Construction sites are busy, even chaotic work environments that pose an array of hazards even for the most seasoned and safety-conscious workers. In the metro Atlanta area and throughout Georgia, pedestrians and bystanders also sometimes suffer the tragic impact of an explosion, wall collapse or other accidents caused by construction negligence.
Informed Representation for Seriously Injured Workers and Bystanders
After many construction accidents that cause on-the-job injuries, the primary recourse for the injured person is a workers' compensation claim. However, when negligence on the part of someone other than injured worker's employer is the cause of injury, or a pedestrian or other bystander is injured, a "third-party" personal injury lawsuit is often justified — with the potential to recover substantial compensation. Skilled lawyers at Fried & Bonder, LLC, have extensive experience pursuing these types of claims.
Many serious accidents on Georgia building sites, demolition sites and in highway work zones result from companies' or government entities' failure to take proper safety precautions. Improper posting of a construction site or zone, failure to maintain equipment and insufficient training of workers are a few forms of potentially actionable negligence that can lead to:
- Scaffolding collapses and other causes of falls from heights
- Electrical fires and various types of explosions that can be fatal or lead to devastating burn injuries and other life-changing consequences
- Motor vehicle accidents on work sites or in improperly set up road construction zones
