Construction Accident Injuries

Wherever you go in the Atlanta area, you are bound to see construction sites. Cranes, heavy equipment, scaffolding and other dangers are common on these sites, often leading to catastrophic injuries. Both workers and bystanders can be seriously injured in construction site accidents, resulting in disabilities, dismemberment and even death. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a construction accident, you need to know your legal rights.

The majority of construction accident injuries impact the workers on the site. There are strict safety standards that are regulated by OSHA and other government entities to reduce hazards on job sites. However, there are some construction companies that take shortcuts to increase profits, jeopardizing employee safety. Catastrophic injuries can occur due to negligent safety standards on a construction site. Injured workers should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance in Georgia. While workers cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against their employer if they are covered by insurance, a lawyer can help fight to receive the maximum compensation.

Types of Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites are dangerous by nature. Heavy equipment is used, obstacles litter the job site and materials are constantly being moved. Safety measures can reduce the risk of injury. When deadlines and budget become more important than safety, shortcuts can lead to serious accidents. Some common construction accidents that are responsible for catastrophic injuries and death include:

  • Crane accidents
  • Electrical shock and burns
  • Explosions
  • Falling materials
  • Falls
  • Heavy equipment crushing accidents
  • Scaffolding collapse

While workers are the most likely to be injured by an unsafe construction site, bystanders can also be in danger.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
