Construction Accidents

County, state, and federal safety regulations are intended to make homes and buildings safe for the people who live and work in them. They are also intended to make the dangerous work of construction safer for workers who risk their health and their lives on a daily basis. The reality of the construction industry is contractors, subcontractors, and others are often tempted to cut corners when they feel they can obtain significant savings and increase their profits.


The Law Offices of Richard C. Woods represents seriously injured workers and families who have lost loved ones as the result of construction accidents caused by the negligent or wrongful actions of others.


The firm's practice includes worksite accident cases of:
* Electrocution and explosions
* Scaffolding collapses or falls from unsecured ladders
* Injuries caused by falling objects
* Accidents involving defective machinery
* Accidents involving forklifts, cranes, or other heavy equipment
* Other construction site accidents


The majority of construction accident claims result from one or more of these causes: contractor or subcontractor negligence, workplace safety violations, or defective products and faulty workplace equipment such as aerial lifts, cranes, and a variety of power tools.


Falls from roofs or scaffolding and other construction accidents can result in brain injuries or spinal cord injuries which require a lifetime of care and treatment. Other common injuries from construction workers include burn injuries, amputation, and back injuries.


The firm welcomes inquiries about its construction accidents practice and offers free consultations. All cases are handled on a contingent fee basis; you pay no attorneys' fees unless we are able to obtain compensation on your behalf.
