Seattle Attorneys Recovering Compensation For Injured Construction Workers
The construction industry is notoriously hazardous for workers of all varieties, including carpenters, concrete workers, bricklayers, roofers and others. Job sites and building projects typically represent large-scale investments with rigid deadlines. Even when workers are well-protected with helmets and hard-toe boots, they may be harmed in dangerous working conditions. The close proximity of humans to power tools, large machines, holes in the ground and tall structures sometimes leads to accidents and injuries.
Dubin Law Group is a well-trusted source of help for injured workers in the Seattle area. We have a proven track record and are prepared to pursue the highest available compensation for clients after construction accidents have resulted in serious or catastrophic injuries.
The Most Common Causes Of Construction Site Accidents
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the most common fatal accidents in the construction industry involve the following scenarios:
- Falling from heights and into holes such as basements or tripping over debris and other obstacles
- Suffering electrocutions as well as electrical shock injuries that ultimately culminate in death
- Being struck by dangling objects, falling objects and similar hazards
- Being caught in or caught between machines or structures
Workers’ compensation is not the only path to financial recovery after a serious or fatal construction accident. Investigations may reveal that third parties were responsible. A manufacturer may be liable when products such as tools were defective, for example. Attorney Matt Dubin and our entire team often find causes to bring third-party liability claims to supplement workers’ compensation. Attorneys at our firm represent workers injured through high-rise condominium construction projects, road building projects and other construction projects around Seattle.
