Atlanta Construction Accident Laywer

Dedicated to Achieving the Outcome You Deserve

Injured on the job? Learn more about your rights!

According to statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1 out of every 10 construction workers in Georgia will be involved in an accident. In fact, every year 10% of these workers file a report for a work-related injury or a family member files for wrongful death benefits because of a construction-related fatality. Out of all the workers injured in construction accidents, more than 50% of them require ongoing medical care and treatment for an extended period of time.

Your employer has a responsibility to ensure your well-being by taking reasonable measures to provide safety equipment and necessary training. Similarly, manufacturers have a responsibility to design reasonably safe products. Should they fail to do so, you would have the right to seek damages for any harm that you suffer as a result. While you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits after a construction accident, it may not cover all of the losses you have suffered.

Explore your legal options with an Atlanta construction accident lawyer by contacting the team at Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. for a free case evaluation. We are available to discuss your case 24/7!

Call 404-882-6810 today to discuss your case for free. No charge until you win!

Types of Construction Accidents in Georgia

The nature of construction work automatically places workers in dangerous situations, and there are several ways that an accident can occur. In some cases, accidents are directly related to defective equipment, safety violations, inadequate training, or poor maintenance on equipment. It is a sad fact that many accidents are completely avoidable and are often the result of negligence, laziness, or carelessness. In the unfortunate event that you or a loved one is injured in an accident, you must take action immediately to preserve any evidence you need and to file a claim before it is too late.

We can handle cases related to any of the following construction accidents:

  • Falls from scaffolding or ladders
  • Cave-in or excavation collapses
  • Chemical and toxic exposure
  • Injuries from falling objects
  • Forklift or crane accidents
  • Electrocution / electrical burns
  • Injuries from equipment failure

Determining Who Is Liable for Your Injuries

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a government agency that has implemented strict safety standards for workplaces like construction sites. Through these regulations, they hope to prevent employers from circumventing or disregarding necessary safety protocols.

While you may not be able to bring legal action against your direct employer or supervisor if you have claimed workers’ comp benefits – since this is a no-fault insurance system – third parties like products manufacturers, property owners, and subcontractors are not exempt from liability. This means that, in addition to recovering workman’s comp, you could pursue a claim against a negligent third party for additional damages (i.e. pain and suffering).

Similarly, if you can establish that your employer had intentionally, recklessly or illegally put you in harm’s way, you would have the right to refuse workers’ compensation benefits and file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer. Each case will be different, however, so it may be in your best interest to discuss your claim with an Atlanta construction injury attorney before making any decisions about how to proceed.
