Canton Construction Accident Attorneys

While there are many dangerous occupations that may cause serious injury and even fatalities, the construction industry has consistently ranked as an occupation with the highest number of serious injuries and fatalities. There are in excess of 150,000 injuries on construction sites annually, and the construction industry also leads all occupations for the number of accident-related fatalities.

While construction site accidents resulting in significant injuries are prevalent, there are unique challenges that come with seeking compensation if you are injured in a Canton construction accident. Canton construction sites change rapidly so if you fail to take immediate action to preserve critical evidence, it may disappear following a serious construction site accident. Construction accident litigation also is complicated by the complex and often shifting relationships between employees, independent contractors, subcontractors, contractors and suppliers involved in a typical construction project.

Our Canton construction accident attorneys have been assisting those injured on construction projects in Canton and throughout Georgia with successfully recovering compensation for serious construction accidents since 1984. The debilitating nature of many serious construction accidents may make it difficult, if not impossible, for you to continue with your career creating an enormous financial hardship for you and your family. Our Canton construction accident lawyers work hard to investigate construction accidents and develop an effective settlement and litigation strategy on behalf of our clients.

Although there are many federal and state regulations that provide safety standards for construction sites, sometimes these safety standards are ignored. If you are involved in a construction accident in Canton or the greater Atlanta metro area, it is essential that you work with experienced construction accident attorneys familiar with the unique aspects of construction accident litigation. Workers' compensation law generally will govern recovery against your employer. While a workers' compensation claim does not require you to show that your employer was negligent (i.e. unreasonably careless), it also tends to result in less generous financial compensation than a personal injury lawsuit. Our experienced construction accident team will often assist our clients in pursuing a workers' compensation claim against their employer while at the same time exploring other potential responsible parties against whom we may file a personal injury lawsuit. Third parties that may be liable for injuries suffered on a construction site include the following:

  • Architects or engineers
  • General contractors or sub-contractors
  • Companies that manufacture unsafe or defective machinery or tools
  • Equipment suppliers
  • Employees of other subcontractors or general contractors
  • Property or project owner

Construction site equipment may be inadequately maintained, or workers may lack sufficient training. Alternatively, OSHA safety regulations as well as other regulations that govern construction project safety may be ignored or disregarded. The experienced Canton construction accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates analyze construction accidents, including conducting interviews with those performing work on the site and scrutinizing safety reports and other documents regarding construction project safety issues.

Because of our extensive experience and expertise in handling construction accidents in Canton and throughout the greater Atlanta area, our Canton construction accident law firm can handle a wide range of construction accidents, including but not limited to the following:

  • Falls from ladders, scaffolding and other elevations (e.g. unfinished roofs)
  • Motor vehicle accidents often involving heavy equipment
  • Electrocution accidents
  • Chemical exposure accidents
  • Confined space accidents
  • Trench collapse or excavation accidents
  • Injuries caused by negligent or inexperienced operators of heavy machinery
  • Defective or poorly maintained heavy machinery
  • Accidents involving explosives and detonation
  • Slip, trip and fall accidents on construction sites

If you are involved in a construction accident, you may face mounting medical bills, substantial lost income and impaired future earning capacity associated with your Canton construction accident. These serious accidents often result in serious or catastrophic injury, including injuries to the spinal cord, traumatic brain injuries, life-threatening internal organ injuries, severe compound fractures or broken bones and even wrongful death.

If you are injured in a serious construction accident, our experienced Canton construction accident lawyers work diligently to identify potential third parties that may be responsible for your injuries so that we can assist our clients in pursuing both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim. We are often able to represent our clients in seeking compensation for medical expenses, income replacement, pain and suffering, impairment of a spouse’s companionship or services, partial or permanent disability (i.e. future lost income) and other damages depending on the specifics of our client’s Canton construction accident.

GA Injury Lawyers

If you or someone you love has been seriously injured by the negligent conduct of an individual, corporation or public entity, a personal injury victim typically gets only one opportunity to pursue fair financial compensation. When personal injury victims struggle with physical pain from their injuries or families cope with the grief of losing a loved one, it can be extremely difficult to focus on pragmatic issues like pursuing an insurance claim or complying with legal requirements and deadlines.

