Construction Accident Lawyers and Construction Accident Attorneys

Construction site accidents account for approximately 20% of all workplace fatalities and hundreds of thousands of workplace injuries. Due to the hazardous conditions experienced daily by construction workers, workplace injuries are an ever-present possibility. Often, workers' compensation claims fail to completely cover the high cost a construction worker has to pay following a construction accident; an experienced construction accident lawyer can help file a lawsuit to recover these damages, including lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

Construction accident injuries may result from errors in judgment, insufficient safety precautions, or faulty equipment. Types of construction accidents include:

  • Being struck by falling objects
  • Falling from a ladder or height
  • Scaffold accidents
  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Chemical leaks
  • Fires and explosions
  • Electrocution and electric shock accidents
  • Welding accidents
  • Trenching accidents
  • Slip and falls or trip and falls

Despite the efforts of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), there are no perfectly safe construction sites. If you have been injured on a construction site due to the negligence of another person or company, you may be able to file a construction accident lawsuit. Construction site owners, contractors, design engineers, and product manufacturers are all parties who may be found liable for damages if their fault contributed to your construction site injuries.
