Construction Safety & Construction Litigation
If you have been injured in a construction accident, you have important legal rights. You may be entitled to money from workers’ compensation, disability insurance, or union benefits. You may also get money awarded for any personal injuries, or pain and suffering sustained from your construction accident.
Crane Accidents, Scaffolding and Other Hazardous Equipment
On a daily basis, construction workers must deal with some of the most dangerous working conditions faced by employees in any industry. Whether they are on a small project for an individual homeowner, or for a major commercial development, construction workers expose themselves to the risk of sustaining serious work-related injuries that occur with an unfortunate frequency.
Regulations, specifications, inspection requirements, and job safety programs all seek to prevent construction site accidents and promote safety awareness on the part of all parties involved in a construction project. But despite these important efforts to deal with the challenge of construction site safety, accidents occur and will undoubtedly continue to occur, due to both the nature of the work itself and the variety of hazards faced by construction workers.
Lawsuits for Construction injuries can include:
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding injury

- Injuries caused by defective or unreasonably unsafe equipment
- Lifting and repetitive motion injuries
- Slip and Fall injury

Understanding Construction Law and Premise Liability
Building owners must exercise reasonable care to maintain a safe and clean construction site. What may be considered a safe environment may not be legally safe and you should consult a construction accident attorney to know your legal rights if you’ve been injured at a worksite. You may have a case against the property owners, subcontractors, contractors and/or equipment owners and manufacturers.
The attorneys of insurance companies have the main goal of shifting responsibility away from their client (the property owner or manager). The last thing they want is for you to collect on the policy they hold on the negligent party. In short, their job is to see you are not compensated. Our job is to protect you from them, preserve your rights & see that you get the maximum amount for your injuries.
