Construction Accidents

Seeking the Justice & Recovery You are Owed

Injuries are often serious and can include: loss of limb, loss of sight, loss of hearing, scarring, burns, fractures, head injuries, and even wrongful death. Victims can face massive medical bills and lost wages. Furthermore, the serious and permanent injuries may mean that the victim is unable to ever work again.

Common Construction Accidents

Federal and state laws require that landowners and general contractors provide a reasonably safe work environment. Construction site injuries may be the result of negligence on the part of the general contractor, construction manager, parts supplier and/or manufacturer, or the architect.

Some common examples of construction accidents include:

  • Scaffolding failure
  • Ceiling collapse or wall collapse
  • Falls through unprotected floors or elevator shafts
  • Electrical accidents and/or explosions
  • Falling debris and/or materials
  • Forklift accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Burns
  • Material lift failure

In addition, the failure of tools or heavy equipment to work properly may result in a product liability claim.

Equipment on the construction site that may result in a product liability claim include:

  • Welding equipment
  • Forklifts
  • Cranes
  • Ladders
  • Ropes and cables
  • Scaffolds
  • Construction materials or chemicals
  • Power tools
  • And other heavy equipment

If your construction site accident was not caused by the negligence of another person or product, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation.
