Despite safety regulations, training, and supervision, construction accidents are all too common. The workers involved may be left with serious, and sometimes fatal, injuries. Workers’ compensation, though required, is often limited, with complicated rules governing whether a worker can claim full compensation.
If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a construction accident, we strongly advise you seek out legal representation. The construction accident lawyers at Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP have successfully resolved many major construction accident and death cases, including plant explosions, significant falls resulting in death and parking garage collapses.
We represent clients who have sustained injuries caused by:
- Equipment malfunctions (design or manufacturer’s defects)
- Equipment in disrepair
- Mishandling equipment (power tools, nail guns, cranes)
- Falls (from scaffolds, upper stories, through floor openings, etc.)
- Gas and chemical explosions and fires
- Crushing accidents
- Negligent design and construction
