Defining Construction Accidents

Construction accidents usually result in injury and are defined as occurring on a construction site. These accidents do not usually happen to the owners of construction companies, but to the blue-collar, front-line construction workers.  However, construction accidents can happen to anyone who is on the site, including visitors, employees, and uninvolved innocent onlookers or bystanders.  The most common construction site accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury often resulting from debris or tools falling from elevated locations, such as roofs, ladders, or scaffolding
  • Burn injuries
  • Sprains or strains, and other soft tissue injuries
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Workers being crushed by equipment or materials
  • Mechanical accidents due to improper operation or mechanical failure of construction tools
  • Slip and Fall caused by tripping over items left on the ground or falling from ladders or scaffolding

Who Should Compensate You for a Construction Accident?

Construction accidents can be caused by a multitude of issues, and the party to be held responsible depends on each individual scenario.  If a construction accident is caused by human error, we may seek to hold that person or his employer accountable.  If an accident is caused by a mechanical issue, we may seek to recover from the manufacturer, maintenance company, or owner of the machinery.  If a breach in rules and regulations causes an accident, we may seek to hold the employer accountable due to his failure to either put in place or enforce necessary precautions.

Working closely with a construction accident lawyer is, by far, the most important step to take to ensure you are properly compensated for your injuries.  We will also work to ensure that the right people are held accountable.

What Compensation Can Be Recovered for Damages Suffered as a Result of a Construction Accident?

Following a construction accident, an injured person can recover for a variety of damages. The damages you are able to recover ultimately depend upon the types and seriousness of your injuries. The court will also examine if the injured party’s own negligence was a significant factor.

A plaintiff injured in a construction site accident may receive damages of two types: economic and non-economic damages.

  • Economic damages are intended to cover financial loss caused by the accident; examples include medical bills and lost income.
  • Non-economic damages are intended to compensate a victim for different types of loss like pain and suffering or emotional distress.

Different types of personal injury compensation might include:

  • Compensation for bills paid related to the medical treatment of your injuries. These may include ER visits, nursing homes, or physical and occupational therapy. This often includes the costs of future medical treatment.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Emotional distress.  Damages recovered for anxiety, depression, or PTSD resulting from the injury.
  • Lost income and wages. If you’ve missed work because of your injuries, this form of compensation for lost wages will attempt to make you whole again.  You may also receive compensation for your future inability to work over the course of your lifetime.
  • Wrongful death.
  • Loss of consortium. These damages are intended to compensate family members for the loss they suffer when a victim is unable to provide the same companionship as before the accident.

A jury may also award a plaintiff punitive damages, which are intended to punish the behavior of the defendant that caused the injury.

How Hard is it to Prove a Construction Site Accident Case?

Have you suffered an injury from a construction site accident?  If so, you may be under the assumption that you are practically guaranteed compensation.  Regrettably, insurance companies and their lawyers are not that reasonable.  You may have to fight tooth and nail because the insurance company and opposing counsel will attempt to prove that your own negligence led to the accident.  Further, defendants and their representatives will assume and try to prove that you are exaggerating or entirely lying about your injuries.

Often, an insurance company will reach out to you early on and offer you pennies on the dollar for a quick settlement.  You should never accept this offer without first consulting your own attorney.  The insurance company wants to negotiate with you at your most vulnerable and least informed state of mind.  Imperatively, you should consult with one of our Columbia Construction Accident Attorneys whenever you suffer an injury at a construction site, whether employed on-site, visiting, or just passing by.

Hiring a Lawyer after Your Construction Site Accident

The Strom Law Firm’s Columbia Construction Accident Attorneys will not cost you anything until we collect compensation for your injuries.  We generally operate on a payment method called “contingent fee.” This means that we only get paid if you get paid.  After securing compensation on your behalf, we generally collect a predetermined percentage of your settlement or judgment.  Expenses pile up after a construction accident, and you do not need us to add to those expenses.  Contact the construction accident attorneys at Strom Law Firm today to allow us to get to work for you as soon as possible.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
A Winning Team at Strom Law Firm!
John Alphin was great. We basically worked together for 22 months. Bakari Sellers was also on the team and together those 2 guys were fabulous. Won the case and I’m still a client of Strom law firm. Thank you and awesome law firm.
