CONSTRUCTION AND INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENTS

Our attorneys have extensive experience in representing workers who have been injured on construction sites and in the workplace.  Although state law limits an employee’s ability to sue their employer in most cases, employees may still have claims against other third parties.  Site owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and other entities may be at fault and legally liable for worksite injuries.  Therefore, in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits, you may be entitled to additional damages for lost income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of services, and disability.  Families of workers killed in industrial accidents often have the right to make wrongful death and survival claims.

Due to the nature of construction and industrial accidents, these cases often have complex regulatory and factual issues.  Our attorneys are well qualified to investigate and pursue your claim.

 

The following are representative examples of construction and industrial accident cases in which our clients have obtained successful results:

 

  • Unsecured construction materials fell and caused crushing injury to bystander.

  • Overhead crane caused concussive injuries to a bystander working on adjacent construction site.

  • Unsafe worksite safety practices caused severe spinal injury to worker on aerial lift.

  • Truck ran over worker on construction site and caused brain injury.

  • Falling scaffolding caused concussive injuries to worker.

  • Negligent operation of a backhoe caused steel worker to fall from wall.

  • Contractor’s failure to mark boundary of construction site resulted injury to bystander who unknowingly entered site.
