Job Site Injury Claims

Construction sites are dangerous places. Despite state and local safety regulations, workers are seriously injured and killed in construction-related accidents far too often.

Construction accident claims are legally complex. It takes an experienced lawyer to sort out liability among all the parties involved and quantify the injured person’s right to financial compensation.

 

Help for Injured Construction Workers

The attorneys of Goldberg, Goldberg & Janoski have achieved positive results for people injured in construction accidents claims. If you were injured in any type of construction accident, please contact us to discuss your case. It costs you nothing to learn if we can help.

We represent people injured in a wide range of construction-related accidents, including those involving:

  • Scissor-lift trucks and bucket trucks
  • Construction vehicles
  • Falls from scaffolding, ladders or roofs
  • Trench collapses

  • Cranes and forklifts
  • Power tools
  • Falling objects
  • Explosions
  • Toxic chemicals

Who Is Responsible?

Our lawyers will listen as you describe how you were injured and ask you questions about what happened. Then we will identify the liable party or parties. A construction worker cannot sue his or her employer, and benefits are generally limited to workers compensation. However, many construction accidents are caused by other parties — other subcontractors, the general contractor, the building or property owner, or the manufacturer of a defective product may bear responsibility. Because of the legal relationships among all the parties as well as their multiple insurers, it is important to be represented by a law firm that understands complex business relationships as well as personal injury litigation.

Please contact our law firm if you have been injured by any type of dangerous product, including:

  • Cribs, car seats, toys and other products for children
  • Industrial machinery and equipment
  • Power tools
  • Household appliances
  • Cosmetics
  • Clothing
  • Auto components, including tires, seat belts and air bags

A product can be defective in several ways. A bad product design can be the source of the problem. A defect can be introduced during the manufacturing process. A marketing defect, such as incorrect labeling or false advertising, can lead to easily avoided injuries.

Preserve the Evidence

If you have been injured by a defective product, it is essential that you maintain possession of the product that harmed you so that it can be examined for defects. We will send the product to an expert who can assess whether and in what way it was defective. If the product was destroyed in the accident, we will work to locate an identical version of the product for testing.

Not every law firm has the resources and skill to take on major manufacturers and their insurance companies. We have what it takes to stand up on behalf of injured people and succeed in these challenging cases.
