Colorado Springs Construction Accidents Lawyer
Were You Injured While Working a Construction Job?
Construction jobs are inherently dangerous — constant heavy lifting, hazardous equipment, high scaffolding and other factors often contribute to serious accidents. Construction companies have a duty to take steps to protect their workers and ensure that the work environment is as safe as possible. However, workers continue to suffer neck injuries, back injuries and other injuries daily. If you were injured while working a construction job, you may be able to pursue money for your medical bills and lost wages through a Colorado workers’ compensation claim.
At Weddell & Haller, P.C., our Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado construction accident attorneys have more than 35 years of experience helping injured workers find financial relief after work accidents. Workers’ compensation is a complex area of law. Employers frequently send their employees to doctors who undervalue claims and may even suggest that the injured employee can continue to work. We can help level the playing field when it feels like the odds are against you.
Comprehensive Support After a Construction Accident
We handle a wide range of construction accidents, including accidents involving:
- Scaffolding and ladder falls
- Falling objects
- Collapsed scaffolding
- Crane accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Defective equipment
- Negligent equipment maintenance
- Construction explosions
- Trip and falls
Whether your construction site injuries are short-term or you must deal with a permanent disability, our workers’ compensation lawyers are here to help.
Third-Party Liability Claims for Construction Injuries
Employees usually cannot directly sue their general contractor for their injuries; workers’ compensation laws protect employers from liability. However, if another party caused your accident — such as an independent contractor, subcontractor, scaffolding company, or crane owner/operator — you may be able to bring a third-party liability claim against them in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. Similarly, if you were injured by defective construction equipment, you may be able to hold the equipment manufacturers accountable.
Our Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado construction accident attorneys can evaluate your situation and pursue all recovery options open to you.
