Construction accidents happen and construction workers have the right to pursue compensation when they are injured on the job. While other types of workers may pursue workers’ compensation, construction workers are able to pursue a personal injury claim in order to obtain maximum compensation. These are not lawsuits against the injured worker’s employer, but against the general contractor, the owner of the building or another party that is responsible for the accident.
At Kammholz Rossi PLLC, our Rochester-based construction accident attorneys have decades of experience that we use to help people like you.
Safety Should Never Be Set Aside
On construction sites, as in many other workplaces, there is a focus on simply getting the work done. There may be bonuses on the line for getting jobs done early or financial losses at risk for jobs that go on too long. All of this creates an environment in which safety is set aside. Training is not provided when necessary. If the right equipment is not available, there is no attempt to try to get it. Safety measures are ignored because they are time-consuming.
More often than not, it is the general contractor’s duty to make certain that the proper equipment is available, including safety equipment. That is why the general contractor is often the target in construction accident cases. We hold general contractors and any other negligent parties accountable for injuries to construction workers.
Our construction accident lawyers handle all types of accident cases, including:
- Falls from elevated heights
- Trench collapses
- Falling objects
- Demolition accidents
- Ladder fall accidents
We handle all cases, including those involving commercial and residential construction, remodeling, renovation and new construction.
