Construction Accident Lawyers in Fort Wayne and South Bend

Our law firm helps injured workers recover

When you've been hurt on a construction site, you need someone who can build a strong case for you. Construction work is dangerous, and construction sites are often messy and disorganized places. The construction accident attorneys at Boughter Sinak, LLC stand up for the rights of injured workers.

Our attorneys handle a broad range of construction accident cases, including:

  • Crane accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Road work zone accidents
  • Nail gun accidents
  • Construction vehicle accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Heat exhaustion/heatstroke
  • Falling objects

These injuries can have a devastating impact on workers. You may not be able to return to work for weeks or months, or you may be permanently unable to work construction as a result of your accident. We can help you get the benefits you need to put your life back together. That's why you need to contact us right away.

Workers' compensation and third-party claims for construction workers

Construction workers, like people employed in any other industry, are entitled to workers' compensation benefits when they are hurt on the job. Under Indiana law, workers' compensation will pay for your medical expenses, two-thirds of your average weekly wages, and certain other benefits if you are permanently disabled. We can help you file your claim for workers' compensation and represent you throughout the process.

However, workers' compensation only goes so far, and construction workers often have other available sources of compensation. There are usually multiple companies working on a single construction site, and your injury may have been caused by the negligence of someone working for a different employer. This enables you to file a third-party claim against the other company and claim damages (financial compensation) for costs not covered by workers' compensation, such as pain and suffering, excess wage loss and loss of consortium.

Our law firm exclusively represents injured people, and we have extensive experience handling both workers' compensation claims and personal injury lawsuits. When you come to Boughter Sinak, LLC after your construction accident, you'll get a dedicated legal team working on both sides of your claim and fighting for all of the compensation you need to put your life back together.
