Advocate for Victims Since 1973
The Law Offices of Thomas & Pearl has been representing victims of construction and roofing accidents since 1973, and through the years has employed some truly innovative and remarkable strategies to recover compensation for our clients. Some such tactics had never been used before and we actually created new laws by using them to our clients’ benefit.
What’s very important for all victims of construction or roofing accidents to understand is that these cases are much different than representing the victims of car accidents, or other types of injuries. With those differences come various tasks and responsibilities that an otherwise great attorney or law firm may simply not know to employ in a particular case. And at the end of the day, knowing what unique and important tactics to undertake for a client- and having the financial resources to carry them out- can greatly affect the amount of compensation a victim receives for his or her injuries.
Construction site accidents can be caused by many different things. The negligence of a supervisor or co-worker, defective machinery or equipment, inadequate and dangerous work instructions, debris on the ground, along with countless other factors can all contribute to very serious injuries and fatalities. Thus, a victim or the family member of one can have many different potential claims for an injury and it once again becomes the skill and experience of their lawyer to recognize those possibilities and guide the client through them.
Something else many victims do not consider, along with the possibility of various parties being liable for their construction site or roofing accident, is that the case may be covered under Workers’ Compensation, Personal Injury law, or both. That means it is often times necessary for an attorney to not only thoroughly know and understand Personal Injury law, but also have the same level of understanding of the entirely different field of Workers’ Compensation law. Otherwise, a client may recover far less than they would otherwise get under full benefit of the law. At Thomas & Pearl, our attorneys handle construction and roofing accidents as well as Workers’ Compensation claims- and have for decades. So you can rest assured that with Thomas & Pearl as the firm handling your construction or roofing accident that all possible ways to recover for your injuries are being utilized on your behalf.
After being involved in a construction or roofing accident, your first step should obviously be getting the immediate medical care you need. Your second step, however, should be calling Thomas & Pearl. Immediately after making that call, we will have you come in for your FREE consultation. We will even send an experienced attorney to see you for your FREE consultation if you are unable to make it to our office. Then we will evaluate your potential claim(s) by analyzing the liability of all parties and possible insurance coverage, advise you of the legal process for these types of accidents, and make sure you are getting the ongoing medical care you need if you aren’t already. From there, your focus should be all about just getting better and doing whatever your doctors tell you. We will handle just about everything, and personally guide you through those parts you need to do in person. You, the client, will be filled-in before any important step is taken, and will make each critical decision after getting your lawyer’s opinions.
Often times, clients will have to make a decision about whether to settle their accident claim or file a lawsuit and go the litigation route with the ultimate goal of having a jury decide your claim’s fate. Like all other steps, the decision will be yours but another benefit of choosing Thomas & Pearl is that we handle all litigation matters in-house instead of the many firms that simply don’t have the skills or resources to do the same. This provides you, the client, not only with the same level of outstanding legal services you will have come to know from us, but the cohesion of having the same legal minds who began your case taking it all the way to completion.
Once again, we always ask that before choosing your construction or roofing accident attorney, give us a call and talk to us. Ask about our experience helping victims of similar accidents, the MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS ($150,000,000) IN RECENT AND PAST JURY VERDICTS AND SETTLEMENTS we have received on behalf of our OVER 15,000 SATISFIED CLIENTS SINCE 1973, and get a personal feel for the attorneys you will be trusting to fight for your cause to the greatest extent possible.
