Common Construction Site RISKS

Construction sites can involve hundreds of people working with massive equipment and heavy materials. We can pursue financial compensation in construction site cases involving:


Construction workers often work on high scaffolding or around large pits. When a worker falls because a construction site lacked adequate safety features, it may be grounds for a premises or professional liability claim.

Crush injuries

At a construction site, thousands of pounds of building materials can be moved on a daily basis. These materials may be stacked haphazardly or transported from one area of the job site to another with minimal safety precautions.

Slips and Trips

Wires, cords, rebar, and slick oils and liquids can pose a tripping risk, particularly if an individual is carrying heavy building materials by hand. If you slipped on a construction site, or a loved one was injured due to a slip-and-fall injury, we can help you pursue compensation.

Moving Heavy Loads

Transporting heavy loads by hand not only increases your risk of slipping and falling, but your risk for back and muscle injury as well. Construction workers who are tasked with lugging large loads around by hand often suffer debilitating injures. Occasionally, these injuries are so severe that the employee is no longer able to work.

Improper Working Positions

Construction workers are often tasked with operating in confined spaces. Unfortunately, this can cause a great deal of strain on the muscles and bones. If you pulled a muscle or suffered a back injury because of a poor working station, we can help you file a claim against the parties responsible.

Being Struck by a Vehicle

From pickup trucks to bulldozers, construction sites are full of large machines that can injure, maim, and kill if they are used improperly. If you were struck by a vehicle on the job site, we can assist you in filing a personal injury claim.

Hand Tools

Saws, drills, hammers, and other hand tools should be operated with care. However, if a hand tool malfunctions or lacks proper instructions, it may be possible to file a product liability claim against the tool's manufacturer or designer.

Inhalation of Dust

Unfortunately, many construction workers suffer injuries years, or even decades, after their work. The slow and constant inhalation of dust particles, insulation strands, chemicals, and other hazards can cause lung cancer and other medical conditions.

Exposure to Dangerous Substances

Just as inhaling substances over an extended period of time poses a medical risk, being directly exposed to dangerous substances can harm your health too. During work on a construction site, a worker may be exposed to a wide range of chemical and biological agents. This may include gases, oils, sewage and other natural materials, and more.

Loud Noises

Sudden or constant loud noises can cause hearing loss and deafness. If you have been rendered unable to work because of a hearing deficiency that you suffered on the job, our team of attorneys can see to it that you recover the maximum amount of compensation.
