Personal Injury

Construction Accidents

Suffering A Personal Injury On The Job

Any personal injury has the potential to be devastating and catastrophic. However, construction workers often face greater risks than the general public due to the nature of the job. In addition, coming back to work can be more difficult, due to the physical demands, rendering an injured person without the financial means to support their treatment and recovery.

 

At Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., our attorneys have assisted clients in Bismarck and throughout North Dakota who have suffered a job site injury or have been out of work as a result of a construction accident. Our lawyers know the impact such an injury can have on your life and your livelihood, and we pursue your claims tirelessly.

Recovering Compensation After A Construction Accident

Construction injuries can occur due to many reasons, including:

  • Falls from heights, including elevated platforms, scaffolding or ladders
  • Falling objects, including tools and equipment
  • Hazardous working conditions
  • Equipment accidents, including power tool and machinery

These injuries can be life-changing, and even result in a wrongful death. At SKM, we have assisted individuals through every step of the recovery process, from dealing with contractors and third parties, to helping obtain compensation that covers medical expenses, pain and inconvenience.

 

For many injured on job sites, workers’ compensation is often recommended. However, that’s not the only recourse. We can help you evaluate your options.

Acting Quickly Is In Your Best Interest

After a serious injury, contacting an attorney quickly can be most beneficial to your case, as we can help you preserve evidence and documentation of your injury and the surrounding circumstances.

Dangerous & Defective Products

We Can Help If You’ve Been Injured By A Dangerous Or Defective Product

Defective products can cause irreparable damage to consumers and patients. A medical device that causes internal injuries, a drug that worsens your condition rather than helps, a consumer product that malfunctions — any of these can cause serious injuries. In many of these cases, an experienced attorney can seek compensation to cover medical costs, lost wages and other expenses.

 

The lawyers at Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., provide knowledge and guidance to clients in Bismarck and across North Dakota in disputes and claims arising from defective products. Our legal team has won damages that have been used to ease the pain and improve the circumstances of residents throughout the region.

Protection From Unsafe Medical Devices

Medical devices can be lifesaving. They can vastly improve the quality of life for individuals of all ages. Unfortunately, some can pose great risks. Some, including defective hip and knee implants can severely impair you, while others, like defective pacemakers and defibrillators, can be life-threatening. We can help you pursue a claim against these dangerous products.

Dedicated Representation In Product Liability Cases

While the laws and rules surrounding product liability can seem straightforward, these cases are often difficult to take on. Companies and manufacturers have a lot of money at their disposal, including teams of lawyers whose sole goal is to make it difficult for the average consumer to pursue a claim.

 

At SKM, we have the experience, knowledge and resources to help you fight back.

Wrongful Death

Helping Families Recover Compensation After A Tragic Accident

The worst kind of personal injury is the kind that ends a life. The negative consequences of wrongful death reverberates in the lives of surviving family members, whether the victim was a breadwinner or a young child. If you have lost someone you love in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you owe it to your family to seek rightful compensation.

SKM: The Firm to Turn to For Serious Representation

At Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., we have assisted many families in wrongful death cases, involving:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck and 18 wheeler accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Medical device failures
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Oil field accidents
  • Airplane crashes
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Defective product cases
  • Boating accidents
  • Hunting accidents

 

By law, when someone dies due to the negligence of another in North Dakota, there are two types of wrongful death damages.  First, our laws allow family members or representatives to bring a claim for the damages the deceased could have pursued had they survived.  For example, any medical expenses or  pain and suffering your loved one may have endured prior to their death are compensable.  Second, our law allows family members to bring a claim against those at fault for their losses.  In other words the grief of losing a spouse or a child, the loss of financial support and the loss of companionship suffered by the survivors is also compensable.

 

During these difficult times, it’s important to turn to experienced, trusted professionals, who can make sure your interests are respected and protected. We understand that the difficulty associated with a wrongful death: concerns about children’s futures, loss of income and more. We work diligently to make sure our clients are taken care of.

Compensation For Wrongful Death And Catastrophic Injuries

In addition to wrongful death we also represent families of those who were in accidents and suffered catastrophic injuries. These cases are painful to initiate, but in the end they facilitate healing and aid in effecting closure for family members.

Trusted, Experienced Representation For Personal Injury Victims

Accidents happen, but it is seldom that they are nobody’s fault. Unfortunately, people are often seriously injured because of a careless action like texting while driving, running a stop sign, or removing safety equipment from an oil well or construction site. Although no individual or company ever intends to injure you due to inattention, it does not mean they are not responsible for your injury.

 

At Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., we seek to obtain compensation for victims of careless and negligent actions.
