Construction Site Injuries in West Virginia
Experienced Lawyers for Third Party Construction Accident Claims
Construction work is dangerous enough when proper safety precautions are taken. When other parties such the property owner or another subcontractor are careless or disregard regulations, it puts you in danger. If the tools and equipment you need to do your job are defective or have been modified, you are also at risk.
Construction workers often assume that they are limited to workers' compensation benefits. You can't sue your employer in most instances, but you may have a personal injury claim against a third party for negligence. Let the experienced construction accident attorneys of Angotti & Straface consider whether you have grounds for a lawsuit.

Construction Accidents: Who Is Responsible for Your Injury?
Angotti & Straface has recovered settlements and won verdicts in a number of these cases. We can pursue compensation for injuries or a wrongful death resulting from:
- A falling accident (roof, scaffolding, building frames)
- Forklift, backhoe and crane accidents
- Explosions or fires
- Falling or flying objects
- Trench collapse
- Road construction accidents (passing motorists)
- Machinery with missing or disabled guards
- Power tool injuries (air nailers, saws)
- Building or roof collapse
We investigate promptly to identify the negligence that caused the construction accident. Did another subcontractor's actions expose you to danger or directly cause the injury? Was there a manufacturer's defect with the tools or heavy equipment? Did a homeowner or property owner create a hazard or take down safety barriers? Did your own employer order you into a dangerous situation or intentionally violate OSHA regulations?
