Construction Accident Attorneys

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Nationwide

Construction jobs are among the most dangerous in the country, and thousands of workers are injured or killed every year in construction accidents. While the daily use of complex machinery, various chemical solvents and heavy tools certainly carries an inherent risk for harm, many construction accidents resulting in injuries are caused by negligence.

The Philadelphia personal injury attorneys at Golomb & Honik have more than three decades of experience recovering financial compensation for workers injured in construction accidents caused by inadequate safety precautions, faulty equipment and other negligent acts.

Causes of Construction Accidents

Construction sites are rife with hazards that can cause severe injury or death in the event of negligence. Common factors in construction accidents include:

  • Defective machinery
  • Electrocution
  • Falling objects
  • Fire
  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Ladder and scaffolding accidents
  • Safety device failure
  • Slip, trip and fall accidents
  • Toxic substance exposure
  • Unsafe working conditions

Depending on the circumstances of a construction accident, property owners, construction companies, contractors, equipment manufacturers and architects may be held accountable for negligence.

Construction Accident Injuries

As construction sites are more dangerous than the average workplace, construction accident injuries tend to be more severe than other types of workplace injuries. Common construction site injuries include:

  • Blindness
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Chemical and heat burns
  • Death
  • Injuries requiring amputation
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
