Construction personnel are often exposed to very dangerous work environments, more so than most any other industry. We are Missouri and Illinois construction accident injury lawyers. Construction accidents and injuries usually are caused from simple errors in judgment, defective construction equipment, falls from high areas such as a roof, iron cross walk, or scaffold, struck by falling debris, construction material, or even construction machinery. Additionally, construction accidents are often caused by defective or unsafe equipment, explosions, and electrocution injuries.
One case we handled recently was a fatal fall from a water tower as the result of a defective lanyard. We held the contractor and the equipment manufacturer liable. Another case we recently handled was a serious injury as the result of a defective crane and a negligent crane operator causing a heavy load to fall on a construction worker seriously injuring her. She was able to pursue a Missouri Worker’s Compensation claim as well as support an independent cause of action against the crane operator and his employer.
