Construction Site Accidents and Injuries

Despite being dangerous places to work, construction sites are required to meet safety standards to prevent construction site accidents. When property owners or other third parties create unsafe working conditions or OSHA violations that result in injury or death, they can be held responsible and accountable. At the Law Office of Bilfield & Associates in Cleveland, Ohio, we represent people in personal injury claims related to construction site accidents.

Except under limited circumstances, Ohio worker’s compensation law prohibits an employee from filing a civil lawsuit for damages directly against his or her employer where the employer’s negligence caused the injuries. However, an employee may have a valid civil claim for injuries against another work crew, delivery person or property owner who is not the injured person’s direct employer. An example might be; a deliveryman, while making a customer delivery, is injured by a tow motor or other mechanized vehicle. You may also have a product liability claim against a business that supplied you with a defective power tool or defective construction equipment. If you have been seriously injured in a construction accident or if a family member died in a construction accident, you should contact us to schedule a Free Initial Consultation to determine whether an injury or wrongful death claim exists. The consultation is 100% confidential.

A construction site accident can have lifelong or long-lasting repercussions to you. Our attorneys will fight to get you full and fair compensation to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and any temporary or permanent disability and other out-of-pocket costs. If you have been involved in any of the following types of construction site accidents, you should speak to one of our attorneys immediately:

  • Truck And Dock Accidents
  • Scaffolding Or Ladder Accidents
  • Trench Collapses
  • Forklift Or Tow Motor Accidents
  • Electrical Accidents
  • Explosions And Fires
  • Falling Equipment And Debris
  • Machine And Tool Malfunction
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents At The Construction Site

Working on a construction site should not subject you to dangerous and unsafe working conditions. If you or a family member were injured on a construction site and believe the injury was due to the negligence of a company or their employees, contact the experienced injury attorneys at the Law Office of Bilfield & Associates at 216-696-LAWS216-696-LAWS. We will schedule a free initial, confidential, consultation to analyze whether you are entitled to compensation for your construction site injuries. Do not let your employer talk you out of fully investigating your construction site accident.

My husband and I had tried to do it by ourselves and found it to be very stressful and confusing, not to mention the time and money we wasted.

    "To whom it may concern:
    I had a serious MVA, resulting in a permanent and painful low back injury. After four years of trying to get my attorney to do something about the claim, my attorney's secretary informed me one day, that he had moved out of state, and that my case doctor had died. The attorney's office could not locate my file. At this time I contacted Murray Bilfield who took over my case. He was able to locate and recover my file from the A Dead Record@ section of the County Courthouse. In spite of these handicaps, Murray was able to revive my case, negotiate with the insurance company, and we were able to settle out the case for 90% of the insurance coverage.
    Without reservation, I would recommend Murray Bilfield, and have, to anyone in need of an excellent, skilled attorney."
