Indianapolis Construction Accident Lawyer and Work Site Injury Attorney

Choosing an Indianapolis construction site accident lawyer can be one of the most important decisions you ever make. In most instances the injuries suffered on a work site are often traumatic and life-altering, meaning it's possible that you'll require a lifetime of medical care.

In addition to construction workers that suffer serious injury, we also meet with families who have lost a family member to a fatal work-related incident. If you are considering filing a wrongful death act on behalf of a loved one, having an experienced Indianapolis construction accident lawyer will be absolutely critical to receiving full and appropriate compensation. 

Common Construction Site Dangers

Construction workers are all too familiar with the dangers that exist on a work site, but due to the nature of the job, even the most responsible worker is subject to everyday dangers. In most instances, our clients who were hurt on a work site were the victim of a mechanical malfunction, a subcontractor's unwillingness to provide proper safety gear, and/or another worker's negligence. 

Specifically, we receive calls and/or have represented injured workers that were hurt as a result of a vast variety of construction site accidents, including:

  • Defective or collapsing scaffolds
  • Falls from/through roofs or other high structures
  • Electrocutions
  • Ladder injuries
  • Collapsing of walls or floors
  • Crane accidents
  • Defective hoists
  • Conveyor malfunction
  • Tractor injuries
  • Forklift accidents
  • Mining accidents
  • Elevator shaft falls
  • Defective rope or cable

The list of potential construction site dangers is endless, and if you don't see the cause of your injury above, it doesn't mean that you don't have a case. The best way to determine whether or not you may have a lawsuit is to speak with a qualified Indianapolis work site injury attorney.

Construction Site Injury Liability

Free Construction Site Injury GuidebookBecause more than one company is often working at the same construction site, determining who is at fault for your accident and injury can be complex. A large number of construction site accidents could likely have been prevented through the proper enforcement of safety practices. Law dictates that every construction worker be properly trained to safely and effectively operate work site machinery and tools, as well as perform the basic functions of his or her job. In addition, the site should always be managed according to regulations set forth by OSHA. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

Nearly $200K Won for Person Injured by Equipment Malfunction

When equipment used on the construction site malfunctions, serious injuries can be the result. There is often a dispute as to whether the injury was caused by operator error or the malfunction of the equipment. Whether the equipment at issue is a large earth mover or a smaller piece of equipment to move debris, equipment failure is difficult to prove.

 

In order to obtain a recovery from the equipment manufacturer or equipment owner (who may have been negligent in designing or repairing the equipment) those who have been injured need to prove the error was caused by a malfunction with the equipment.

 

While an employee may assert a claim for workers' compensation with their employer, a separate claim may be made and additional recovery obtained against other negligent entities responsible, such as the equipment owner. Keller & Keller has been successful in obtaining settlements in federal court, including a recovery in excess of six figures, utilizing an expert witness to provide evidence of equipment malfunction.

 

Don't Wait to Speak to an Attorney

Another important factor to consider, which affects every construction site injury claim, is time. Every work site injury claim is governed by a strict deadline (statute of limitations) that dictates how much time you have until your case expires.

In addition to the statute of limitations, the longer you wait to bring your case to an attorney, the more likely it is that evidence and memories will begin to disappear and fade, respectively. If a formal investigation is not completed shortly after the accident, you may jeopardize losing the strongest piece of evidence for your potential injury claim.

If you have not completely committed to retaining an Indiana construction site injury lawyer, at least contact one to be sure you are not doing anything that will damage your case. You only have one chance to make a recovery.
