How Can a Construction Injury Attorney Help?

A construction injury lawyer at Child & Jackson Personal Injury Lawyers can help you during this challenging time in many ways, including:

Accident Investigation

Your construction injury lawyer will conduct an in-depth investigation reviewing safety records, gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and consulting with experts to determine liability.

Working with Experts

Depending on the nature of the accident, your construction injury lawyer may consult with various experts to help analyze the evidence and determine liability. 

This may include:

  • Engineers
  • Construction safety experts
  • Medical professionals
  • Accident reconstruction specialists

Analysis of Safety Practices

Your attorney will assess whether proper safety protocols were followed at the construction site. They will review safety regulations, industry standards, and the employer’s safety policies to determine if any violations occurred that contributed to the accident.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

At Child & Jackson Personal Injury Lawyers, our construction injury lawyers are experienced negotiators and are familiar with the tactics claims adjusters will try to use to minimize payout or deny a claim. Your attorney will negotiate with the insurance company to reach a fair settlement, one that covers your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Trial Representation

If a fair settlement cannot be reached your attorney will be prepared to take the case to trial.

Damages in a Construction Injury Case

In a construction injury case, you may be entitled to the following types of damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of consortium
  • Property damage
  • Property damage
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress

Who Can Be Held Liable?

Parties that may potentially be held liable in construction injury cases include:

General Contractor

The general contractor responsible for overseeing the construction project may be held liable for injuries resulting from their failure to maintain a safe work environment, properly supervise subcontractors, enforce safety regulations, or provide adequate warnings about known hazards.

Subcontractors

Subcontractors hired to perform specific tasks on the construction site may be held liable for injuries caused by their negligent actions or omissions. This includes failure to adhere to safety protocols, defective workmanship, or improper use of equipment.

Property Owner

In some cases, the property owner where the construction project is taking place may be held liable for injuries suffered by workers or visitors on the premises. This liability typically arises if the property owner fails to ensure that the construction site is safe or if they negligently maintain the property.

Architects and Engineers

Architects and engineers may be held liable for injuries resulting from design defects or errors that contribute to accidents on the construction site. This could include flaws in building plans, inadequate structural designs, or failure to account for safety hazards.

Manufacturers and Suppliers

Manufacturers or suppliers of defective construction materials, tools, or equipment may be held liable for injuries caused by product defects, such as design flaws, manufacturing defects, or failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions for safe use.

Government Entities

In cases involving public construction projects or government-owned properties, liability may extend to governmental entities responsible for overseeing the project or maintaining the premises.

Third Parties

Other third parties, such as utility companies, independent contractors, or negligent drivers in construction zones, may also be held liable if their actions or negligence contribute to construction-related accidents.

I throughly enjoyed working with Erik and the Child & Jackson firm. I was unfortunate enough to be in an automobile accident, him and his team really took care of me and helped me win my case. I am satisfied with all the help and the outcome of the lawsuit. I would definitely work with Child & Jackson if the time comes again. Thank you for everything.

Child & Jackson came highly recommended and did a great job. Unfortunately, after my case settled for coverage maximum, I was in need of their services again. I didn’t even consider going anywhere else. Very caring people.

I was referred to Child & Jackson from a family/friend who had a good experience with them. To my surprise, I actually got to meet and speak with Mr. Child, who was so down to earth (we all know how attorneys can be intimidating). Mr. Child assured me he and his team will take care of me and they kept their words.

I was in a slip and fall injury while 8 months pregnant. My case was difficult as it was a premises case, however, I was referred to Child & Jackson and they fought for my case to justify my injuries. The paralegal was excellent and very through. She was also available whenever I had any questions and walked me through the entire process!

What Are Common Types Of Construction Accident Injuries?

Some common types of construction accident injuries include:

Falls

Falls from scaffolding, ladders, roofs, or other elevated surfaces are among the most common causes of construction-related injuries. These falls can result in fractures, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other serious trauma.

Struck-By Accidents

Workers may be struck by falling objects, such as tools, equipment, or building materials, causing head injuries, fractures, lacerations, or internal injuries.

Caught-In/Between Accidents

Workers may become caught in or between machinery, equipment, or structural components, leading to crush injuries, traumatic amputations, or suffocation.

Electrocution

Contact with live wires, faulty electrical equipment, or overhead power lines can cause severe electrical burns, cardiac arrest, or other life-threatening injuries.

Strains and Sprains

Overexertion, heavy lifting, repetitive motions, or awkward postures can result in musculoskeletal injuries, including strains, sprains, torn ligaments, and herniated discs.

Burns

Exposure to hot surfaces, fires, explosions, or hazardous chemicals can cause thermal burns, chemical burns, or respiratory injuries.

Collapse Accidents

Structural collapses, trench collapses, or scaffolding failures can lead to catastrophic injuries, including crush injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or death.

Equipment Accidents

Malfunctioning or defective equipment, such as cranes, forklifts, power tools, or heavy machinery, can cause accidents resulting in serious injuries, including fractures, traumatic amputations, or crush injuries.

Repetitive Stress Injuries

Prolonged exposure to repetitive tasks, vibrating equipment, or poor ergonomic conditions can lead to repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or bursitis.

Respiratory Injuries

Exposure to dust, asbestos, silica, or other airborne contaminants can cause respiratory conditions, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or occupational lung diseases.
