Construction Site Accidents Can Result in Devastating Injuries

Construction sites are dangerous places, even when all the proper precautions are taken. They are even more hazardous when errors are made and the site is not being run properly. If you are a construction worker and you have suffered a job site injury, you are entitled to workers' compensation, and may be able to pursue a separate lawsuit for additional compensation.

The workers' compensation attorneys at Law Offices of Gallner & Pattermann, P.C., understand what it takes to help injured workers receive the benefits they deserve. Our managing partner Laura Pattermann has practiced workers' compensation law since 1944, serving clients in both Iowa and Nebraska. Our firm is dedicated to helping injured workers obtain the full and fair compensation they deserve after a work accident.

Handling a Variety of Construction Site Accidents in Iowa and Nebraska

Construction site injuries are often serious, preventing the worker from performing his or her job for an extended period, or perhaps indefinitely. If you have suffered a back or neck injury, broken bones, eye injury, a head injury or any other kind of injury, we can help. If your loved one was killed in a construction accident, we may be able to help you pursue a wrongful death claim.

Our attorneys handle construction site accidents involving:

  • Construction site debris
  • Scaffolding collapses and ladder falls
  • Heavy equipment
  • OSHA safety violations
  • Toxic exposure
  • Electrocutions and burns

Beyond Workers' Comp

If your accident was caused by a third party other than your employer, you may be able to file a personal injury claim in addition to a work comp claim. Our experienced Council Bluffs injury lawyer, T.J. Pattermann, has successfully handled many of these third-party liability claims for clients in Iowa and Nebraska.

Common scenarios where there may be third-party liability include:

  • When a site foreman or supervisor fails to conduct inspections of the site
  • When the site is not in compliance with OSHA and other regulations
  • When a piece of equipment is defectively designed or manufactured

Construction cases often involve large companies, multiple defendants and a team of lawyers opposing you. Our legal team's aggressiveness and excellent reputation help level the playing field, allowing injured workers to be treated fairly.
