Common Construction Site Hazards
Construction site injuries are often caused by:
- Falls from scaffolding
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations
- Building collapses
- Ladder incidents
- Falling objects
- Electrical/wiring malfunctions
- Machinery/equipment defects
Whether you were injured on the job or while passing or visiting a construction site, our attorneys can help protect your rights and seek compensation on your behalf.
Workers’ Compensation And Personal Injury Claims
Many construction site accident injuries occur at work, meaning that workers’ compensation is likely the option for recovery. However, third parties are often responsible for failing to properly train, monitor and supervise workers and/or maintain a safe workplace. Third-party manufacturers may also be liable due to machinery and equipment malfunctions (commonly known as products liability). In these cases, we can seek personal injury compensation, which goes beyond the benefits available under the Indiana Workers’ Compensation Act.
Pursuing Wrongful Death Claims
If your loved one died as a result of a construction site injury, we can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the deceased. Compensation can include medical expenses, funeral costs, future earnings and loss of love, care and affection.
