Car Accidents on Construction Sites

Injury cases at construction sites can be challenging. These claims require the attention of skilled attorneys since they range from liability issues brought on by several parties, contractors, developers, and property owners to issues with labor law, workplace safety rules, and carelessness. This is particularly true if they incorporate motor vehicles, including dangerous construction equipment like:

  • Backhoes
  • Bulldozers
  • Cement Mixers
  • Commercial Trucks
  • Dump Trucks
  • Forklifts
  • Front Loaders
  • Graders
  • Maintenance Vehicles
  • Trenchers
  • Utility Vehicles

The following are some examples of the cases we handle:

Workplace Injuries

  • Collisions between construction vehicles and operational machinery or heavy equipment (the second-most frequent factor in fatal construction accidents involving auto accidents);
  • Injuries sustained when things fall from buildings or construction vehicles collide, causing property damage;
  • Commercial vehicle and operational equipment run-over, back-over, and roll-over incidents are the top cause of fatal vehicle construction site accidents, according to the DoT;
  • Falls from great heights brought induced by commercial or construction trucks crashing into scaffolding, ladders, or construction elevators;
  • Insecure cargo, poorly maintained vehicles, and other regulatory infractions that result in truck and tractor-trailer accidents;
  • Accidents in which automobiles collide with dangers including pits, spikes, and holes that aren't covered;
  • Accidents involving power lines and vehicles that result in electrical injury and electrocution;
  • Slips, trips, and falls brought on by chemicals, debris, and materials from construction vehicles (i.e., vehicles that are not properly maintained and leak oil or that create dangers and are not addressed);
  • Defective components and products on construction equipment and commercial vehicles.

Passerby / Passenger Vehicle Accidents

  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents in which bystanders are struck or run over by commercial vehicles;
  • Collisions between large construction equipment and standard vehicles carrying passengers;
  • Accidents involving passenger cars that are rear-ended, involve many vehicles, or are otherwise caused by hazardous or unsafe work zones or failures to warn;
