Types of Construction Accidents Our Firm Handles in Woodstock

Construction is a growing industry that will always have a place in Woodstock (and the rest of the United States), but it is arguably the most dangerous profession. The process of constructing and deconstructing heavy objects, tall structures, and electrical components (often at heights) can lead to:

Attorney Jennifer Gore-Cuthbert SuperLawyers 2022 Award
  • Falls from heights
  • Collapsing structures
  • Slip and falls
  • Trip and falls
  • Falling items
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Construction vehicle accidents
  • Safety equipment failures
  • Accidents caused by debris and other projectiles
  • Burn injuries
  • Electrocution injuries
  • Toxic exposure
  • Countless other accidents

Falls account for a disproportionate number of construction worker injuries. However, any construction accident has the potential to cause serious, disabling, and even fatal health outcomes.

If you suffered injuries, became ill, or lost a loved one due to conditions on or near a construction site, the attorneys at Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group want to fight for the settlement or judgment you deserve.

Workers’ Compensation Is Often an Option, But Not the Only Option

We represent anyone injured on or near construction sites, which includes:

  • Construction workers
  • Third-party contractors
  • Visitors invited to view the sight
  • Bypassers struck by projectiles or injured in other ways related to the site
  • Any other person injured in the vicinity of a construction site (or completing construction operations off-site)

Turning to workers’ compensation insurance is typically the first option for injured construction workers.

Workers’ Compensation Can Be a Lifeline

Employers in Georgia who regularly employ three or more workers must generally provide workers’ compensation benefits. This means that many construction workers are covered, a particularly important fact considering construction’s many hazards.

Avvo rating

Some benefits of workers’ compensation are:

  • You are generally entitled to compensation regardless of how a work-related injury happened (though there are exceptions, such as if you were engaged in horseplay)
  • You may receive compensation for medical expenses and a percentage of lost income
  • You may get essential compensation when you need it badly

You may receive workers’ compensation benefits more efficiently than if you were to sue. However, these benefits are not perfect and are not a final solution for every construction accident victim.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits Are Not Always Enough

There can be limitations to compensation obtained through workers’ compensation insurance. For instance:

  • You may only be eligible to receive a replacement of two-thirds of your average weekly income (as opposed to your whole income)
  • There may be coverage limits 
  • Workers’ compensation insurance may not cover certain types of losses

Everyone’s needs are different, and a workers’ compensation claim can be a suitable solution to your current circumstances. However, our firm wants to explain every option to you, and filing a workers’ comp claim may not be your only option.

We May Sue for the Compensation You Deserve

Workers’ compensation insurance protects employers in the construction sector from most injury-related legal action outside the workers' comp system. The law generally prohibits injured workers from suing employers, as they must obtain the most available compensation through workers’ comp.


However, there are many cases where a construction accident victim can sue, and should. These cases include:

  • If a third party (like a safety equipment manufacturer) is responsible for a construction worker’s injuries
  • If the employer does not have active workers’ comp insurance when the injury or illness happens
  • If the injured party is not employed by the employer covered by workers’ compensation insurance 

Our attorneys give advice based on each client and prospective client’s unique circumstances. As we gather all relevant information about your case, we will explain whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit.

How Our Firm Will Fight for Your Financial Recovery in Woodstock

Your Woodstock construction accident lawyer from our team will allow you to focus on your health. We can handle every step in your case, including:

Developing a Personalized Case Strategy

We must weigh several considerations when forming your case strategy, including whether to file a workers’ compensation claim or lawsuit. We will craft our approach around your unique circumstances.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

If a workers’ compensation insurance provider (or any other insurer) is part of your case, we will:

  • Lead all communications with insurance companies
  • Ensure that insurers have all relevant information about your losses
  • Provide evidence of fault to insurers (if they don’t already have it)
  • Coordinate all appointments and conversations with insurers

You may need to give one or more recorded statements to insurers. The insurance company may also have a say over which doctor you see (at least initially). Our team will protect you during such interactions.

Protecting You from Bad Faith Tactics

The insurance claims process does not always go smoothly. Insurance companies can take several measures to try and avoid financial liability, including:

  • Accusing you of being impaired
  • Accusing you of engaging in horseplay
  • Denying your claim
  • Delaying the claims process
  • Extending a lowball settlement offer

You may face similar tactics if you file a lawsuit rather than (or in addition to) an insurance claim. We will protect you from such tactics, too.

Securing Relevant Evidence from the Construction Accident

We will obtain all evidence that is relevant to your insurance claim or lawsuit, including:

Awarded Top 40 Under 40 by The National Trial Lawyer in Atlanta, GA.
  • Witness accounts
  • Expert testimony about how or why the accident happened
  • Video footage of the accident
  • An employer’s incident report detailing the accident
  • Any other evidence that is relevant to your case

The evidence is different in each case. In every case, though, we obtain and present all evidence to support our client’s case for compensation.

Documenting the Details of Your Damages

We will make it explicitly clear how the construction accident has harmed you. Your damages will almost certainly include:

  1. Economic damages: These tend to have a clear financial value, with medical expenses and lost income being prime examples
  2. Non-economic damages: Pain and suffering is the most common example of non-economic damages, and this can include sub-damages like physical pain and post-traumatic stress disorder

Our attorneys understand the all-encompassing toll a construction accident can take on you. We are capable and ready to calculate and document each of your damages.

Fighting for a Fair Settlement 

We will enter settlement negotiations with a clear, evidence-backed financial target in mind. This settlement target will reflect both your present and future damages.

Your Woodstick construction accident lawyer will try to resolve your case with a settlement agreement, but this depends on liable parties accepting their responsibility for your damages. It also requires insurance companies to acknowledge and offer to cover the full extent of your damages.

Leading Your Case in Court, if Necessary

When construction accident victims sue, but liable parties don’t issue a fair settlement offer, going to court is an option. If you choose this option, Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group will fight for your financial recovery in court.

Our Services Will Allow You to Focus on Other Important Matters (Like Recovery)

Best Lawyers Advisory Board

Life is often hectic, even when you aren’t injured. Suffering a construction accident may place your time at a premium. Working with a Woodstock construction accident lawyer from our team gives you a chance to heal and allow us to fight for you.

Potential Recoverable Damages in Your Construction Accident Case

Ailments suffered in construction accidents can cause devastating, potentially permanent injuries and symptoms. Still, every accident victim is unique, so we will need to consult your doctors and evaluate your damages aon an individual basis.

We may find that you deserve compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • All other damages resulting from the construction accident

Our team will speak with you, consult experts, and identify every damage that entitles you to compensation. If you lost a loved one because of a fatal construction accident, our team will determine what you have lost because of the passing.
