to be injured on the job. This is due, largely, to the inherently dangerous
nature of the job. Every day, construction workers must work at great
heights, use power tools and heavy machinery, and be on and around construction
sites where they are exposed to everything from live wires to harmful
building materials. As a result, many construction workers suffer
catastrophic injuries that put them out of work for months—or even years—on end.
And, even more tragically, numerous construction workers are killed each year in
If you are a construction worker who was injured on the job, or if your
loved one was killed in a construction accident, you may be entitled to
financial compensation for your damages. At Lanier Law Group, our North
Carolina construction accident attorneys are well-versed in these complex
claims; we can help you determine whether you may qualify for
workers’ compensation, what benefits you may be entitled to receive, or whether you should seek

Causes of Construction Accident Injuries and How to Prevent Them
Most construction accident lawsuits involve one of the following scenarios:
- Falling through a hole in the floor
- Falling off a roof
- Falling off scaffolds and/or ladders,
- Falling from a crane or falling through elevator shafts
In order to prevent a construction accident involving one of these scenarios,
it is important to
utilize all safety equipment provided by your company. If your company does not provide safety measures such as restraint systems,
guardrails, secure scaffolding, body harnesses or hole covers, you have
a legal right to request these safety measures.
