Holding Responsible Parties Accountable for Construction Injuries

injury on construction siteThe damage inflicted by construction accidents is often devastating to the victim and their family, both physically and financially. America is notorious for having exorbitant health care costs and paying for medical expenses can put entire families in debt. In addition, victims frequently have to pay for rehabilitation services, damaged property, and therapy. These costs pile up quickly and can become overwhelming. That’s why our Atlanta construction site accident lawyers will work to hold the party that was responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions.

When it comes to construction-related injuries, assigning fault can be a complex task that hinges on various factors specific to the incident. Determining liability involves careful examination of the circumstances surrounding the accident, including whether the injured party was an employee working at the time and if someone else’s actions or negligence contributed to the injury.

While it is often the case that responsibility falls on the property owner or the construction company, it’s important to note that this is not always the definitive outcome. Construction sites involve multiple parties, such as contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and equipment manufacturers, among others. Each entity may have a degree of responsibility for ensuring the safety of the workers and visitors.

To navigate the intricacies of construction accident claims and ascertain the appropriate course of action, it is advisable to seek guidance from an experienced Atlanta construction accident attorney. They possess the knowledge and expertise to assess your situation and help determine the type of claim that applies to your specific circumstances. By consulting with a legal professional, you can gain a clear understanding of your rights and the potential avenues for seeking compensation for your injuries and losses.

Several common construction accidents that we handle include:

  • Falls from scaffolding
  • Explosions and fires on worksites
  • Excavation accidents caused by heavy machinery
  • Collapsing cranes, malfunctioning machinery, and defective tools

Fatal Construction Accidents

Tragically, there are instances when construction site accidents result in the loss of workers’ lives. In such devastating circumstances, the surviving spouse or children may have the option to pursue a wrongful death claim. It’s important to note, however, that the availability of wrongful death claims depends on the classification of the deceased individual as an employee or an independent contractor.

If the deceased worker is classified as an employee, wrongful death claims may not be applicable, and instead, the surviving relative would typically file a claim through the workers’ compensation program. Workers’ compensation provides benefits to the family members of employees who have suffered fatal injuries while on the job, including financial assistance to help cope with the loss.

To understand the specific legal options and the appropriate course of action in such heartbreaking circumstances, seeking the advice of a knowledgeable attorney is crucial. An attorney with experience in construction accidents and wrongful death claims can provide guidance, support, and representation, ensuring that the surviving family members receive the assistance and compensation they may be entitled to under the law.

Every day, construction workers face a myriad of hazards as they build the infrastructure that serves our cities and communities. The heavy machinery, hazardous materials, and challenging environments often set the stage for potential accidents. While there are established safety protocols in place, the unpredictable nature of construction sites means that accidents can and do occur, sometimes with life-altering consequences.

Accidents on construction sites can be the result of a variety of factors, including equipment malfunction, inadequate safety measures, or the negligence of a colleague or supervisor. These accidents can lead to long-term disabilities, emotional trauma, and substantial financial burdens. Injuries from these accidents can range from cuts and bruises to spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even fatalities.

Hall & Lampros, LLP recognizes the profound impact that these accidents have on victims and their families. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that victims receive the justice they deserve. We understand that no amount of compensation can undo the physical and emotional trauma suffered, but it can certainly help ease the financial burdens and provide a sense of justice.

Our legal team works closely with industry experts to thoroughly investigate each case and gather all the necessary evidence. Our meticulous approach helps us build strong cases that maximize the potential compensation for our clients.

Construction accidents can disrupt lives, but with the right legal representation, victims can seek justice and begin the process of healing and rebuilding. Let Hall & Lampros, LLP be your partner in this journey.

FAQs:

What should I do immediately after a construction accident?

Answer: Seek medical attention immediately, even if you feel fine. Next, report the accident to your supervisor and document everything, including taking pictures and getting contact information of any witnesses. Then, contact a construction accident attorney to guide you through the next steps.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a construction accident?

Answer: The statute of limitations varies by state, but it’s essential to act quickly. In Georgia, you typically have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Can I sue if I was partially at fault for the construction accident?

Answer: It depends on the state’s laws. In Georgia, you can still recover damages if you’re less than 50% at fault, but your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

What types of compensation can I receive for a construction accident?

Answer: Victims can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, rehabilitation costs, and more. In the case of wrongful death, families can also seek funeral expenses and loss of consortium.

Do I need an attorney if my employer offers me a settlement?

Answer: Yes, it’s always advisable to consult with an attorney before accepting any offer. An experienced construction accident lawyer can ensure that you’re getting a fair deal that accounts for all current and future expenses related to the accident.
