Construction Accidents

Construction workers recognize the risks they face on a daily basis. Accidents that occur on a work site tend to be more catastrophic with long-term, if not permanent, injuries. Recognizing the risk, construction companies must adhere to the highest standards of safety to ensure the well-being of their employees.

Regardless of an employer's standards, accidents happen beyond their control. Construction sites often have outside contractors and subcontractors performing various tasks. Acting in an inattentive or negligent manner can lead to serious, career-ending injuries.

Making Uncertain Futures More Certain

At The Law Offices of Eric J. Tatum, LLC, we have represented hard-working construction professionals in Buford and throughout North Central Georgia in accidents such as:

  • Scaffolding falls
  • Slip and falls
  • Falling objects
  • Fires and explosions
  • Electrocutions
  • Construction vehicle accident
  • Trench collapses
  • Defective tools, machinery or heavy equipment

In Georgia, as well as other states, workers' compensation exists to compensate injured workers. However, when a third party causes an accident, a personal injury claim may be an option to secure damages you cannot receive in a workers' comp claim, specifically for your pain and suffering.

Buford personal injury lawyer and founder Eric J. Tatum will tirelessly attend to every detail in recovering compensation for all the damages you suffered. As with any personal injury or wrongful death claim, we take construction accident cases on a contingency fee basis. If we do not recover damages for you, there is no fee.
