Labor Day is a holiday intended to acknowledge the American working force for their dedicated efforts. To thank the hard-working men and women for all they contribute to the infrastructure of our country.

Construction accident stats are constantly shared by various data sources and personal injury firms. The steady stream of facts and figures conveys the connection between risky yet necessary labor-intensive jobs with sometimes fatal and often life-changing workplace injuries.

A holiday that lands on the first Monday in September, Labor Day was first celebrated on September 5, 1882, in New York City. Now, Labor Day is embraced across America as an annual tribute to the men and women who have built this country and help to maintain it.

To show the relationship between construction and personal injury, we’ve compiled a few construction accident stats and are accompanying the numbers with an example of a recent construction accident lawsuit from one of our RW Lynch Network Attorneys.

 

 

Construction Accident Stats:

  • In 2015, slips and falls were the cause of 354 deaths and were the primary cause of death for construction workers (Source: OSHA).
  • 39.5% percentage of construction accident deaths that occurred due to contact with objects of equipment (Source: OSHA).

Construction jobs are taxing on one’s body and come with the inherent dangers that accompany the building of a structure. From time to time, all of us need the assistance of the skills and knowledge these workers possess in order to live in our homes, drink clean water, use electricity, and drive on our roads. It’s all too easy to overlook these contributions that help us in our daily lives.

RW Lynch Construction Accident Story: Young Man Killed by Defective Bulldozer

An RW Lynch Network Attorney in Oklahoma reports that his firm received a call via the Injury HelpLine from a grieving woman who needed help with a substantial case. Sadly, her son was killed in an accident while on a construction site due to a defective bulldozer that he was operating at the time of the accident (Story continues below continued construction accident stats).

Help Construction Accident Victims

 

Construction Accident Stats (continued):

  • 1 in 10 Construction Workers are Injured Every Year. (Source: OSHA)
  • Between 2002 and 2912, 19.5% of all workplace deaths were from the construction industry. (Source: EHS Today)
  • On average, in 2015, a work zone crash occurred once every 5.4 minutes. (Source: FARS/GES Data)
  • Between 1982 and 2015, 20% of the 768 deaths recorded in construction occurred in the victims first two months on the job. (Source: OSHA)
  • Construction workers between 25-34 years old are the most likely to be injured in a construction site accident (Source: OSHA)

The young man who passed away was in his prime. All signs are pointing to this being a scenario that involves mechanical failure. The young man worked on construction sites for a good few years and had no history of irresponsible behavior when it came to operating large machinery or motorized vehicles on the job site.

The victim of this construction site accident was not only a beloved son. He was the sole provider for his wife and child. They will now have to find a way to pay their living expenses and the high costs that accompany such a tragic situation. Our Member Attorney is currently helping to get a large settlement for the family.

A huge “thank you” to the hard-working men and women for all they contribute to building and maintaining the infrastructure of our country.

The wrongful death/product liability suit against the bulldozer’s manufacturer will no doubt be a large one. The RW Lynch Network Member Attorney thanks the Injury Helpline for sending him the call and will be providing updates as the case progresses.

Car crash cases tend to settle quickly.

Are you currently representing a client or clients in a car crash case? Auto accidents are rampant year round and, due to this, remain a steady source of income for Personal Injury Attorneys in our Network.

“Road crashes cost the U.S. $230.6 billion per year or an average of $820 per person.” – ASIRT

 

Auto accidents are rampant across the country. Injury victims need your help.

In this particular scenario, our Member Attorney signed SIX cases from ONE phone call!

Jackson, MS – An Injury Helpline caller asked to be connected with an RW Lynch Member Attorney because he, his wife, and daughter were involved in an automobile accident. The family went through a harrowing ordeal during the car crash and are lucky to be alive.

A fourth and fifth car crash case from the same family!

It also turned out that, prior to the first crash, his wife and daughter were in another automobile accident a few months prior and had not yet spoken with an attorney about their previous auto wreck.

The Member Attorney immediately signed up the family of three for the first accident. He also signed the mother and daughter again for the second car crash case.

“An average of 2.35 million people are injured or disabled due to car crashes in the united states per year.” – ASIRT

A SIXTH personal injury car crash case signed from just one call!

The caller informed the attorney that his brother was involved in a separate automobile accident. After speaking with the brother, the attorney signed him as a client.  Six clients in one call!

When it comes to lawyer marketing, there are many different strategies to choose from.  Here are a few tips to keep in mind while you devise a plan. 

When it comes to getting the word out about your legal services, what’s the most effective path? The truth about lawyer marketing – it’s not easy. But with dedication and know-how, you’ll be able to carve out a name for your firm that will last in the minds of your community.

