Atlanta Construction Accident Lawyer
Construction workers play a vital role in building the infrastructure of our city. These workers have a hand in building our homes, places of business, and other structures. Construction work can be a very rewarding career, but it also comes with serious dangers.
The construction field puts works in constant danger that can be difficult to understand. In fact, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reported that construction workers made up 20% of all worker deaths in the year 2016.
If you were injured in a construction accident, you deserve compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other losses. Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert & Prieto, LLC’s team of Atlanta construction accident lawyers can help you fight for the damages you need.
Common Types of Construction Accidents in Atlanta
The construction industry comes with many dangers that workers have to face every day. OSHA has identified the four most dangerous accidents faced by constructions workers as:
- Being Struck by an Object
- Being Caught Between or Crushed by Objects or Equipment
Many construction accidents involve scaffolding and cranes. Construction workers may fall off roofs and ladders. Innocent workers can be exposed to dangerous chemicals. We have also seen workers injured due to cave-ins or the collapse of walls or trenches.
These accidents can result in a wide variety of injuries, including:
- Lacerations and Burns
- Bone Fractures and Amputation
- Injuries to the Neck and Back
- Injuries to Internal Organs
- Paralysis and Brain Injuries
You are not alone if you are injured in a construction accident. We understand your situation and we know what it takes to help you get the compensation you need to recover from any accident involving a construction job.
Construction Accidents and Workers Comp
The workers compensation system allows individuals who are injured on the job to seek some degree of compensation. In many cases, you can file a workers comp claim after a construction accident to receive payments until you are healthy enough to return to your job.
However, workers comp claims do not always provide sufficient compensation after a serious injury. Furthermore, the workers comp system will not address any pain or suffering you experience and it may not permit you to see the doctors you need to visit to address your injuries. You could even be fired while receiving workers comp.
Fortunately, you have additional legal options after a building accident, which can include:
Personal Injury Claims
You can file a personal injury claim if you are injured on the job due to someone else’s negligence. We can help establish fault in your case so you can get the damages you deserve.
Product Liability Claims
Individuals who are injured due to faulty equipment or tools may be able to file a product liability claim. Our legal team can pursue product liability suits to make sure you are treated fairly in the court system.
Wrongful Death Claims
In especially serious situations, a construction accident can lead to the death of a loved one. While nothing can bring back the individual you lost, you do have legal options to get compensation after this type of horrific accident.
