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.

Put decades of legal experience on your side; call Lanier Law Group at (855) 757-4204 or submit an online contact form to get started with a free initial consultation. 

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.

Our attorneys are adept at representing clients who have been injured in all types of construction accidents, including but not limited to:

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.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
