Coming from families who built this country with hard work, we at Mizani Law Firm understand and value the rights of every American construction worker. They are exposed to heavy machinery and dangerous chemicals everyday and yet they still risk their lives and strive to provide for their families. Regardless of the size, whether the construction site accident happened in a home remodeling or in a road expansion project, employees who suffered workplace injuries deserve to be compensated properly.
Falls – When a worker falls from a great height while on a ladder, scaffolding, crane, roof, balcony, to name a few;
Electrocution – When the accident is related to exposed or faulty electrical wires or power lines;
Burn – When a victim suffers third to fourth degree burns from fire, welding, or explosion which could lead to serious injuries beyond the skin;
Chemical Accidents and Exposure – When a worker’s sickness or injury is caused by exposure to lethal chemicals and toxins i.e. asbestos or high lead content; many chemical accident victims tend to realize the damage done through time when they develop respiratory and skin diseases or cancer;
Slip and Fall – When an individual slips, trips, or falls because of a safety hazard while on the job;
Falling Objects – When tools or debris in a construction site fall on one of the workers, which can result to serious brain and spinal injuries; When a worker is caught between walls, a pillar or attached part of the property falls and hits him/her, or any accident involving trench or building collapses;
Equipment Related Accidents – When a worker gets injured from operating heavy machinery (i.e. backhoe, crane, forklift, to name a few) or using power tools (i.e. drills, hammers, saws, and others);
Repetitive Motion Injuries – When a person is injured or hurt from overstraining muscles while doing repetitive motions, working under high heat or low temperature for a long period of time, or overusing his/her muscles and joints.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – When a worker gets traumatized or suffers other mental health conditions brought by a traumatic event in the workplace, i.e. death or injury of fellow employee.
Workers’ Compensation Claim – The employee only has to prove that the injury happened in the construction site in order to claim the benefits of workers’ compensation insurance. However, more often than not the claims will not include future lost wages.
Personal Injury Claim – Going beyond insurance claims, the employee needs to prove that his/her injury was caused by negligence of a third party, i.e. subcontractor or vendor.
Product Liability – If the injury is caused by a faulty equipment or sub-standard material, the injured party can file a lawsuit against the distributor, manufacturer, retailer, wholesaler, or any party responsible for the distribution of the said product.
Wrongful Death – The death of the aggrieved employee does not mean the end of the construction site accident case. The victim’s family can file this type of suit in his/her behalf.

If you or a loved one has recently suffered from an injury caused by a construction site accident, NOW is the best time to call a lawyer and represent you. It is important for a personal injury attorney to act fast in order to properly investigate and gather witnesses and documentation. Many problems during investigation arise from missing or tampered evidence. Prevent this by having a lawyer on your side right away.
It is best to inform your employers and your direct superior of what happened in the accident. Reporting the accident in the work place will help documentation in the future and validate your claims in court or with the insurance provider.
