Handling Construction Accident Injuries

contextual Image

Construction sites are rife with hazards. Even the most experienced and careful construction workers get injured when the equipment, the working conditions or the people around them are unsafe.

If you were injured in construction work, you are not necessarily limited to workers' compensation benefits. While it's true you can't sue your employer, you may have a personal injury lawsuit against a third party who caused or contributed to your injuries.

The Wozniak Law Group, P.C., handles construction accident litigation in Worcester County and surrounding counties of Massachusetts. We have been successful in claims against property owners and other third parties to compensate for the physical damage and economic loss.

Job Injuries At Construction Sites

Our legal team has obtained notable recoveries in construction injury cases through our proactive and persistent efforts. We obtained a $1.8 million verdict for an HVAC technician who suffered disabling back injuries while carrying construction materials down an exterior stairway at the job site. At trial, we demonstrated that the property owner was responsible for a badly worn stair tread, which triggered the fall and a missing handrail, which prevented the worker from catching himself.

We are familiar with all types of construction equipment accidents and construction-related injuries, including:

  • Falls from roofs and heights
  • Ladder and scaffolding accidents
  • Slip-and-falls
  • Building collapse or trench cave-in
  • Heavy equipment accidents (crane, backhoe, forklift, etc.)
  • Power tools (saws, nail guns, etc.)
  • Explosions and fires
  • Electrical shock injuries
  • Failed safety equipment
  • Vehicle accidents (on site or between job sites)
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Burns or toxic exposure from chemicals
