Kent Construction Site Accident Fall Attorneys

Working at a construction site can be very dangerous.  It’s important that safety standards be implemented in order to minimize the risk of accidents.  However, even if safety regulations are developed, construction workers can still suffer serious personal injury or wrongful death from resulting from falls at a construction site.

Fall Injuries

There are many ways construction site workers can be injured in falls. These include:

  • Falls from scaffolding, cranes and other equipment,
  • Falls from roofs and ladders,
  • Falls down elevator shafts, or
  • Falling from buildings under construction.

Devastating Injuries

Regardless of how the accident occurs, construction falls can lead to serious personal injury or death. Injuries can include severe head trauma and brain injury, broken bones, lacerations, and other trauma. Depending upon the severity of the fall, these injuries can be long-lasting and sometimes permanent. Fall injuries can not only affect the ability of the worker to engage in future construction employment, but, in the case of brain injury, can impair the construction worker to carry on a normal life.

Investigating The Cause of the Fall

As with other construction accidents, it’s important that a thorough investigation be undertaken in the event of serious injury or death as soon as possible after the accident. In some instances, it may be that the fall was caused by defective equipment, or by the failure of a company to ensure that its employees follow applicable safety standards.

We Help Washington Construction Workers

Washington law provides for worker’s compensation benefits to employees  injured on the job.  In addition to worker’s compensation benefits, if a worker is injured as the result of a third party, such as the maker of defective equipment, the worker may be entitled to bring a lawsuit against the third party.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been injured or killed in a construction site fall, call our personal  injury lawyers. We can help you understand your rights and the compensation that may be due to you as a result of the accident.  Our two partners have over 45 years of combined experience representing clients in personal injury matters, including those in which devastating construction injuries have occurred.

We fight vigorously in representing our clients and seek to obtain a fair settlement for their injuries. If a fair settlement is not offered by the defendants, we are prepared and seek to prove their case in court.
