Toledo OH Construction Accident Lawyer
We help injured workers get the possible outcome in their cases
Construction projects are a common sight in Toledo. Construction is an industry that employs a lot of people in the area, but it's dangerous work. There is a lot of physical labor, and workers do their jobs near heavy equipment, construction vehicles and hazardous materials. When construction workers are injured on the job, Gervelis Law Firm fights for their rights.
Common types of construction accidents include falls from heights, explosions, slip and falls, being struck with a heavy object, fires and construction vehicle crashes. Injuries can range from broken bones and internal injuries to catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries. It may take months for some workers to recover. Others never fully recover.
The Ohio workers' compensation system can help injured workers pay for medical treatment and some of the wages they've lost. Workers' compensation laws also prevent you from suing your employer after a workplace accident. But if a third party was responsible for the accident - such as an outside vendor or an equipment manufacturer - our attorneys can help you take legal action to recover additional compensation beyond medical expenses and lost wages.
