Anchorage Work Accident Information

Have You Been In a Construction Site Accident?

If you've been in a construction site accident, whether you working at the construction site or a passerby, you may have certain remedies owed to you from the commercial business that owns the site and/or the entity operating out of the site. A skilled Anchorage construction site accident attorney will be able to review the merits of your case and determine if you are entitled to any damages or monies from the owner of the property or the controller of the site.

Types of Construction Site Accidents

While accidents can happen anywhere, a construction site is ripe with opportunity for an accident to occur. There are plenty of heavy machinery and hazardous materials around a construction site that can be the cause of an accident, as well as workers who have to work high off the ground or sometimes underground. No matter the accident on a construction site, an attorney will be able to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney's hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For "routine" legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.
