Construction Accident Lawyer in Virginia

We've Won Millions in Our Decades of Experience - Call (571) 290-2390

Construction workers perform some of the most dangerous jobs in the United States and as such often suffer serious injuries. Thankfully, Virginia law requires employers with two or more workers to carry workers' compensation insurance. However, when workers' comp isn't sufficient, or your accident was caused by negligence, you may need the assistance of an experienced construction accident attorney in Virginia.

Workers’ Compensation for Construction Accidents

Administered by the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission, workers can receive partial payment of their wages, payment of their medical care, compensation for their permanent disability, and vocational rehabilitation as part of their claim.

While you don't have to prove negligence in order to receive workers' comp benefits, you may be pressured into accepting a compensation offer that won't even begin to cover the costs of your accident.

Our team is ready to guide you through the workers' compensation process!

When Negligence Causes Construction Accidents

Factors such as faulty communication, human error, and management oversight play a large role in the injuries which occur every day on Virginia construction sites. The owners and overseers of these sites have the responsibility to create and maintain a safe environment for all workers. Failure to do so can be considered negligence.

    When these accidents occur, the responsibility and liability can be placed on a number of parties. These include the construction companies for failing to provide safe equipment or perform proper safety inspections. Liability can also be placed on contractors or subcontractors, as well as manufacturers or material suppliers.

    If a third-party's negligence contributed to your injury, our construction accident lawyers in Virginia can help you file a personal injury claim for the compensation you deserve.

    Fatal Construction Accidents

    As a construction worker, you are undoubtedly aware of the intense and extreme dangers you are facing every day while on the job. Sometimes, construction site accidents result in fatalities, which is tragic for all involved.

    While accidents can happen as a result of any number of things, some accidents are more prevalent than others, otherwise known as the “fatal four":

    If you are the surviving family member of a loved one who died in a construction accident, we can help you pursue justice on their behalf by filing a wrongful death claim. You and your family have enough on your plate. Leave the worrying to us so you can focus on healing.

    If you have questions about your options as an injured construction worker, please feel free to call us at (571) 290-2390 to schedule a free consultation today.
