New Hampshire Construction Accident Lawyers

Pursuing All Available Claims for Construction Site Injuries

If you have been injured at a construction site, you may have grounds for a variety of legal claims depending on the circumstances of the case. Workers will generally be covered by workers’ compensation claims. However, parties other than your employer may have been at fault and may be held liable. Only by consulting a New Hampshire construction accident attorney at our firm will you know how your case will intersect with workers’ compensation laws and whether you are entitled to compensation above and beyond what a workers’ comp claim will bring.

At Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C., we have an in-depth understanding of all of the potential claims that may be valid in serious construction site accidents. Our firm has decades of personal injury representation for clients throughout the state. We have tough negotiation skills and trial experience, investigative ability and resources, and thorough case preparation skills, all of which can be used on your behalf in any claim against insurance companies.

Who May Be Held Liable in a Construction Site Accident?

Construction site accidents can occur from numerous causes; some of these causes may be the responsibility of third parties outside of your employer. These can be the manufacturers or distributors of defective tools, vehicles, and other equipment used at a construction site or anyone else working outside of the construction site company, such as engineers, suppliers, subcontractors, and more.

In such cases where other parties have contributed to or been liable for the conditions that caused your accident, you may have grounds for a third-party claim. Third-party claims may provide compensation for pain and suffering which is not covered by workers’ compensation.

Construction site accidents can include but are not limited to:

  • Falls
  • Being struck by falling objects
  • Heavy equipment or vehicle accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Defective tools, equipment, or vehicles
  • Electrical shocks
  • Toxic fumes/hazardous materials spills or leakages
  • Fires
  • Welding, crane, hoist, and harness malfunctions
