Construction Accident Lawyers in North Carolina
Dedicated Representation You Can Rely On
Construction workers are statistically some of the most likely workers 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 workplace accidents.
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 compensation in a third-party work injury claim.

Common Construction Accidents & Injuries
As previously mentioned, construction workers face a wide variety of risks every day on the job. To that end, there are myriad types of construction accidents and injuries we see here at Lanier Law Group.

Most construction accidents result in catastrophic injuries. These can include severe burns, accidental amputation, crush injuries, broken bones, organ damage, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, head and shoulder injuries, muscle strains, traumatic brain injuries, and more.
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.
