Industrial And Construction Accidents

Construction and industrial accidents kill and injure thousands of workers in the United States each year. Even with laws and trade provisions designed to reduce the incidents of death and injury, one out of every ten construction workers suffer some kind of on-the-job injury, including:

  • Falls
  • Scaffolding, Crane, Derrick, Conveyor, Ladder, Winch, Grater, Scraper, Backhoe, and Boiler Accidents
  • Electric Shock
  • Trench Collapse
  • Fire and Explosion
  • Compressed Gases Accidents
  • Welding Accidents

Although most injured workers will be entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits, these benefits will not cover all of the expenses faced by an injured worker and do not provide compensation for pain and suffering and the full range of damages available to the loved ones of a worker who is killed in an accident.

When a construction site or industrial accident occurs, responsibility for the personal injury can be attributed to a variety of individuals or businesses, including the owners, contractors and subcontractors, engineers, electricians, scaffolding companies, architects, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment.

Your claim must be viewed with full consideration of federal and state regulations governing construction and industrial sites in order to evaluate all potential actions or legal claims which exist against the third parties who may be responsible for a construction site accident. Our firm has the experience to inspect worksites, preserve evidence and identify and question critical witnesses.

You are entitled to be seen by a physician of your own choosing, but that choice is critical! Don’t make it without the assistance of an experienced injury attorney. Remember, the company doctor has an ongoing relationship with your employer to protect. He may be looking after their interests (and his) and putting your interests second.

Let us help you with this critical choice to make sure that you get the medical care and the compensation that you deserve. Workers who have been injured and the families of workers who have been killed in construction site or industrial accidents are represented on a contingency fee basis: no attorney fee is earned unless we obtain a recovery for our client.
