We Handle All Types of Construction Site Injury Claims
We aggressively fight for construction workers who have been hurt in accidents, including:
- Falls from heights—Falls buildings, from ladders or scaffold, from roofs, elevator shafts, hazardous openings, and other height related accidents.
- Dangerous or defective tools, machinery or equipment, such as hoists that fail or collapse, cranes, harnesses or similar devices which fail to protect the worker. We handle claims involving the failure to provide appropriate guardrails or barriers, to properly assemble and maintain scaffolds and ladders, and to provide proper safety equipment to construction workers performing any task at an elevated height above the ground.
- Falling objects—Injuries resulting from being struck by falling objects, such as cinder blocks, bricks, building materials, equipment, debris, tools or machinery
- Trench collapses or cave-ins -Claims involving workers that are injured due to a failure to properly shore or perform excavation work resulting in a trench collapse.
- Jobsite motor vehicle accidents—Claims involving collisions or pedestrian accidents on a construction site.
When you’ve been hurt on a construction site, we’ll take immediate action to protect your rights:
- We will help you file for Workers’ Compensation benefits to get your lost wages and medical expenses paid.
- We’ll conduct a thorough investigation of the accident, visiting the jobsite, taking witness statements, so that we can prepare and present the most compelling case for your full financial recovery.
- We’ll bring in all necessary expert witnesses, from structural engineers and accident reconstruction specialists to medical professionals and economists, so that we can show a judge and jury exactly what happened, what you’ve lost and what you need to be made whole.
- We’ll carefully examine, evaluate and preserve all evidence to support your claim, and will interview or depose all necessary witnesses.
- We’ll prepare and file all pleadings and other documents required by the courts throughout the legal process.
- We’ll be with you every step of the way to make certain that you and your case are well prepared for trial or settlement.
