible after your injury. You have options. You have rights.
