Have You Been Injured While on the Job?
Given the large machinery, the heavy building materials, the often-open wiring and elevated heights of a construction site, it is no secret that they are inherently dangerous and that workers in the construction industry suffer many more injuries than those in other industries. Workers’ compensation laws cover many of the costs of an injury sustained while working on a construction site. Unfortunately, it may not always be enough to cover medical expenses and to make up for lost wages.
If you or someone you love sustained injuries on a construction site, it may have been due to negligent safety standards or a defective product. It is important for your future that you have a North Georgia personal injury attorney investigate your case to determine responsibility. If a supervisor was not fulfilling his or her duties, or if proper safety guidelines were not being followed, of if a piece of fault equipment caused your injury, you are entitled to more than just workers’ compensation. At Leibel Law, our construction accident lawyers are committed to helping victims obtain fair and full compensation for their injuries.
Construction Accident Injuries
Common types of construction accidents include: falls from the building, scaffolding accidents, electrocution, explosions, welding accidents, crane accidents, obstructed walkways, machinery malfunction, and more. All too often these accidents lead to serious injuries, such as spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis and even death.

Allow a construction accident attorney from our firm to represent your case, and we will work diligently to ensure that you are provided the compensation that you deserve.
