Construction and Work-Site Accidents, Injury and Death
Construction work is physically demanding and has some inherent injury risks. However, many of the accidents that occur on construction sites prove, upon investigation, to have been caused by some person's or company's decision to compromise on safety standards. If you believe this may be true in the case of your own or a family member's serious accident, you can turn to our law firm with confidence.
While workers' compensation benefits are an essential protection, they are limited and often inadequate to support an injured or deceased worker's family. At The Redfearn Law Firm, our attorneys have successfully pursued many third-party lawsuits after determining that someone other than the employer was negligent and responsible for what happened.
We have represented many workers and their families after construction and other job-site accidents. Results achieved for our clients have included a total settlement exceeding $2 million from a mechanical contractor and other defendants for exposing a worker to carbon monoxide poisoning. Our firm has obtained numerous other significant recoveries after falls, explosions and other events caused by work-site negligence or defective equipment and tools. And we have helped to shape Missouri law on the right to recover when a co-employee creates a danger that causes harm.
Our legal team has the proven ability and access to expert resources necessary to investigate a construction accident and establish causality. We prioritize personal injury or wrongful-death cases and seek just compensation for injuries, including:
Scaffolding fall, ladder fall or other fall from heights;
Electrical accident burns, severe injuries or tragic fatality by electrocution;
Preventable fire or explosion;
Toxic exposure to chemical fumes or other harmful substances;
Impact from a dropped load or falling debris;
On-the-job construction vehicle accident; and
Malfunction of defective or poorly maintained equipment, such as an aerial lift, forklift, nail gun or any other tool or machine.
We will provide a free consultation to address your concerns and legal options after any type of construction accident in the Kansas City area or elsewhere in Missouri or Kansas. Call or contact us online anytime.
