Construction Accidents

A third-party cause of action can arise after a construction injury. For instance, construction workers often work at the construction site at the same time as other subcontractors. The work may overlap a few days or several crews may be on the job site at the same time. When an individual is injured by the negligence of another, or when an injury is caused by defective machinery or equipment, we can determine the possibility of a third-party liability claim. We are highly adept at identifying all possible liable parties in accidents that include the following:

  • Falls from scaffolding and ladders
  • Truck accidents occurring on the job
  • Lifting injuries
  • Being struck by falling debris
  • Cuts and abrasions from unguarded equipment
  • Defective equipment accidents
