Helping Injured Construction Workers Get the Compensation They Need
A construction site is a dangerous place to work. Contractors and subcontractors from different companies are often trying to complete tasks at the same time. When you combine numerous workers with heavy machinery, unsafe scaffolds and other potential hazards, it is hardly surprising that so many construction site workers suffer significant injuries and sometimes death.
For more than 70 years, the law firm of Garland, Samuel & Loeb in Atlanta has been representing Georgia injury victims who have been harmed in accidents involving the recklessness or carelessness of others. Our personal injury lawyers have tried or settled numerous civil cases, obtaining judgments of more than $9 million* for clients.
Going Beyond Workers’ Compensation
If you are injured due to unsafe equipment, a careless contractor, a dangerous property condition or other negligence, you may be entitled to compensation beyond workers’ compensation. These are sometimes called “third-party liability” cases because they involve negligence of someone other than you or your employer.
The following are examples of construction site accidents that may involve third-party liability:
- Dropped objects or falling debris
- I-beam accidents and falls
- Collapsing scaffolds
- Ladder falls
- Forklift rollovers
- Crane accidents
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Defective tools and products
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Roof or floor collapses
- Serious injuries
- Wrongful death
With thousands of hours of experience in the courtroom, our trial attorneys are fully prepared to take our clients’ cases to court. When litigation is not in a client’s best interest, however, we draw upon our legal knowledge and creativity to develop innovative solutions and carefully negotiate out-of-court settlements.
