Strong Representation for Georgia Construction Accident Victims

Construction sites are dangerous places, and workers must often put themselves in harm’s way to get the job done. It is the responsibility of the general contractor to take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of everyone on the site. Any failure in that responsibility puts all workers in danger and can lead to extremely serious injuries.

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury on a construction site, it is important that you have a skilled personal injury attorney on your side who can protect your rights and your future. At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta, our construction injury lawyers have extensive experience representing construction workers as well as visitors to construction sites.

  • Falling debris
  • Elevator accidents

Construction Vehicle Accident

The majority of construction projects require the use of large vehicles that need skilled operators to ensure the safety of everyone on the site. There are no small accidents when mistakes are made with these vehicles, and construction workers can suffer extremely serious or even fatal injuries.

In addition to workers’ compensation benefits, workers may also have the right to seek damages in a separate personal injury claim. Whether your injuries were caused by operator error or an equipment malfunction, you should seek the advice of an experienced construction vehicle accident lawyer who knows the law and will fight to protect your interests.

Scaffolding Injury

Reliable scaffolding is a critical element on nearly every construction site. It is often required to bear heavy loads and needs to provide solid support to crews often working at extreme heights. If the frames are in bad condition or the flooring is inadequate for the job, it can create a dangerous situation for everyone on the site.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a scaffolding accident, you should seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney immediately. Even if your injury falls under workers’ compensation, you may have a claim for additional damages if negligence or a product defect contributed to your injuries. At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta, our lawyers represent clients in all types of scaffolding injury claims.

Representing Georgia Accident Injury Victims

The Briggs Law Firm specializes in representing people and the families of people injured or killed due to the carelessness and recklessness of others. Our founder, W. Winston Briggs, has tried more than 200 jury trials in his 30 year career. Mr. Briggs is a skilled trial lawyer well known for his ability and willingness to try cases. That results in higher settlements to our clients because insurance companies recognize that Mr. Briggs is a seasoned and fearless litigator who will try cases if they don’t pay the full value of the claim. If the case must be tried, there is no better firm to have on your side.

Winston and his team were the best I’ve ever dealt with. Honestly, I’ve hired many law firms in the past 10 years and no other law firm made me feel as important as Winston Briggs. To them I wasn’t just another case, I was family and for that I’m forever grateful. They got me a settlement that I deserved and they fought tooth and nails to make sure I wasn’t being taken advantage of. Nicole, kept me updated with my case’s progress and anytime I had a question she was on it! I felt like I was the only client because of how personalized they made it feel. Best of the best hands down. Thank you once again for everything you did for my family and I!
EM Watson, Former Client
After interviewing attorneys recommended by other cyclists, I engaged W. Winston Briggs as my attorney because he seemed to have the best grasp of my situation and because, of the attorneys I interviewed, Winston had the most litigation experience. Six months after the collision, we have received a policy limit settlement from the driver’s insurance company, and Mr. Briggs has addressed the subrogation claim of my health insurance company, resulting in a substantial reduction of their claim.
Tom Erdmanczyk, Former Client
The case required Mr. Briggs to make numerous trips to Virginia to take on the responsible parties on their home turf. Although it required significant effort, at the end of the day, Mr. Briggs successfully forced the responsible companies to accept responsibility for my husband’s death and to pay a settlement that will take care of my son and me over the course of our lives. The event was tragic but I am very pleased that I hired Winston to represent me and my son in the case.”
Mary Ann Garrard, Former Client
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest. Without having to go through a lawsuit, Mr. Briggs convinced the hotel’s insurance company to pay more than six times the amount they had offered me to settle the claim before I hired Mr. Briggs. I hope I never need his services again but, if I do, I wouldn’t think of hiring any other attorney to represent me.
Ed Dietzel, Former Client
I am extremely pleased I hired The Briggs Law Firm and would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in the position of needing a personal injury lawyer, and particularly, one who has been injured in a bicycle accident. Once the insurance carriers learned Mr. Briggs was my lawyer, they accepted responsibility for the accident and compensated me for my injuries.
Bruce Fernald, Former Client
To those injured; I’m writing to show everyone out there that Mr.Winston Briggs is here to help you. As he listened to my story I realized that he sincerely cared and knew that, even though the injury occurred, he was able to see forward and find ways to help. Winston through the years has demonstrated that he is on the cutting edge of injury recovery. He makes a painful process turn into a more profitable and emotional reward...
Brandon Johnson, Former Client
Attorney Briggs accepted my case, within a month the defendant was served, and less than a year my case was settled. To him I am indebted for his enthusiastic, encouragement and support he and his staff offered throughout the handling of my case. Unlike any other law firm, they continue to keep me in the loop on how my case progressed. I highly recommend Winston Briggs Law Firm to anyone looking for an attorney in Atlanta who cares and have integrity in his work getting the case settled, without a doubt, he’s the Best!
