What Can a Construction Injury Attorney Do For Me?
It’s important to contact a construction injury attorney to help with your injury claim. There are numerous, complex laws concerning personal injuries and construction sites. There are also multiple liable parties on a construction site.
An experienced Union City construction injury attorney can:
- Determine liability for the injury, whether that is a construction site owner, general contractor, sub-contractor, manufacturers of faulty equipment, or another third-party.
- Conduct a thorough investigation of medical records and estimate present and future losses due to your injury.
- Collect evidence from the construction site, witness statements, and parties related to the incident.
- Pursue negotiations or trial, if necessary, to recover compensation from all liable parties.
At The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C., we provide the resources to investigate your case. There are no upfront charges, and we only get paid if we win.
Common Construction Site Accidents
Although the construction industry employs safety permits, regular inspections, and job safety programs, avoidable accidents still happen. Construction site accidents are often the result of negligence, product defects, and failure to adhere to safety policies and procedures.
Some of the most common construction site accidents include:
- Crane, hoist, and harness accidents
- Collapsed structures
- Improper use, maintenance, or failure of equipment
- Compressed gases
- Mechanical hazards
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Falls of all types
- Fires and explosions
- Scaffolding accident
- Electrical accidents
- Welding accidents
- Falling objects
Cell tower accidents are increasingly more prevalent due to consumer demand and dangerous working conditions.
Construction Injury Liability
Generally, an employee cannot file a lawsuit against their employer unless their employer intentionally harmed them. Instead, an employee files for Workers’ Compensation benefits. However, an employee can file a lawsuit against a third-party.
Examples of third-parties at a construction site are the following:
- Construction site owners
- General and sub-contractors
- Prime contractors
- Architects and engineers
- Manufacturers, retailers, and wholesalers of a defective product that causes an injury
