Vehicle Accidents On Duty In Construction Work
We have handled every scenario of construction site accidents, including:
- Ground workers struck by vehicles
- Collisions involving dump trucks and cement trucks
- Collisions involving supply trucks
- Pickup and personal vehicle accidents at job sites
- Traffic crashes while traveling between construction jobs
- Crane accidents
- Forklift and man-lift accidents
- Skid loader, backhoe and excavation accidents
- Other machinery and equipment accidents
- Aerial lift accidents (tip-overs, control problems)
You are not restricted to workers’ compensation for an on-duty accident, although we work to ensure you receive employer-paid medical and wage loss benefits or maximum pay for any lasting disability that prevents you from returning to work.
Beyond workers’ comp, we explore all possible personal injury or wrongful death claims against third parties for negligence, product liability or reckless disregard for safety, including:
- Heavy equipment manufacturers
- Property owners
- General contractors
- Construction managers
- Equipment rental companies
- “Civilian” motorists
A personal injury lawsuit allows for damages beyond the limits of workers’ comp, including full replacement of projected earnings and benefits, and compensation for pain and suffering.
Our lawyers investigate instances of OSHA violations that lead to accidents. When OSHA violations are uncovered, it can strengthen our clients’ cases.
