A construction site accident can leave you with many serious hardships, including steep medical bills. If your injury keeps you out of work, you may wonder how you will be able to keep up with bills and provide for your loved ones.
At Bordas & Bordas, our attorneys have extensive experience handling construction accident claims for clients throughout the Ohio Valley. We have a proven record of results obtaining favorable verdicts and settlements for people injured in construction accidents and other workplace injuries. Jim Bordas' very first trial case out of law school in 1973, handled along with George Dougherty of Charleston, West Virginia, recovered a substantial six-figure verdict on behalf of Brice Riggs, an injured worker who was struck in the shoulder by a piece of metal that fell from a cement mixer as it was being raised by a crane in a construction area.
Have You Been Injured at the Construction Site?
Construction workers face some of the most dangerous working conditions of any occupation. Property owners and general contractors are responsible for making their construction sites safe for workers. Violations of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules and failure to perform safety inspections can lead to serious personal injuries and even wrongful death.
Common causes of construction site injuries include:
- Scaffolding collapses
- Defective equipment
- Falls from heights
- Trench collapses
- Electrical accidents
- Gas explosions
Our attorneys will work to help you pursue all avenues of compensation for your construction site injury. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim in addition to workers' compensation benefits.
