Why Construction Accidents are Common in the United States

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), more than 20 percent of all fatalities in the workplace in 2018 were construction-related. Coined as the “fatal four,” construction accidents fall into four main categories: falls, being struck by an object, electrocutions, and being caught between equipment or a collapsing structure. These four types of accidents accounted for nearly 60 percent of construction worker deaths in 2018.

      Challenges of a Construction Accident Claim

      Determining who is liable for your construction accident can be extremely difficult. Construction sites involve several parties, all of which are employed by diverse companies. This fact makes these cases more complex, often requiring rigorous investigation to determine whether the general contractor or subcontractors are responsible for your injuries.

      You Shouldn’t Have to Settle for a Lower Settlement. We’ll Fight for Your Maximum Compensation.

      We understand that money matters. You have bills to pay, a family to support, and dreams to realize. That’s why we will not stop until you recover the compensation you need to put your life back on track. When selecting an attorney to represent you in your case, experience is only half of the equation. You also need an attorney who will be willing to go the distance — and a few steps beyond — to meet your needs. These are a few ways our construction accident attorneys will ensure you have a successful outcome.
      • Provide medical referrals—The aftermath of a construction accident can take a toll on your body as well as your finances. Expensive medical costs are responsible for more than half of the bankruptcies filed in the United States. OPO has an expansive network of doctors and medical professionals who can provide you with treatment at no upfront costs.
      • Handle negotiations with insurance companies—Claimants who don’t have representation leave themselves vulnerable to insurance company scare tactics. The primary goal for many insurance companies is profit, so they will often make a lower settlement offer to maintain their revenues. Having the assistance of a construction accident attorney will help you avoid haggling with insurance adjusters over the terms of your settlement.
      • Determine liability so all negligent parties are held responsible—Proving who is at fault in a construction accident can be a lengthy process. It involves activities such as obtaining accident reports from law enforcement, retrieving medical records, gathering relevant evidence, and identifying witnesses — all of which can be time-consuming. Our construction accident attorneys will conduct all aspects of the investigation for your claim, so you can focus on the healing process and maintaining your quality of life.
