Have You Been Injured on a Construction Site?

If health and safety precautions aren’t followed properly, it can lead to a work environment that endangers its workers. This can involve workplace hazards like lack of protection equipment or training, obstructed areas, problematic safety assessments, and more. Here are the most common causes of construction accidents:

  • Slips and falls
  • Falls from height
  • Faulty equipment
  • Contact with objects
  • Electrical shock
  • Excessive noise or exposure
  • Vibrating power tools
  • Heavy lifting and manual handling
  • Transportation accidents

Getting the Settlement You Need

There are a number of different types of settlement available for construction site injuries. Whether you’ve been injured by a falling object, faulty equipment or other negligence, we can help you incur settlement. Common worksite injury settlements include:

Workers’ Compensation

In most cases, workers are entitled to compensation if they’re injured at their place of employment while performing their job duties. Most construction employers are also legally required to pay workers’ compensation insurance in case of accidents on their job site. When you file a workers’ compensation claim, you will be entitled to benefits once it’s accepted.

Personal Injury

If you’ve been injured on the job by another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to a personal injury settlement. As long as there’s proof that a third party was responsible for your injury, our team can help you begin a personal injury lawsuit.

Product Liability

Faulty products often cause injuries on construction sites. Issues involving defective ladders, cranes, machines, transportation equipment and more can lead to serious and fatal injuries. If you or a loved one have been injured by construction site equipment, our experienced product liability attorneys are on your side.

Wrongful Death

If your loved one suffered a fatal injury, our team can help you file a wrongful death lawsuit. Losing a loved one due to their work duties is devastating, and you are entitled to settlement for your extreme losses. In some situations, multiple claims may be filed for the same accident.
