Construction Accidents

Construction Accidents

Construction sites are by nature dangerous. Construction workers often work at high elevations on scaffolds and ladders, walk near open excavation, and operate power tools, trucks, and heavy machinery. When a construction accident does occur, the victim typically suffers a catastrophic or fatal injury: amputation, brain injury, crush injury, electrical injury, or a spinal cord injury. Lawyers at Logeman, Iafrate & Logeman, P.C. help clients injured on construction sites recover compensation that they need and deserve.

Recovering compensation after your accident

  • Injured workers employed on the construction site at the time of accidents on the job will receive some benefits from workers' compensation. If you were injured you already realize that those benefits will not cover all of your losses, and provide nothing for pain and suffering. If you have lost a family member in a fatal accident it is difficult to describe the extent of your loss. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, you may be entitled to additional compensation.
  • If the owner of the property or the general contractor, not your employer, was responsible for a hazardous condition on the property, you may be entitled to make a negligence or bodily injury claim.
  • If your injury resulted from scaffolding, a ladder, a tool, or heavy equipment that was defective, improperly maintained, or dangerous in design, you may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer, distributor, or maintenance contractor responsible for the equipment.
  • If the wall that fell or the trench collapse that crushed you was the result of an architectural error, you may have a professional malpractice claim.
