Construction Site Accidents

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction is the most dangerous industry to work in. Every year in the United States, nearly 1,000 workers are injured while on the job. There are, in addition, tens of thousands of injuries; by some estimates, nearly one in 10 construction workers is hurt in a workplace accident.

The Roberts Law Firm, P.A., was established to provide legal support to injured construction workers and their families. We have earned a reputation for obtaining financial relief for our clients - both through workers' compensation claims and, when possible, through third-party personal injury claims as well.

Getting compensation is not a straightforward task. Employers and insurance companies alike are aggressive in their effort to challenge and deny claims. That's why it is important to work closely with an attorney in such matters. We fight on our clients' behalf. Our aim is to secure compensation not just for medical bills, but for lost wages, pain and suffering, ongoing care and any related concerns.

"The Big Four" Causes Of Injury And Death

A construction site injury can happen in any number of ways. Still, some are more common than others. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has identified four leading causes of worker injuries and fatalities:

  • Falls
  • Electrocution
  • Struck-by-object
  • Caught-in/between

A significant number of injuries are also caused by machinery malfunction and on-site or on-the-clock driving accidents.

The lawyers at our firm are skilled in identifying the exact causes of an accident, and ensuring that the responsible parties are held to account.
