Injured on the Job? Call Us 24/7 for a Free Consultation
Heavy machinery, tall scaffolds, caustic chemicals, electrical systems, and other hazards make construction one of the most dangerous jobs in the country.
Accidents involving any of these elements can cause catastrophic spine injuries, brain injuries, burns, limb amputations, fractures, or even death. When a contractor, subcontractor, or other party is negligent and fails to prioritize worker safety, they can be held liable for any injuries or deaths that result from their misconduct.
Construction accidents may be caused by the following:
- Violations of OSHA workplace safety standards
- Missing personal protective gear, such as hard hats or harnesses
- Outdated, old, and poorly maintained equipment
- Equipment that is missing safety components
Amputations, electrocutions, falls, and injuries caused by falling objects are common causes of injury and death at construction sites. If you or a loved one has been hurt at a construction site, or you have lost a loved one in a preventable construction accident, contact an Atlanta personal injury attorney at Kaufman Law, P.C.
You may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, and more.

Seeking Compensation After a Crane Accident
Among the many potential hazards at a construction site are large cranes. While cranes are an invaluable tool at job sites, they can also be extremely dangerous if they are not operated safely. Cranes cause dozens of accidents every year.
Causes of crane accidents include:
- Contact with electrical current
- Falling from a crane
- Being run over by a crane
- Being struck by an object that has fallen from a crane
An injury from a crane accident can potentially cost tens of thousands of dollars to treat or could cost the victim their life. In situations like these, it is important to consult with an attorney who can help you pursue the compensation you need.
Since there is a time limit for filing personal injury lawsuits in Georgia, we advise you to contact our firm as soon as possible in order to avoid losing your right to sue.
