Construction Accidents & Injuries

Common sense actions could help reduce the number of construction accidents. Clearing away debris and stowing tools would eliminate major causes of accidents at building and roadway work sites. Providing adequate training to subcontractors and day laborers would also help prevent accidents. However, contractors and subcontractors ignore OSHA requirements in an effort to save money. As a result, people get injured.

Catastrophic Construction Site Injuries

At Peach & Weathers, our attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience helping people obtain compensation for their injuries, medical bills, and lost income. Many of these clients have been construction workers and passersby. Many of them have sustained catastrophic injuries. Many have become permanently disabled because of their injury, unable to work or attend school for retraining. A few have died from their injuries, leaving behind a family grieving over the wrongful death of their loved one.

In addition to injuries caused by the failure to maintain a clean worksite, construction accidents can be the result of:

  • Product defects in tools and equipment
  • Electrocution
  • Failure to guard the worksite
  • Improper installation of scaffolding
  • Wall collapse
  • Crane accidents
  • Explosions from compressed gas and other materials
  • Falls

We counsel people injured on construction sites, advising them on their options and rights. If they are better served by filing a workers' compensation claim, we will refer them to excellent workers' comp attorneys. If they are eligible to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for their injuries, medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering, our law firm will provide vigorous representation and advocacy.
