Calhoun Workplace Injury Lawyer Represents People Hurt on the Job
Respected Georgia attorney seeks compensation from negligent defendants
Without warning, what started as a normal day on the job could end up with you getting injured and going to a hospital or doctor’s office. At Groover Law Firm, LLC in Calhoun, David Groover is an aggressive Georgia attorney who seeks proper payment for the victims of workplace injuries. If you are hurt in the course of your employment, I will examine the circumstances of your case, explain what expenses are covered by workers’ compensation benefits and advise whether you might be able to obtain an additional financial recovery from a liable third party. Should you decide to seek personal injury damages, I will press for a fair resolution at trial or through a settlement.
Common causes of workplace injuries
As an accomplished personal injury attorney, I assist North Georgia residents in all types of workplace injury claims, such as matters related to:
- Construction accidents — Busy construction sites present a wide range of dangers for workers. If multiple contractors are working on the job, assigning blame for an injury can be complex, but my firm knows how to get to the truth.
- Fires and electrocutions — Failure to ground electrical wires properly or to take reasonable fire prevention measures might result in severe skin damage, smoke inhalation and other serious medical conditions.
- Falls and strikes from dropped objects — No matter what type of environment you work in, unsafe floors and dropped objects pose a potential risk. After a slip and fall or some other type of injury, I work diligently to identify the liable parties.
- Vehicle crashes — Someone who drives as part of their job faces the same dangers as anyone else on the road. My firm represents victims of auto accidents that occurred while they were working.
Whether your case stems from an exertion injury, a fire, a vehicle accident or an equipment failure, my firm delivers sound advice and aggressive advocacy. I work with doctors and other experts to detail the effects of back problems, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and other effects of workplace accidents.
Litigator works aggressively to secure damages from liable parties
The workers’ compensation system is designed to provide employees with reimbursement for medical costs and lost wages linked to an employment-related injury or illness. These claims do not require proof of fault and shield employers and co-workers from most personal injury claims. However, more than one party might be responsible for an on-the-job accident. There are damages that you can recover against a third party in a personal injury claim, such as payment for pain and suffering, that are not available under workers’ comp. When warranted, my firm initiates claims against careless drivers, negligent manufacturers and people who make a worksite more dangerous while working for a different company.
Workplace injuries resulting in wrongful death
Fatal workplace injuries occur frequently in the construction industry and other fields that involve physical labor and heavy machinery. As an experienced Georgia wrongful death lawyer, I counsel family members of victims on the benefits that they are entitled to through the workers’ compensation program, as well as litigation that might be brought against liable third parties. Filing a wrongful death claim can give grieving loved ones the opportunity to obtain payment to cover wages the decedent would have earned, as well as the care, companionship and household services that they’ve been deprived of due to defendants’ actions.
