Construction Accident Lawyer in Columbus

Common Types of Accidents in Construction Sites

There is no doubt that working in a construction zone can be dangerous. However, construction workers still have the rights to feel relatively safe and protected despite the hazards around them. If you or a loved one has been injured while on the job in a construction site, don’t think that you have no right to seek compensation for your injuries. Get in touch with The Casto Law Firm to help you understand the legal options that you have in recovering compensation. We bring with us over 20 years of courtroom experience so clients like yourself can be confident in our representation.

Below are some of the construction accident cases we handle:

  • Falls from scaffolding, ladders, cranes, roofs, and other heights

  • Workers that were run over by large vehicles or crushed in between walls
  • Fires and explosion
  • Trench or building collapses
  • Workers suffering from overexertion such as heat stroke or motion injuries
  • Workers who developed respiratory illnesses as a result of inhaling harmful toxins

Recovering Compensation for Your Injuries

Every hard working individual in Georgia is protected by a state-mandated benefits insurance in case they got hurt or sustained an injury. This insurance is called workers’ compensation. It is a no-fault insurance that allows employees to receive compensation for the damages inflicted upon them without the need to prove negligence. Workers’ compensation serves as a protection for both employees and employers as receiving this insurance means waiving your right to sue your employer in situations where the company’s negligence or wrongful behavior is involved.

If you or your loved one has been injured while on the job or within the premises of the company, you are eligible to file a workers’ compensation. However, if your injuries were caused by a third party or other individuals besides your employer, such as the manufacturer that provided defective machinery or safety inspectors that failed to assess faulty safety gears, we can file a separate injury claim on top of your workers’ compensation.
