The construction industry in Florence and throughout South Carolina provides many highly rewarding jobs. But those jobs can be dangerous, too. In fact, construction accidents cause one in five worker deaths in the U.S., the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports.

Our law firm has worked with construction workers and their families in South Carolina for Over 50 Years. That experience allows us to understand the ins-and-outs of many different types of construction accidents, including:
At Jebaily Law Firm, we know how important it is to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation of a construction site accident. We will go to the scene of the accident, interview eyewitnesses, inspect machinery and equipment, collect and review company records and take many other steps as part of our investigation. We also will consult with construction industry and workplace safety experts to determine the cause of an accident and to identify who is responsible for it.
State and federal workplace safety officials such as those from OSHA may investigate a construction accident in order to determine whether violations of safety standards occurred. Those investigations can lead to sanctions against a negligent construction contractor or sub-contractor. However, in order to protect your right to compensation, you should work with a knowledgeable construction accident lawyer who will conduct an independent investigation and assess your legal options.
When you work with Jebaily Law Firm on your construction accident case, we will explore all available sources of compensation for you, which may include one or more of the following:
Our law firm has extensive experience with helping injured construction workers to pursue claims for South Carolina workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits can cover all accident-related medical and rehabilitation expenses, nurse managers, as well as a portion of the wages that a worker loses due to a temporary or permanent, partial or complete disability caused by the accident.
In some situations, a construction worker who gets hurt on the job, or family members that have lost a loved one in a construction accident, may be eligible to pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim. For instance, a worker may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent, non-employer (or “third party”) that caused his or her injuries such as an architect or the owner of the construction site.
A personal injury claim can seek a full recovery of an injured workers’ past and future medical expenses as well as lost income, diminished future earning ability, pain and suffering damages and more. A wrongful death claim would seek a different set of damages, including coverage of funeral and burial costs as well as loss of a loved one’s financial contributions.
If a construction accident causes you to suffer a physical or mental impairment that prevents you from being able to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD, or SSDI) benefits. An experienced disability benefits attorney from Jebaily Law Firm can help you to determine your eligibility, assist you with filing an application for benefits or help you to appeal a denied claim.
It all starts with a free consultation. We will take the time to understand how your construction accident occurred and how your injuries have impacted your ability to work and enjoy a normal life. You can also use the consultation to learn more about our experience and our record of results. We will charge nothing for our legal services unless we recover compensation for you.
