Construction Accidents

 

Construction work is hazardous. Men and women who work construction at building sites or on roads or highways are sometimes seriously injured or killed (wrongful death). Also, serious property damage can result from electrical fires, plumbing leaks, collapses, or negligent design.

In North Carolina, workers injured on the job in construction accidents cannot sue their employer for negligence; they must pursue worker’s compensation through the state agency that handles injured workers’ claims. However in construction, unlike most other types of work, third parties (such as other contractors engineers, suppliers, drivers or subcontractors) may have responsibilities for the injury.

At Dixon & Thompson Law, we pursue recovery for the injured, both from workers’ compensation and from negligent third-parties.

We help property owners who have sustained losses to real property and valuable personal property due to the negligence of others. Contact our North Carolina construction accident attorneys today to schedule a free initial consultation.

We pursue claims for injuries and death and large property losses involving all construction accidents caused by things such as:

  • Negligent operation of vehicles and equipment
  • Defective equipment
  • Hazardous materials
  • Unsafe design
  • Ladder or scaffold collapse
  • Explosions
  • Chemical leaks
  • Burns
  • Electrocution
  • Falling debris
  • Fires
  • Water Damage

Our attorneys are experienced trial lawyers who have successfully handled complicated personal injury, wrongful death and property damage cases. They aggressively pursue fair settlements. When the responsible parties and their insurance companies fail to be reasonable, they have the experience and resources needed to try complicated cases involving multiple parties and catastrophic injuries.