Our experienced GA Injury Lawyers at Montlick and Associates recognize the enormous financial, psychological and physical challenges faced by those who suffer injuries resulting from the negligent, reckless or intentional actions of others. We have been aggressively pursuing justice and financial compensation as well as striving to hold those whose conduct harms others accountable since our law firm was founded in 1984. We have represented hundreds upon hundreds of personal injury victims and have recovered tens upon tens of millions of dollars for our clients. While the variety of cases we have handled during our nearly three decades serving Atlanta and the surrounding areas is too extensive to list, some of the cases that we see most frequently include:

Atlanta Motor Vehicle Accident Claims: There are many varieties of motor vehicle accident claims that differ based on the vehicles involved and the nature of the collision. However, car accidents, motorcycle collisions, tractor-trailer crashes, bicycle accidents, pedestrian-car accidents and all other forms of motor vehicle accidents in Atlanta often result in debilitating injuries. The most common causes of these types of motor vehicle accidents include alcohol and drug-impaired drivers, inattentive drivers, speeding or tailgating drivers and other drivers that fail to comply with basic Georgia traffic safety laws. If you have suffered serious injury in an Atlanta auto accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident or pedestrian accident, our experienced Atlanta motor vehicle accident attorneys have helped many people move past their injuries and rebuild their lives.

Atlanta Wrongful Death Actions: Few experiences are as difficult as coping with the loss of a loved one who dies prematurely because of another’s lack of care or consideration. Our Atlanta wrongful death law firm cannot give you back the companionship and love of a family member, but we have represented many families in recovering the financial compensation necessary to deal with medical and burial expenses as well as the loss of household income that may result from the untimely demise of a loved one.

Atlanta Dog Bites: While dogs are often referred to as “man’s best friend,” irresponsible dog owners that promote viciousness or ignore its existence may cause serious Atlanta dog attacks that result in permanent disfigurement or other serious injuries. Although the legal theory for imposing liability for an Atlanta dog bite incident may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case, a dog owner generally has a duty to protect others from injury caused by his or her dog, particularly if the owner has reason to know of the dog’s tendency to be aggressive. Small children are the most common victims of dog attacks so our Atlanta dog bite lawyers handle such cases with compassion and diligence.

Atlanta Premises Liability (Slip and Fall Attorneys): Premises liability law imposes a legal duty on property owners to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition and/or warn visitors of potential hazards. The most common type of premises liability cases are slip and fall accidents. When businesses fail to perform basic maintenance, like checking for foreign substances or objects on walkways or clearing such hazards, they may be liable for injuries to patrons, suppliers, vendors and others that come on the property depending on the specific facts. Insurance companies defend slip and fall cases vigorously often alleging that the victim failed to observe an open and obvious hazard or that the victim is exaggerating the extent of the victim’s injuries. Other types of premises liability cases include dog bite cases, accidents on or near construction sites and negligent security cases.

Atlanta Workplace Injuries (e.g. Construction Accidents): While OSHA and state agencies prescribe certain workplace safety standards, many work environments are inherently dangerous, such as construction workplaces. If you suffer physical injury, severe stress-related injuries, repetitive motion injuries or occupational illnesses, we may be able to represent you in pursuing a workers’ compensation claim. While such claims do not require that you prove negligence, the available damages generally are more limited than in personal injury settlements and judgements. Sometimes the negligence of parties other than your employer will contribute to on-the-job injuries so we also explore the possibility of filing a personal injury claim for our clients.

Atlanta Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect: The decision to entrust a parent, grandparent or other loved one to the care of an Atlanta nursing home can be extremely stressful. If the staff and management of the nursing home fail to fulfill their obligations to protect and care for your loved one, the consequences can be emotionally and physically devastating. Elder abuse at the hands of nursing home staff is far too common because many times seniors have a difficult time communicating that they are being victimized. Our experienced Atlanta nursing home attorneys have represented seniors who have suffered many forms of mistreatment, including physical assault, sexual abuse, rape, financial exploitation, isolation, abandonment, unjustified chemical or physical restraint or denial of hydration & nutrition.

Atlanta Product Liability Injuries: Our Atlanta product liability attorneys focus on both seeking compensation for those who are injured by dangerous or defective products and exposing unsafe products so that companies must improve product safety. We handle many forms of defective product claims, including defective pharmaceuticals, defective motor vehicles, defective children’s products, defective consumer electronics and more. We have the experience and commitment to take on product liability claims against large corporations that have extensive litigation resources to defend against such claims.

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious personal injury or a loved one has died, our experienced GA Injury Lawyers are committed to representing personal injury and wrongful death victims in obtaining compensation to rebuild their lives and support their families.
