If a construction accident led to your injuries or caused you to lose a loved one, you can pursue damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

Our Legal Team Fights for Fair Compensation in Delaware County, Ohio
We take pursuing compensation seriously. We account for your various losses and commit to seeking fair awards.
Construction accident injuries can leave you with crippling medical debt and keep you from earning an income. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s carelessness. We can calculate your damages and fight to make you whole again.
Take a look at some of the expenses a settlement or verdict may cover:
- Bills for immediate medical intervention, such as ambulatory care, emergency room care, surgeries, medication, and more
- Bills for ongoing medical care, including rehabilitative therapy and in-home aid
- Home modifications and medical equipment
- Wages you lost during your recovery
- Reduced earning capacity if you cannot earn your pre-injury income
- Out-of-pocket expenses for your injuries
A Third-Party Lawsuit Allows You to Seek Additional Damages
Additional financial recovery may also apply if you file a third-party lawsuit. For example, permanent disability, scarring or disfigurement, pain and suffering, and a lower quality of life may also warrant compensation.
We can gather the necessary information to validate these losses, such as receipts and wage statements. We can also determine what a fair award looks like for your non-economic losses.
Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a loved one to construction accident injuries, compensation can help you honor their memory and provide for your family in their absence. A wrongful death lawsuit may help you recover:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- The cost of their medical treatment
- Awards for their pain and suffering
- The income they would have continued to provide
- Compensation for the companionship they gave you
Usually, a representative of the estate files a wrongful death lawsuit, but the court can appoint a spouse, child, or parent to lead the case. We can review your loved one’s will and help your family take legal action.

We Work to Hold the At-Fault Parties Responsible
Though construction is a dangerous field, various parties have a responsibility to keep workers reasonably safe on the job. If a third party’s negligence played a part in your construction accident, we can work to hold them accountable.
Consider the following scenarios that can lead to a preventable construction accident:
A Manufacturer Produces a Defective Piece of Construction Equipment
Construction accidents often involve heavy equipment, such as excavators and pile driving machines. The size and weight of these machines make them particularly dangerous when they do not function properly.
A manufacturer may produce a piece of equipment with a defective feature, such as a safety lever. It only takes one faulty part to cause a life-threatening accident.
A Subcontractor Fails to Train or Monitor a Worker
Subcontractors often oversee construction projects, and they have a responsibility to monitor workers and implement safety protocol.
A subcontractor may allow an untrained worker to operate a heavy piece of equipment or fail to provide proper instructions. A simple mistake could put everyone nearby at risk.
A Driver Crashes Their Car Into a Construction Site
Construction projects often take place near residential or commercial areas, surrounded by busy roads. Despite warning signs and detour routes, an inattentive driver can crash their vehicle into a construction site and hit workers.
A worker may not even see or hear the car coming if they are focused on a task, using loud machinery.
In any of these situations, the third party would bear liability for the construction worker’s injuries and losses.
