Construction Site Accident Lawyer
Construction is the United States’ largest industry, and unfortunately, construction site and industrial accidents kill and injure thousands of workers each year. Despite legal and trade provisions in place to prevent construction and industrial accidents, one out of every ten construction workers suffers some kind of work injury.
At Altemus & Wagner, our construction site accident lawyers fight to obtain justice and just compensation for victims of workplace injuries.
Altemus & Wagner helps victims of:
- Scaffolding, Crane, Derrick, Conveyor, Ladder, Winch, Grater, Scraper, Backhoe, and Boiler Accidents
- Electric Shock
- Trench Collapse
- Fire and Explosion
- Highway Vehicle Accidents
- Compressed Gases Accidents
- Welding Accidents
- And others
Workers’ Compensation Is Not Always Adequate
Although most injured workers will be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits, these benefits will not cover all of the expenses faced by an injured worker and generally do not cover pain and suffering and the full range of damages available to the loved ones of a worker who is killed in an accident.
When a construction site or industrial accident occurs, responsibility for the personal injury can be attributed to various individuals or businesses, including the owners, contractors and subcontractors, engineers, electricians, scaffolding companies, architects, insurance companies, and equipment manufacturers.
To get justice in workplace accident cases, a construction site accident lawyer must have knowledge of federal and state regulations governing construction and industrial sites. Our construction accident law firm, Altemus & Wagner, has the experience to inspect worksites, preserve evidence, and identify and question critical witnesses.
Since, most of the time, injured victims will suffer some form of loss (be it income, physical, emotional, or other), our legal system provides for compensation. However, the law only provides a limited time within which to pursue your claim, so you should contact us right away. If you wait too long, you will be forever barred from pursuing your claim.
