Causes of Construction accidents
Even at the safest construction sites, workers are at risk for all kinds of accidents and injuries, including:
- Falling objects and debris
- Chemical spills
- Burn injuries
- Truck accidents
- Caved-in trenches
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fires and explosions
- Crane accidents
- Brain injuries
- Forklift accidents
- Fall accidents
- Malfunctioning equipment
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Heat exposure
- Lead exposure
People who work by construction sites and those who find themselves near these sites are also at risk for these kinds of accidents. The sad thing is that many of these accidents could have been prevented if employers followed safety guidelines laid out by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, including:
- Keeping the job site safe
- Training employees on safety
- Warning workers and others about hazards
- Providing adequate protection from construction hazards, including hard hats and scaffolding
- Properly using safety equipment
Proving that these failures caused your injury can be very difficult, and that is why you need skilled legal representation from a Hinesville construction accident lawyer.

Filing a Construction Accident Claim
Most construction workers will be covered by workers’ compensation if they suffer an on-the-job injury. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited and might not provide all of the financial help you need for your medical treatment, lost wages and other expenses.
Unfortunately, obtaining more compensation through a construction accident claim can be complicated. Workers’ compensation policies typically provide employers with immunity from lawsuits.
There are, however, other parties you can bring a lawsuit against, including vendors, equipment manufacturers, contractors and property owners. However, each party will likely try to blame the others for your injury, making it hard to establish liability.
The Hinesville construction accident lawyers at The Nye Law Group have many years of experience navigating these complex cases. If your injury was caused by negligence, we will aggressively pursue a claim against non-immune parties, which could include:
- General contractors
- Motorists passing by the construction site
- Construction site owners
At The Nye Law Group, the health of our clients is our number one priority. We will focus on the complex legal issues while you get medical treatment and focus on getting back in good health.
