West Virginia Construction Accident Attorneys Pursue Full and Fair Compensation for Your Injuries

A law firm that knows construction sites pose dangers for workers and pedestrians

At Angotti & Straface, L.C., we help injured workers and innocent bystanders recover damages when they sustain injuries caused by dangerous construction site conditions. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 35 percent of accidents among construction workers were slips, trips or falls, and more than 800 construction workers died in site accidents in 2012.

If your construction employer has workers’ compensation insurance, you cannot sue the company. However, other parties may be liable for the accident and the injury, such as a product manufacturer or another third party. We bring investigators to the case to thoroughly examine the site and the evidence. With nearly 60 years of combined legal experience, the personal injury lawyers at Angotti & Straface, L.C. are formidable advocates who work in your best interest.

A wide variety of accidents occur at construction sites

The following conditions can lead to construction site accidents:

  • Falling roofing, scaffolding and building frames
  • Forklift, backhoe and crane accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Falling or flying objects
  • Faulty equipment and machinery
  • Violations of Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) regulations
  • Improper lighting
  • Insufficient ventilation
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Electrocution from exposed wires or machinery
  • Explosions
  • Fires

Unsafe premises and unsafe walkways on or near a construction zone also threaten the lives of pedestrians. Our construction accident lawyers represent injured construction workers and passersby in West Virginia.

Serious injuries may result from construction zone accidents

Construction accident injuries are serious and include the following:

  • Death
  • Paralysis and spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head, neck and back injuries
  • Severed limbs, fingers and toes
  • Loss of hearing or sight
  • Fractured bones
  • Burns
  • Scarring and disfigurement

These kinds of injuries can alter an entire family’s way of life. We can pursue damages from negligent parties to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering now and for the future. Moreover, if a loved one died as a result of a construction accident, we can pursue a wrongful death claim.