Designate a Budget

What type of budget have you decided to put toward growing a name for your firm? Having some money to allocate for marketing is essential. Look over past settlements and successful cases that have been the exact type of incoming business you want. What brought them in? Call your local paper and ask how much it will cost to place an ad. Check with the bus stop bench advertising groups as well since other attorneys use that space. Then add up those numbers to see how feasible your lawyer marketing strategy will be in terms of quarterly expenses.

 

 

Create Exclusivity for Your Law Firm

What does exclusivity mean? When you join a network like RW Lynch, not only will you get access to calls that come in specifically to your firm, you’ll get hands-on assistance from our sharp team of Account Executives that guide you down the path to success. Along with the exclusive regions we give our personal injury member attorneys, we also help to cut back on the worry and hassle mentioned when trying to form a budget.

 

 

Keeping an Online Content Schedule in Motion

You have a busy schedule. In order to achieve a fluid amount of content moving from your site, you need to keep your eyes and ears open to the news that is relatable to your firm. On top of that, you need to see what keywords make the most sense for your firm to appear under. Designate seven keywords where you want to be in the top results. Then, make sure these keywords are expertly woven into the fabric of your website by placing them methodically on the pages of your site that relate to the keyword along with producing at least 3 original blogs a week.

Contact us to grow your practice

 

 

 

Know Your Audience

Do you want to be local? Statewide? How far outside of your region do you want to be known? Consider the ups and downs of maintaining a large area around your practice. Also, who is your target audience? As discussed in the finding your niche blog, you’ll want to create a specialty for your firm.

This shows that you are an expert on a specific subject. Look up “Dog Bite Attorney” or “Construction Accident Injury Lawyer”, chances are you’ll see firms that take pride in being the go-to firm for a specific case. Aim to be that firms new competition.

 

Building a Reputation in Your Community

Consider Public Relations tactics for your business. A personal injury firm that is involved in their community by giving back and being present among the people you hope to represent is a sure fire way to position your business in a positive light. This could include sponsoring a local youth sports team or sponsoring a large meal at a homeless shelter. Not only are you giving back, your name will be associated with the pulse of the people who will know to go to you for help when they need it. You may even get some free press out of it which will help with your Google results.

 

Seem like a lot? We agree. That’s why we created a service that focuses on lawyer marketing across the country. Take a look at the testimonial videos and hear from lawyers that have had success with the program. When you become an exclusive Member Attorney with RW Lynch, you receive injury victims who know about The Injury HelpLine as a trusted method of connecting with a personal injury lawyer.

When it comes to age, no one is exempt from the frightful and sometimes deadly experience of being in a car accident.

The number of children who go through being in a car accident is alarming and should catapult further ways to instill preventable options.

“Most of the children who died were not wearing seatbelts — nationwide, 43% were unrestrained or improperly restrained.” – NY Times

A mother strapped a two-year-old child into a car seat.  The child was in the back seat facing the rear of the car as the law requires and is a common car safety practice for children under the age of 11.

The mother merged onto the freeway and proceeded down the road. Traffic came to a sudden halt, the mother hit her breaks, heard a terrible screeching noise behind her, and doesn’t remember what happened next due to blacking out from the force of the surprise impact.

This big rig T-boned the other vehicle.

When she came to, she was being pulled from her damaged car by paramedics. A large semi had smashed into the rear of the vehicle. Sadly, the child did not survive the ordeal due to the speed at which the large vessel had hit the car.

While it may not seem like a reckless speed, the driver of the semi-truck was cruising 55 mph in a 45 mph zone which is plenty fast enough to inflict serious damage.

Our Member Attorney signed the grieving mother on as a client and is currently fighting for a LARGE SETTLEMENT.

“In 2013, about 2,000 youth ages 16 to 19 were killed, and approximately 240,000 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor vehicle crashes.” – CDC

As a public service, we can only hope that people read these personal injury case studies and take extra precautions by remaining diligent in staying aware of their surroundings while behind the wheel. Children are precious and a life cut short hurts us all. Tell your clients to buckle up and make sure seat belts are properly fastened each time they get into a car.

A six-figure settlement personal injury case, like the one reported here, is more common than you may think.

This case was reported to us by an attorney who has mastered getting clients to the point that he can sense it when a six-figure settlement personal injury case is coming his way.

In this particular Injury HelpLine case story, a semi-truck was trying to make good time on an open highway. Road conditions were slick and, instead of taking it slow and steady, the driver attempted to pass a small car in the right lane.

“About 130,000 individuals are injured each year in truck collisions.” – NHTSA

 

Contact us to grow your practice

 

 

It’s not clear if the truck driver was drowsy while behind the wheel or if this trucking accident was simply caused by a lapse in judgment. Nonetheless, the large semi collided with the small car as the large vessel tried to merge into the left lane.

