Construction Accidents
Denver Injury Attorneys

man holding yellow helmet | construction accidents | Denver injury lawyerConstruction sites are extremely dangerous places to work. In fact, construction workers are employed in one of the most dangerous fields in America. Did you know that one in ten construction workers are injured every year? Did you also know that falls are the greatest cause of fatal construction injuries? The majority of these fatal falls occurred when construction workers fell off of roofs or scaffolds. And sadly, many of these falls were preventable. After being injured in a construction accident, it is in your best interest to speak to a Denver injury lawyer for help.

Types of Construction Accidents

In addition to falls, construction site accidents include:

  • Electrocution
  • Forklift accidents
  • Poorly designed construction equipment
  • Crane accidents
  • Saw or power tools accidents
  • Burns
  • Explosions
  • And more

Third Party Construction Accident Cases

There are often numerous companies working on a construction site simultaneously. There may be the initial general contractor and several sub-contractors all performing their jobs and tasks. When another subcontractor or equipment manufacturing company is responsible for your injury, you may be entitled to file a third party construction accident lawsuit. You can obtain compensation from this lawsuit in addition to any worker’s compensation you are receiving.

When multiple parties are responsible for your injury, your Denver injury lawyer will need to perform a thorough investigation of the construction site, witness statements, evidence, and medical records. This investigation is crucial to building a case against a third party, such as a sub-contractor or the manufacturer of a power tool.

If you have been injured on the job – it is often difficult to know where to turn for help. Worker’s compensation may cover you and your injury, but if a third party is to blame, you will need a personal injury lawyer on your side. It is important to coordinate both the third party claim and the workers’ compensation claim. Our firm will work closely with your workers’ compensation attorney to ensure that both claims are handled properly. If you do not have a workers’ compensation attorney, we can refer you to one. Call our law firm today for a free consultation.

Who Can be Held Liable for a Construction Accident?

Anyone who works on the construction site or who manufactures a product or tool on a construction site could be held liable for your accident and injury. Negligent parties could include:

  • General and sub-contractors
  • Prime contractors
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Manufacturers
  • Construction site owner
