Our construction injury attorneys know how to assess the injuries and prospects for recovery. Specific areas of our construction law practice include:
- Injuries from falls — A fall from a scaffold can result in a serious, career-ending injury. Workers have died following a construction accident of this nature. Our job is to see that the negligent party is held accountable.
- Burn injuries — At Kraft Davies Olsson PLLC, we know that even the most experienced electricians can suffer shocks and burns or electrocution on a jobsite. Unsafe working conditions are usually the culprit, mandating that you retain experienced legal representation.
- Crane injuries — When crane safety is not made a priority by a construction company, workers can get badly hurt or killed. The inherent risks involved combined with negligence can spell disaster and an end to a productive career.
- Trench wall collapses — Physical and emotional damage can result from a frightening trench wall collapse. Many professionals rank them as one of the most harrowing types of construction accidents. If you have been hurt or traumatized in a trench wall collapse, do not hesitate to contact our firm for a free initial consultation.
- Construction site explosions — Dangerous conditions are common on construction sites. Add to that a lack of attention to basic safety procedures and you have a recipe for disaster.
- Construction site vehicle injuries — A rush to deliver materials or complete a project can result in vehicles moving too quickly on a construction site. The consequences of a dump truck injury can be deadly and fault may be placed on you. Let a seasoned construction accident attorney sort out the facts from the fiction.
- Construction falls — Scaffolding is only one of many places where a fall can occur on a construction site. Unsafe conditions can lead to falls from high places. In a split second, your career could end — and a life of pain and suffering lie ahead.
- Heavy equipment injuries — Heavy equipment is a fact of life on a construction site. However, when that equipment is poorly maintained or carelessly operated, you could suffer serious injuries.