The impact was harsh, striking the back left side of the small vehicle causing it to fishtail. The smaller car careened off the road and slammed head-on into a tree.

“For every 100 million miles driven on U.S. roadways, there are 2.3 deaths and 60.5 injuries caused by big rigs.” – NCSA

This near-fatal crash left the driver of the small car fighting for his life. The plaintiff, who had a loved one contact Injury HelpLine on his behalf, sustained severe injuries and is currently in his local hospital breathing with the help of a ventilator.

As do most large fleets owned by Trucking Companies, The semi-truck has excellent insurance. Since this is a case where the truck driver was clearly at fault, our Member Attorney expects the case to move quickly and is estimating the settlement will be in the MID SIX-FIGURE RANGE.

If you’re a Personal Injury Attorney and are currently looking for a six-figure settlement personal injury case then read up more on RW Lynch and the exclusive regions we assign to personal injury firms around the country.

This dog bite case serves as an example that, as long as some dog owners continue to be negligent, dog bite related cases will continue to rise.

In this hair-raising dog bite case study, the mother of an 8-year-old girl was connected through Injury HelpLine to a Member Attorney after her daughter went through a frightening ordeal when she was attacked by a neighbors dog.

Get New Clients with RW Lynch

 

“A dog bites one out of every 72 people.” – CDC

During the attack, the young girl received severe bites in her face, arms, and torso.  The distressed mother rushed her daughter to the hospital where the girl received dozens of stitches and was prescribed various types of medicine to prevent infection from the dog bites.

The incident has resulted in permanent scarring on various parts of the girl’s body.

“Approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States every year, and 900,000 of those bites become infected.” – CDC

The owner of the dog has homeowners insurance and is cooperating with our Member Attorney.  Sadly, this ordeal has caused the little girl to have reoccurring nightmares and will be visiting a therapist to help her through this tough time.

The expensive hospital bills are without a doubt a burden but the emotional damage inflicted upon this young victim will follow her for years to come.

Our Member Attorney is working toward a settlement for this dog bite case to cover any and all future plastic surgery and therapy. He anticipates a LARGE SETTLEMENT for the family.

When it comes to advertising, the market is flooded with Personal Injury Lawyers. Legal advertising is more expensive than ever.

 

Bids for keywords on Google Ads with a legal focus are set at ludicrous prices. Social media platforms are inundated with ads. In terms of legal advertising, the lemon has been squeezed to the max.

“We’ve gone from being exposed to about 500 ads a day back in the 1970’s to as many as 5,000 a day today.”Walker-Smith

The general population is inundated with hundreds of ads fighting to grab their attention in the digital space (not to mention physical locations like billboards and bus stop benches). It’s becoming more and more difficult to stand out from the herd.

Two key legal advertising stats:

  • 78% of the top 100 Google terms are associated with litigation – SEM Rush
  • Legal advertising on AdWords makes up for the most expensive keywords to target. Keywords may cost upwards of $600.00+ per click to appear at the top of search results. – Forbes

If the only way to be seen in the legal advertising realm is to spend big money, it’s really only realistic for large firms to spend on advertising due to the large settlements they receive. As a small to mid-size firm, you might as well be betting your marketing budget at the racetrack.

This personal injury case study is not uncommon in terms of the calls we receive on The Injury HelpLine from people who work in construction.

BOSTON, MA – According to The Center for Construction Research and Training, falls on construction sites are the greatest cause of fatal construction injuries with 33% of recorded incidents being from scaffolding on the side of buildings. 

In this particular personal injury case study, an RW Lynch Network Attorney reports a recently signed case from a construction worker with many years of experience in the field. The worker was performing a routine task helping with a dropped ceiling installation inside a large office structure. The scaffolding was secured incorrectly and the worker fell many stories to the ground.  He suffered from a separated shoulder joint and multiple contusions.

Due to the nature of this case and the severity of the fall, this particular scenario turned into a substantial workers compensation case. The injuries he is dealing with are significant. The worker won’t be able to return to his job for a while and thus will need to be compensated for lost wages and to pay for his injuries and rehabilitation.

Our Network Attorney signed the case and is expecting a large settlement for his client.

Construction work comes with a risk. That said, this doesn’t make the owners of large construction firms exempt from assisting their employees when injuries occur.

The idea of this exercise is to be truthful with your businesses successes and shortcomings. Once you create a clear path it will be that much easier to allocate a budget to marketing and other strategies that will bring in long-term clients and help you build your firm.

 

Strengths. Weaknesses. Opportunities. Threats.

Strengths: How does your firm differentiate itself from others firms in your region?
