Construction Accident Attorneys in Columbia, Missouri
Injured construction workers may be eligible to file a personal injury claim in addition to a workers' compensation claim. In these cases, personal injury claims are referred to as third-party claims, claims against some party other than the worker's employer. For example, the claim may be against another contractor working on the construction site. At Harper, Evans, Wade & Netemeyer, our attorneys take care to review all potential sources of compensation to make certain you get the money you need to move forward with your life.
Construction Equipment Accident Attorneys
Many of the dangers present on a construction site are the result of the equipment being used. Cranes, bulldozers, excavators and other heavy equipment can be extremely harmful if used improperly or defective. Even smaller hand-held tools such as nail guns and saws can lead to devastating injuries in untrained or careless hands.
Because of the heights involved, construction accidents often involve falls. These falls may be the result of improper or unused fall prevention gear, unsafe scaffolding or even trenches and holes that have not been properly blocked off.
Construction Accidents Can Happen In Numerous Ways
Falling objects can also lead to serious injuries on construction sites. Even a small tool dropped from a few stories up can lead to a life-changing head injury. Many falling objects are much heavier, including girders, concrete blocks, window panes and other construction materials.
