Construction Site Injuries

Construction Site InjuriesConstruction-related injuries can involve something as small as a nail or as large as a building blast. Workers are constantly exposed to many risks, including possible falls, falling objects, structure collapses, electrocution and injuries from heavy equipment. The possible dangers on any given construction site are innumerable, especially when multiple contractors are working on one site.

If you or a loved one has been injured on a construction site, do not count on workers' compensation benefits alone. Workers' compensation often does not cover all the losses that a worker experiences due to an injury. An experienced lawyer in your corner makes a world of difference.

At The Sams Law Firm, we can help you explore options for recovery from a variety of injuries. We understand that construction workers face many challenging situations, and we know that seeking representation with an attorney can be a difficult decision. It is your most important decision, however. We can provide you with a full independent investigation into the cause and circumstances of your injury. We collaborate with medical, economic and construction experts to establish the full value of your case and evaluate evidence in our pursuit of your maximum deserved compensation, including:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability/long-term care

Georgia Construction Accident Attorney

A personal injury sustained on a construction site should be taken very seriously. Dangers on the work site created by contractors and subcontractors whom you are not employed by can pose serious risks. Even if your injury is covered or partially covered by workers' compensation, you might have an underlying personal injury claim for further damages. We can help you evaluate all your options and protect your rights.

Gathering the evidence necessary to support your claim, working with OSHA and examining construction law related to your claim, we can handle a variety of situations, including:

  • Falls from heights
  • Falls in holes
  • Explosions, blasting buildings and burn injuries
  • Falling-object injuries
  • Scaffolding falls
  • Defective construction equipment and machinery
  • Electrocution
