Construction Casualty

Deaths, significant injury and some of the most catastrophic injuries occur in the course of building construction. Contracts among owners, contractors, and subcontractors have significant effects on liability including whether a plaintiff’s employer has waived its third party contribution liability cap under the Workers Compensation Act. We have represented owners, contractors, subcontractors and employers in the context of construction personal injury claims and property damage casualty claims, including:

  • Confined space death case caused by connection source error for breathing apparatus.
  • Leg crush injury caused by crane operation in highway bridge construction.
  • Death from trench collapse.
  • Dismemberment from snapping of tow cable.
  • Electrocution
