Workplace and Construction Site Injuries

Even the best construction sites presents numerous safety hazards. At most construction sites you will find heavy machinery such as drills, excavators, dump trucks, back hoes, and scrapers; industrial gases like propane and welding gases; huge, heavy pieces of structural steel, hot asphalt and sharp tools. In such an environment, it is hardly surprising that accidents occur, and that when they do occur, they are often quite serious. Some of the injuries that our construction site injury attorneys routinely confront involve the following, among others:

  • fires
  • roof collapse
  • ladder injuries
  • gas explosions
  • tool malfunction
  • floor collapse
  • trench collapse
  • slip and fall
  • chemical exposure
  • electrocution
  • fall from scaffolds

Workplace injuries in general, and construction site injuries in particular, often yield serious personal injuries such as broken bones, internal bleeding, loss of limbs and sometimes death. Although the injuries are often severe, unskilled attorneys may be unable to obtain a recovery for you because of the well established doctrine that an employee may not sue his or her employer for injuries suffered during the course and scope of employment. Although generally true, a skilled construction site injury attorney or workplace injury lawyer, will have the financail resources, the in-house expertise, the access to respected experts and the respect of the insurance companies to pursue other potential defendants' such as general contractors, subcontractors and manufacturers to ensure you are justly compensated for the injuries that you have suffered.
