Construction sites are notoriously hazardous work environments. Men (and sometimes women) work in close proximity with large, heavy equipment. The work is physically strenuous and protective gear such as boots and helmets may protect workers — but they also make for clumsiness. Debris strewn on walkways, uncovered holes and weak, unfinished structures are all factors that figure into certain types of construction accidents.

Construction Site Accidents | Scaffolding and Crane Injury | Attorneys Represent Injured Workers

Every case is unique, but common construction accident scenarios often fall into these categories:

  • Roof falls
  • Falls through holes
  • Falls into ditches
  • Falling objects striking a worker
  • Crane accidents
  • Ladder accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Power tool accidents
  • Construction vehicle crashes
  • Heavy equipment accidents

When an accidental injury occurs, a worker and others may believe that a workers’ compensation claim is the full legal remedy available for obtaining financial relief. However, many construction accidents also involve third-party liability. When there is third-party liability, an injured person may have an opportunity to make a claim for compensation from:

  • An equipment manufacturer
  • A subcontractor
  • A delivery service company
  • A property owner

With a third-party liability claim, an injured person may be able to obtain enough compensation to be able to cover all necessary expenses after a construction accident:

  • Medical bills paid
  • Lost wage replacement
  • Disability accommodations
  • Personal care attendants
  • Home remodeling or a move to handicapped-accessible housing
