Construction Accidents

Working in construction can be extremely dangerous. Machinery can malfunction, co-workers can be careless, safety equipment can fail, and any one of those can lead to an unforeseen injury. Construction workers also expect that their employer has observed and implemented all safety precautions, but this is not always the case. If you think you need to file a personal injury claim for a construction accident, please contact our team. Tell us your story during your free consultations, and we’ll work to determine the best course of action.

Working with us is completely free if we don’t win. By taking on your case, we can help you and your loved ones secure what you’re owed.

When the Jobsite Wasn’t Safe

Even though construction workers are aware and trained when it comes to the ever-present dangers around the jobsite, the unpredictable nature of the job itself means even the most well-trained and responsible worker can be subject to injury.

According to the National Safety Council and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the construction industry can experience nearly 75,000 nonfatal worker injuries and illnesses in a single year.[1]

Objects that can fall, swing, or roll are particularly dangerous on construction sites. There is also the very real risk of being caught in collapsing building material. The Indiana Construction Safety Division of OSHA also recognizes the physical hazards related to equipment and hand tools, which can cause devastating injuries such as abrasions, broken bones, and amputations.[2] This is why regular safety inspections are so crucial for workers in the construction industry.

The lack of focus or due diligence from someone else should not leave you dealing with the financial burden alone. Duepner Law can help.

Construction Accident Personal Injury Claims

The aftermath of a construction accident is challenging on multiple levels, beyond the physical injuries and experiencing anger for what happened. You likely needed to take time off work, and could be facing extreme medical bills and other financial stressors.

There are many factors to consider before filing a personal injury lawsuit. Construction workers are rarely able to sue employers directly, and yet there are still ways to receive the compensation you are owed. Working with a personal injury attorney will empower you to weigh all of the options with clarity.

Duepner Law offers free consultations for personal injury cases. There is no fee unless we recover a settlement for your claim.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Construction site accidents can be complicated because there will often be more than one company present at the construction site. This can make it much more difficult to determine liability for a jobsite injury. If you have been involved in a construction site accident, the first step would be to identify the cause of the accident, especially when the outcome is fatal.

OSHA reports that heavy equipment is responsible for about 75% of all struck-by fatalities.[3]

Some construction accidents may have occurred because of a negligent third party. For example, the instance could be traced back to a subcontractor or an equipment manufacturer, rather than your employer.

An eligible third-party claim would allow you to pursue compensation for pain and suffering damages. Yet due to all of the mitigating factors that can be present in a construction site accident case, only a complete and thorough investigation can determine liability. Please contact our team to learn more about how we can help build your case.


We need to determine the full extent of your injuries and review your prognosis. By calculating every aspect of the loss, we can help ensure that you will receive everything you are owed according to the law.

  • How has your ability to work been affected?
  • How has the accident affected your family, or other relationships?
  • What is the future prognosis for your day-to-day life?
  • What are the emotional impacts of the accident?

By taking on your case, we can help you and your loved ones secure what you’re owed.
