Proven Advocacy For Injured Construction Workers
After an accidental injury at a construction site, the injured and their family members often face a daunting uphill battle. If you are in this situation, your first priority is your healing and ongoing physical recovery. Financial concerns go hand-in-hand with your medical needs. An attorney’s guidance can be as essential to your overall outcome as a doctor’s skillful care. Overall recovery after a serious or catastrophic workplace injury may involve the following challenges and losses:
- Emergency medical evaluation and treatment
- Ongoing medical care and therapy
- Temporary or personal disabilities
- Lost income
- Difficulties that may last for months or years
I Am Ready To Guide You Through The Recovery Process
I am attorney Brad Crosta, an experienced lawyer with 40 years of experience and a strong track record that has included many notable results for Washingtonians affected by workplace injuries. I bring empathy along with extensive knowledge of the legal processes that can help injured workers and their families find relief through:
- Workers’ compensation claims
- Appeals and litigation as needed if a workers’ compensation insurer denies, diminishes or delays a claim unfairly
- Personal injury claims and lawsuits against third parties (not employers)
- Lawsuits against grossly negligent general contractors, as in the case that I brought regarding the general contractor who was responsible when Andre Stutes fell from a roof and was seriously injured
