Knowledgeable Assistance With Construction Accidents

Construction, including boat and ship building, is an important industry in Rhode Island. As of 2010, Rhode Island had 3,100 construction firms. However, this industry can take a major toll on employees.

Construction work ranks as one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), roughly 1,000 construction-related fatalities take place each year and numerous other workers suffer nonfatal injuries.

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, it is important that you contact D'Alessandro & Wright, LLC. Our aggressive attorneys may be able to recover compensation on your behalf from your employer or a number of negligent third parties.

Common Types Of Construction Accidents

Federal and state laws govern the safety level of construction sites in the U.S. For these regulations to work, however, the individuals responsible for administrating construction sites must ensure that they are followed.

If employers or site administrators fail to do so, accidents can occur, such as:

  • Falling accidents — particularly falls from ladders, scaffolding, cranes and construction elevators
  • Injuries sustained from large objects moving or falling
  • Toxic chemical or gas exposure
  • Construction equipment malfunction
  • Fires/explosions
  • Electrocution
  • Construction vehicle accidents
  • Welding accidents

Injuries sustained by construction workers vary significantly based on the severity of the accident. These may include severe lacerations or abrasions, burns, crush injuries, broken bones, accidental amputation, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, paralysis and coma.

We Protect The Rights Of Injured Workers

Many individuals and entities can be responsible for the safety of a construction site. These include the site owners, the architect of the construction project, contractors, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and construction managers.

With so many individuals responsible for the health and safety of their on-site construction workers, many separate parties could be liable for the injuries you sustained. Our firm will investigate your accident thoroughly and make sure that every negligent party answers for their poor choices.
