Construction Site Accidents

Construction accidents are unfortunately prevalent at building sites where a number of contractors are operating at the same time. Violations of OSHA standards by one contractor may affect the safety of all the workers at a site. This is just one example of how serious accidents and injuries can occur at Iowa construction sites. Whether it is for a development of a large-scale commercial building project, a residential home or highway maintenance work, construction workers face potential dangers every day. If you or a loved one was injured on the job in a construction site accident, it is very important that you reach out to a work injury lawyer.

Construction site accident victims may be under the impression that workers' compensation is their sole recourse after an accidental injury occurs. However, this is not always the case. In some situations, a third-party liability lawsuit can be made against any nonemployer parties that may have been negligent in causing a work injury. Our construction accident attorneys will work with you to determine all avenues of compensation, whether through workers' compensation or a third-party lawsuit.

Types of Iowa Construction Site Accidents

Even when following proper protocol, mistakes are made on construction sites. Sometimes they do not cause accidents. But more often than not a single mistake by a co-worker or a contractor can create catastrophic consequences. In addition, it is not always human error that can result in a construction site accident. Machinery can be defective, and manufacturers or distributors of machinery can be liable under a product liability claim.

We can help you with any type of construction site accident, including those involving:

  • Falling objects
  • Heavy machinery
  • Electrocutions
  • Explosions/chemical spills
  • Equipment failure/defect
  • OSHA violations
