Construction Site Injury

Construction sites are notorious for containing more hazards than, say, office buildings. But the safety of construction sites is actually mandated by law. There are health and safety codes that site owners and managers must abide by – to protect employees and visitors from injury. At the law firm of Hewitt & Salvatore, PLLC, our West Virginia construction accident lawyers represent injured workers who can show their employer deliberately exposed them to dangerous conditions.

Cutting Corners Puts Lives at Risk

Unfortunately, there are many construction companies in West Virginia that intentionally ignore safety codes in the interest of time or to save money. In some cases, employers may be to blame for allowing a known hazard to exist. In other cases, injuries may be caused by a fellow employee’s careless act. We have also handled construction site injury claims where defective machinery or equipment causes serious harm.

Hewitt & Salvatore, PLLC helps workers who have suffered severe injury on construction sites as a result of:

  • Falling equipment or debris
  • Unsafe structures
  • Defective scaffolding
  • Defective machinery
  • Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
  • Improperly trained construction workers
  • Failure to dispose of toxic materials
  • Failure to meet OSHA regulations

We Hold Employers Accountable

If you or a family member has suffered a severe or fatal injury while employed on a construction site, you may have a claim for additional damages beyond simple Workers’ Compensation benefits. Our skilled, compassionate injury attorneys will listen to your story and launch a thorough investigation regarding the accident. Our goal is to hold the careless person accountable and to ensure you are compensated for the undue harm. We will evaluate the situation and determine if you are entitled to compensation for hospital bills, ongoing medical visits and treatment, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages.
