Your Rights to Compensation

Whether you have suffered serious injuries while working at a commercial building construction site, at a residential construction project, or on another type of construction site, a construction accident lawyer will tell you that you have the right to compensation if another person or company caused your injuries. Where negligent or careless actions occur, and an accident results that causes injuries, the negligent party can be held financially responsible. Some examples as to how negligence might happen on a construction site include the following:

  • Violating U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) rules or regulations
  • Failing to adequately operate or maintain equipment
  • Forgoing the use of safety mechanisms for workers
  • Disposing of chemicals or other hazardous materials in an unsafe manner
  • Failing to maintain a workplace free of debris and other hazards

Particularly if an accident occurred at a large worksite, it may be difficult to determine the negligent party or parties whose actions led to the accident. This is where a construction accident attorney can help. By thoroughly investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding your construction accident, the lawyers of McMahon, McMahon & Lentz have the knowledge and skills to help you hold accountable all of those parties who may be responsible for the accident that led to your injuries or the loss of your family member.

Available Damages in Construction Accident Cases

Every construction accident is different, and the damages available often depend on the nature of the injuries suffered by the victim of the accident, and whether the accident ultimately was permanently disabling or even fatal. Whether you have sustained a traumatic brain injury, broken bones, internal injuries, lacerations, or a spinal cord injury, the negligent party responsible for the accident may be liable for damages, including medical bills, lost wages due to your inability to work on a temporary or permanent basis, and the costs of long-term care or treatment of your injuries.
