Serious and Catastrophic Construction Accidents
We understand that a disabling injury is devastating to someone who makes his or her living at construction. Many of our clients are not able to return to work at all or must retrain for different jobs. We pursue full damages for any construction-related injury or death:
- Falls from bridges or heights
- Rigging and crane accidents
- Heavy equipment accidents
- On-duty vehicle accidents
- Burns, explosions and electrocution
- Toxic exposures
- Falling or flying objects
- Power tool and machinery injuries
- Scaffolding accidents
- Lost limbs and crush injuries
- Safety equipment failure
Beyond Workers’ Compensation
Your employer, a general contractor or a manufacturer may be responsible for additional damages in some cases. We investigate every possible source of negligence to maximize your recovery:
- Third-party lawsuits against manufacturers for malfunctioning machinery or equipment or failure to warn of dangerous chemicals
- Mandolitis claims against a general contractor or plant owner who intentionally disregarded safety measures that would have prevented the accident
- Full workers’ compensation benefits, including death benefits, permanent total disability, permanent partial disability, occupational disease or payment for scarring/disfigurement.
