Help For Seriously Injured Construction Accident Victims

Construction sites can be dangerous places. Heavy equipment, multiple contractors and tight deadlines can be a recipe for disaster.

At Schoch & Schoch we have been protecting the interests of people throughout North Carolina for more than 80 years.

Guiding You Through The Workers' Compensation Process

An on-the-job injury entitles you to workers' compensation. However, the process of applying for benefits can be complicated. Often, initial claims are denied. We can help guide you through this process and ensure that your paperwork is in order. If you have had a claim denied, we can help appeal that decision. We are committed to helping you recover the benefits you deserve.

Holding All Negligent Parties Accountable Through Third-Party Liability Claims

If you are injured in a construction accident, any claims against your employer are limited to a workers' compensation claim. However, if there are other parties whose negligence helped lead to the accident, it may be possible to pursue additional damages under a third-party liability claim.

Our lawyers represent construction workers in third-party liability matters. We will thoroughly review the circumstances of an accident in order to determine what exactly went wrong. If a piece of equipment failed, it may make sense to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer. If the negligence of a contractor who is not your employer is partly to blame, a lawsuit may be filed against that company. We will pursue all avenues of potential compensation.
