Construction and workplace accidents injure thousands of workers every year. In most cases, these accidents could have been prevented had proper safety procedures been adopted. Negligence on the part of contractors, subcontractors, engineers, architects, and others responsible for workplace safety can result in catastrophic injury including spinal cord trauma, paraplegia or quadriplegia, traumatic brain injuries, chronic health conditions, and in some cases, wrongful death. The attorneys at Feldman Shepherd handle a wide array of construction and workplace injures arising from the following conditions:
Feldman Shepherd construction accident attorneys understand Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and other standards and practices applicable to construction sites, and how the failure to comply with safety rules can increase the risk of serious personal injury. Our results include a $13.3 million settlement for a carpenter who fell 14 feet at a construction site after the roof truss he was installing collapsed; an $11.3 million settlement for a concrete pump operator who fell through an unmarked hole at a California construction site; and a $4.5 million verdict for the New Jersey family of a pallet truck operator who suffered a fatal abdominal injury after his vehicle’s brakes failed.
