Why You Need an Experienced Construction Site Injury Attorney

Construction site accidents can result in serious injuries and even fatalities. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction site accident, it is crucial to seek legal representation from an experienced attorney who specializes in construction site injury cases. Here's why:

  1. Knowledge of Construction Site Regulations: An experienced attorney will have a deep understanding of the complex regulations and safety standards that govern construction sites. They can identify any violations and use this information to strengthen your case.
  2. Investigation and Evidence Gathering: A skilled attorney will conduct a thorough investigation to gather evidence, such as photographs, witness statements, and expert opinions. This evidence can be crucial in proving liability and securing a fair settlement or verdict.
  3. Negotiation Skills: Insurance companies and construction companies often try to minimize their liability and offer low settlements. An experienced attorney knows how to negotiate with these parties to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
  4. Understanding of Personal Injury Laws: Construction site injury cases involve complex legal principles. An attorney who specializes in this area of law will have a deep understanding of personal injury laws and how they apply to your case.
  5. Maximizing Compensation: A skilled attorney will fight aggressively to maximize your compensation. They will consider all aspects of your case, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future damages, to ensure you receive a fair and just settlement or verdict.

What Constitutes a Construction Site Accident?

Both construction workers and passersby who live near construction zones may be injured by debris or other dangerous conditions  arising from the site.

Some common examples of construction site accidents include:

  • excavation collapses on roads or sidewalks;
  • slips and falls on construction materials, scaffolding, slippery floors;
  • machinery or equipment failures or malfunctions (e.g., forklift accidents);
  • temporary structure failures, such as fences made of defective parts;
  • tools, equipment, and building materials falling from overhead, such as while a worker is operating on a scaffolding with pedestrians below;
  • reckless drivers in road construction zones.

The nature of the accident will determine the party at fault for the accident. For instance, if the construction site accident is due to an equipment failure with defective parts, the manufacturer of the tool may be liable. If the accident involves a driver not exercising caution and reasonable safety while passing through a construction zone and consequently injuring a worker, the driver may be at fault.

    What Civil Claims Can I Pursue?


    "She cares about her people. That is what's different about Betty." -Erin, Former Client

    There are several ways an injured individual can claim damages for an accident, depending on their status and role in the accident. If the injured person is a construction worker who was injured on the job, they may want to claim workers’ compensation with benefits like permanent disability and lost wages. If they seek to take legal action against a third party, such as a negligent driver or the company that provided the faulty equipment, they can file a lawsuit showing that the third party acted negligently, causing their injury.

    Specific types of civil claims an injured plaintiff may make include premises liability claims and product liability claims. A premises liability claim involves a negligent property owner who did not take the necessary precautions to keep their premises safe for use (if they had knowledge or should’ve had knowledge that there was a safety hazard). A product liability claim is when an equipment manufacturer breaches their duty to ensure their products have the appropriate safety measures to protect against injuries.

    In any case, whether you seek to pursue a workers’ compensation claim in a construction site accident or file a personal injury lawsuit for damages, Davis Injury Firm can help. Note that the statute of limitations for filing a workers’ compensation claim is 1 year from the date of the accident. Other personal injury lawsuits have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the date of the accident.
