Accidents frequently occur on construction sites because of the inherently dangerous operations involved. Construction workers and others present on construction sites can suffer serious injuries and even death in construction accidents.

At the Law Offices of Peter M. DeLongis, Ltd., we have handled numerous complex construction accident lawsuits. We understand what it takes to obtain maximum compensation in these challenging personal injury claims.
Aggressive Construction Accident Representation
Personal injury liability lawsuits from construction site accidents can be complicated by workers’ compensation laws, which prevent workers from suing their employers. However, there are numerous situations where someone can file a personal injury claim for a construction accident. For example, a construction worker can file suit if:
- A third party, another contractor, or the employee of another contractor is at least partially liable for the accident.
- Unsafe equipment is involved in the accident.
- There are unsafe working conditions on the job site.
- There was intentional wrongdoing on behalf of the employer.
There are many incidents that can lead to serious injuries and deaths on a construction site, including:
- Building collapses
- Negligent equipment use
- Defective equipment
- Falling accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Welding accidents
- Supervisor negligence
- Crane accidents
