Construction Accidents

Charlotte Construction Accident Attorneys

Because they occur in the workplace, construction site and industrial accidents involve unique aspects that do not apply to most personal injury claims. Many accident victims may only be eligible for workers' compensation or Social Security Disability benefits. If you have suffered a catastrophic injury or lost a family member in a scaffolding accident or other workplace incident, contact a Charlotte construction accident lawyer at The Sasser Law Firm today.

Comprehensive Services for ALL of Your Needs

The Sasser Law Firm represents people and families from throughout the Carolinas and elsewhere in construction-related injury and wrongful death claims. As a firm, their skills, efforts, and resources are focused on cases involving fatal or catastrophic injuries resulting from:

  • OSHA violations
  • Serious falls and injuries caused by falling objects
  • Defective equipment or power tools
  • Negligent subcontractors
  • Electrocution
  • Scaffolding failures
  • Unsecured ladders
  • Chemical exposure
  • Improperly maintained construction equipment

Although there are some exceptions, in general, employers will be immune from anything other than a workers' compensation claim in these cases. Personal injury claims arise because construction sites often have employees from many different companies working there. If the negligent party is a co-worker, workmans' comp benefits apply. But if another employer or one of their employees is responsible for the accident, a personal injury claim can be pursued.
