The construction industry is extremely dangerous, with workers putting their lives on the line every day in order to ensure successful completion of projects. Construction workers have to constantly deal with hazardous conditions and the risks of suffering serious injuries. Because of this, there are laws, rules, regulations, codes, and guidelines in place to protect workers. Unfortunately, these protective measures are not always followed and injuries do occur.
If you have been injured in a construction accident, turn to a member of our personal injury legal team at The Donahey Law Firm. Our Columbus based law firm represents clients throughout the state who have suffered serious injuries as the result of construction accidents.
We represent clients in a wide range of construction accident cases, including:
- Crane injury
- Ladder fall
- Scaffold fall
- Falling objects
- Bucket truck accident
- Toxic spill
- Chemical exposure
- Electrocution or explosion injury
- Industrial accidents
The laws that govern the construction industry are very strict in order to protect workers. For example, if an employee is injured because of a fall from an elevated height while working, the owner of the site or its contractors may be strictly liable. Statutes protect construction workers because of the inherent danger involved in their jobs.
When representing you in a construction accident or crane injury case, we handle cases on a "contingent fee" basis. This means that we don't get paid until we are successful in recovering financial compensation on your behalf.
