Representing clients throughout California, the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, advocates on behalf of individuals who have suffered serious injuries or families who have lost family members in excavations, ditch collapses, trench collapses, wall collapses, tunnel collapses and serious injuries.
Some construction workers (and bystanders) have suffered devastating crush injuries with internal organ damage, broken bones, neck injuries, back injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Others have experienced near suffocation resulting in anoxic brain damage after being buried alive or trapped underground.
Pain and suffering compound economic losses for the accident victim and family members. Suffering people need help after an excavation accident — medical help, legal help and financial help. An experienced personal injury attorney is an invaluable ally after a catastrophic injury or fatal accident. We represent construction accident victims on a contingency basis. This means that attorneys fees will be due only if and when a settlement or verdict are paid out.
Whether you hire the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, or another personal injury attorney, we urge you not to try to obtain compensation on your own after an excavation accident or ditch collapse.
Insurers may attempt to get a signature from you in exchange for quick but inadequate financial compensation. This is rarely a good idea, especially when there are catastrophic injuries to cope with.
The construction accident victim and his or her family is likely to need extensive medical care, rehabilitation, lost wage replacement, durable medical equipment and other costly items. It is important to have a good grasp on the actual costs involved before agreeing to a settlement.
An experienced San Jose excavation accident lawyer can adeptly guide you toward a resolution that is in your best interests. For example, your lawyer may discover additional liable parties that will provide for greater compensation than what you might ordinarily receive after a workplace accident.
Most clients of our law firm eventually receive ample offers of compensation from responsible parties — property owners, equipment manufacturers, subcontractors or any other person or organization with liability for the accident. Our construction ditch accident law firm is ready to take a case to court if necessary.
