Some of the most dangerous industries in the world are those that we rely on for everyday services and convenience. Among these are construction jobs that can leave workers permanently injured or result in fatalities.
Many of the life-changing injuries suffered on construction sites are avoidable. No employee should ever go to work and expect to come home with significant injuries – or never come home at all. When an employer or other entity fails to provide adequate workplace protections, it is time to seek legal advice.
Conley Griggs Partin is a law firm that offers contingency based representation, including a free initial consultation, in Atlanta and South Georgia. We are committed to fighting hard for construction workers just like you.
Heavy Equipment Injuries
Working with heavy equipment on a construction site is fraught with risk. The machinery you use should be regularly maintained so that it is in good working order. Additionally, all employees should hold certifications, licensing and any other relevant professional requirements for using such equipment.
Where there is no industry requirements for equipment use, you may still have a case for compensation if you suffer injury during the course of your duties. When discussing an accident with a personal injury lawyer, do not assume that you have no legal recourse.
Falling Objects or Debris
On a typical construction site, a large number of specialists are working together and in collaboration at any given time. The potential for mistakes is therefore increased for workers. When falling objects or debris cause injury or death, it is more than a tragic accident in many cases.
Knowing the difference between a tragic, unavoidable accident and negligence is not the responsibility of the victim. If you are suffering from serious injuries or have lost a loved one in a construction accident, consulting with a personal injury lawyer can bring some closure.
