Construction Accidents
personal injury lawyers

The construction industry employs over 6 million people in the United States and is considered one of the country's most dangerous professions. Each year over 8,000 construction workers are injured or killed on the job, and the statistics seem to continue to rise despite new regulations imposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Dozens of workers are involved in construction-related accidents every day. Many of these accidents could have been avoided if the employer offered proper training and supplied adequate safety equipment.  Heavy, dangerous equipment, often defective, is usually blamed in construction accidents. Injuries are often life-threatening. Scaffolding accidents, electrical shocks, severe gashes caused by sharp tools and falling equipment leading to serious head and brain injuries are just a few of the potential dangers laborers face.

When a construction accident occurs it is often difficult to determine who may be at fault. Injured workers have filed lawsuits against architects, contractors and subcontractors. Every situation is different. Matters get even more confusing when worker's compensation laws are factored in. Worker's compensation regulations forbid an employee from filing a lawsuit against an employer over a construction accident. An experienced attorney familiar with construction accident law is necessary when filing a complaint.
