Construction Injury Lawyers

Construction sites always are potentially dangerous places, and those who work at or visit them are at an increased risk of injury. In addition, construction workers may be injured while on the job at locations other than a construction site. For example, a worker may be injured in a car or truck accident while driving a company vehicle.

In most cases, injuries received at work will be handled through the state's workers compensation system. If, however, you are injured through the carelessness or conscious wrongdoing of someone other than your employer or a fellow employee, you also may have a claim for damages against the person who caused your injury. This can include the employees of other contractors on your job site.

It may be in your interest to file both a workers compensation claim and a personal injury claim against the person who injured you. This can be complicated, but with our more than 50 years experience in representing accident victims, we can help you get everything you rightfully deserve from all those who are responsible for injuring you.

In some cases, non-employee visitors are injured at construction sites or elsewhere by on-the-job construction workers. We will represent you, too.

Common construction site accidents include:

  • Electrocution (the most common cause of construction site fatalities)
  • Falls
  • Falling objects/debris
  • Dangerous or defective equipment
  • Explosions
  • Fires
  • Scaffold accidents
  • Ladder accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Welding and cutting mishaps
