Construction sites are known for the dangers that they pose to workers. The use of dangerous machinery and ascending to great heights in scaffolds puts construction workers at risk of injury every day. Bart Durham’s Workplace Injury Lawyers, in Nashville, Tennessee to Bowling Green, Kentucky, has represented clients injured in construction site accidents where negligence played a major part in causing their injuries.
Those who operate construction sites have an obligation to maintain high standards of safety in these already dangerous environments. When they fall short in that obligation and that results in a construction site accident injury, you need a knowledgeable, experienced and dedicated advocate. That is where we come in to help. Do not face a large construction or contracting company on your own.
Our team of attorneys and legal professionals will go through every detail related to your construction site accident case. Many injuries suffered at a construction site are severe and deadly. A fall from scaffolding or an injury or electrical shock from equipment failure can potentially be fatal.
The company operating the site is not always the entity solely responsible if you suffer a construction site accident. Many times, a defective product causes a construction site accident. We will work on your behalf to hold the product manufacturer responsible for the industrial injury suffered.
Lawyers For Construction Workers Hurt In Fall Accidents
Some of the most common types of workplace injuries are falls from ladders and scaffolding. Often these accidents are anything but accidental; they are the result of negligence by an employer or contractor working at the construction site.
When a construction worker is injured on the job, employers usually steer the employee to workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation provides valuable benefits for injured workers regardless of who was at fault for the accident. If your injury was caused by the negligence of another party, you may have additional options.
Those who operate construction sites have an obligation to maintain high standards of safety in these already dangerous environments. When they fall short in that obligation, and you are injured as a result, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. Filing a personal injury lawsuit would enable you to seek damages for pain and suffering and other losses that are not covered by workers’ compensation. We will work as a team of lawyers and legal professionals to go through every detail related to your accident case and seek all of the compensation to which you are entitled.
The company operating the site and the contractor responsible for erecting the scaffold may not be the only responsible parties for an accident. Some accidents are caused by defective products. In this case, we will work on your behalf to hold the ladder or scaffolding manufacturer responsible for the injury you suffered.
Attorneys For Construction Workers Hit By Falling Objects

Our legal team represents construction workers throughout Tennessee who have been injured as the result of negligence.
Lawyers Representing Construction Workers Hit By Falling Objects
Many assume that workers’ compensation is the only remedy for a worker injured in a construction accident. While workers’ compensation helps you maintain your income and pays for your medical bills while you recover, it does not compensate you for everything you have lost, and it provides no compensation for your pain and suffering. If you are injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to obtain additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party.
Employers are required to be proactive in protecting construction workers from injuries caused by falling objects. That includes:
Securing materials, tools and other equipment on elevated platforms when those items are not in use
Barring employees from working below other workers unless they are provided protection from falling objects
Requiring all workers to wear hard hats
