The law dictates that construction companies have a duty to protect workers while on site. This includes making reasonable accommodations that create a safe working environment. Due to the nature of work that takes place at a construction site, there is significant potential for injuries occurring if steps are not taken to prevent or remove hazards.

Workers at a construction site are entitled to feel safe when on the job. If an accident occurs and the construction company is found to have been negligent, injured parties may seek compensation through a personal injury claim. The construction company also has a duty of care toward workers or the general public who are traveling either on foot or in a vehicle near the site.

Construction Site Injuries

Despite mandatory safety regulations, accidents are still common on construction sites. There are so many potential dangers that injured parties may struggle to establish who, if anyone, is liable for injuries. You may suffer injury due to the negligence of an individual or an entity. In many cases, multiple parties share a percentage of liability in construction site injury cases.

Third parties such as property owners, manufacturers of machinery or contractors may contribute to creating a hazard that leads to an accident. It is in your best interests to consult with an experienced construction site injury lawyer if you have been hurt through no fault of your own.

Crane Accidents

Larger, stronger cranes have made it possible for us to build soaring skyscrapers. However, lifting equipment is potentially dangerous and may cause injuries or fatalities in an accident. At least a quarter of all construction site fatal accidents are likely to involve a crane or other lifting equipment. If negligence played a part in the accident, you may have a case for compensation against responsible parties.

Scaffolding Accidents

Scaffolding is a highly effective means of creating structures and platforms that allow workers to reach great heights. Unfortunately, scaffolding is also involved in a large percentage of construction site accidents. Falling off scaffolding, structures collapsing and being struck by falling debris or tools are common causes of injuries and fatalities. If scaffolding is not erected correctly, it can result in an unstable structure that does not meet reasonable safety standards.

Power Tool Accidents

Power tools are essential for completing various jobs on a construction site. If tools are defective, it may result in serious injuries or fatalities. Workers should also use necessary safety equipment such as goggles, safety gloves and hardhats when using power tools. Again, there are multiple parties who may share liability if you are injured by power tools on a construction site. You should consult with a personal injury lawyer who has experience in construction site accident cases.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
