One of the riskiest areas for injury are construction sites. Because so many serious injuries come from construction sites, some of our largest cases have involved work place accidents.
Falling from heights, tripping, falling objects, and heavy equipment accidents, are known dangers at work sites. These work place dangers have caused countless accidents that maim, seriously injure, and/or kill people.
Although employees cannot sue their own employers for negligence if they receive Labor and Industry payments, there are many other cases which can be investigated involving serious workplace injury. Accidents involving visitors to worksites, inspectors, delivery business people, and family members are actionable and viable cases. Sometimes employees are injured by the negligence of some other third party. For example, we helped an injured employee who was electrocuted at a worksite due to the negligence of the power company, which knew their lines were dangerous yet failed to protect their electrified lines for the safety of those performing work in the area.
