Construction site injuries

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Nugent & Nugent, provide experienced representation for persons who have suffered personal injuries or wrongful death as a result of a construction site accident. Construction accidents can occur on residential property, commercial property, or at industrial construction sites. When someone is injured or killed on or near a construction site, the owner or general contractor or a subcontractor may be liable for any injuries sustained.

A construction site accident can be extremely serious, and may cause permanent disability, loss of a limb, blindness, head injury, fractured or broken bones, amputation, scarring, and wrongful death. Often the medical bills will be large, and there may be a long period of disability and lost wages. Worker's compensation may pay for some of the medical bills and lost earnings, but worker's compensation cannot adequately compensate an injured worker for permanent losses and disability arising from a serious construction accident.

Our attorneys represent workers or visitors who are injured in construction site accidents, drivers injured as a result of highway construction accidents, as well as construction site workers who are injured on the job. Our clients include laborers, carpenters, electricians, ironworkers, crane operators, plumbers, masons, painters, sheet metal workers, welders, heavy equipment operators, and all other construction trades. Under state and Federal laws and regulations, contractors and site owners are responsible for providing a reasonably safe work environment, and there are special laws in place to protect those who work in high places, such as on a scaffold, ladder or structural steel. Workers in all trades are exposed to a variety of dangerous conditions at worksites due to negligent and dangerous conditions and practices of architects, general contractors, subcontractors, product manufacturers, equipment suppliers, and others.
