Construction Accidents

Construction sites are dangerous places, even when workers do what they are supposed to. When employers or general contractors cut corners and ignore safety measures, serious injuries and death are a far too common result. Walker Wallace PLC in Louisville aggressively pursues financial damages for clients injured in construction accidents. With decades of combined experience in negotiations and courtroom battles, our lawyers know how to develop a reliable blueprint that steers your case toward the best outcome.

A warning about the dangers on a construction site

Working on a construction project can bring immense satisfaction at the end of the day. You can see the progress you are making toward a finished project. Chasing deadlines and cutting costs, however, are a recipe for disaster. When site managers fail to enforce safety standards, workers may suffer from serious damages, such as brain injuries , spinal cord injuries and even death. Typical accidents on construction sites include:

  • Slips and fall accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Roof-related falls
  • Elevator falls
  • Holes in flooring
  • Welding accidents
  • Burns
  • Electrocutions

If you are involved in a construction site accident, it is important to see a doctor. The workplace injury you suffer may not be immediately apparent and could become worse if you continue to work.

Devastating injuries suffered in construction accidents

With a large number of people doing different hazardous jobs, miscommunication on a construction site can jeopardize people’s lives without warning. When accidents happen, they often cause serious injuries, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burns
  • Eye injuries
  • Hearing loss
  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Lung damage from exposure to toxic chemicals

If you are injured, be sure to file a report with your supervisor and safety officer. At Walker Wallace PLC, we investigate construction accidents to identify negligent actions by supervisors and other workers to ascertain liability for your injuries.
