Who Can File a Construction Accident Claim?

Accidents Happen to Employees & Bystanders

Construction accidents are those that occur on or near construction sites. They often cause injury or death to workers or bystanders. Due to the nature of the construction trade, employees often find themselves confronted by dangerous, life-threatening work conditions—sometimes on a daily basis. Serious accidents and injuries occur with alarming frequency at construction sites throughout the U.S.

The most common construction accidents are:​

  • Falls (due to improperly assembled scaffolding, unsafe ladders, holes in flooring, etc.)
  • Equipment accidents (involving power tools, improperly guarded machines, etc.)
  • Electrocution
  • Vehicle accidents

If you have been injured in an accident, you will have to deal with the insurance companies. The insurance companies have their own interests in mind, not yours. It is important to go to an attorney who will protect your rights.

Many times the claims adjuster of the insurance company goes to see you immediately after the accident. At that time they are looking for ammunition to damage your claim. It is important to have an attorney on your side to prevent that from happening.
