Construction Accidents

Construction in Atlanta is a dangerous business and many workers are seriously injured or killed while simply doing their job on these sites. Electrical accidents, excavation or trench wall collapses, pneumatic nail injuries that result in death and serious bodily injury.

When a worker is injured on the job in Georgia, he or she often cannot make a claim against the employer for work related injuries, as those must be handled in a workers’ compensation claim under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act.

There are certain circumstances, however, in which an injured worker is permitted to recover for personal injury damages when a party who is not the direct employer is negligent or careless insofar as adhering to safety rules and regulations on the job site.

Our lawyers handles work-site accidents that range from:

  • scaffolding or ladder accidents, crane or crane load failures, hoist failures
  • Injuries caused by defective tools and equipment such has conveyors, scissor lifts, hand power tools
  • injuries involving forklift and forklift drivers, back hoes, tractors, bulldozers and other construction equipment
  • Electrocutions involving exposed wiring, electrified piping, overhead power lines
  • Excavation site accidents and collapses
  • Drilling or digging into underground power lines

Client Testimonials
"I went to Charles after I was hit in a car accident last year. He, and especially his paralegals, were very considerate and actually cared about me. They helped me BIG time..My settlement was way more than I could even imagine. They are great about keeping you in the loop and getting your case done fast." Lauren
“Charles handled a personal injury suit that was primarily for symptoms that were not simple to demonstrate to the jury. Throughout the case Charles was professional and well prepared. We won an excellent settlement for this type of case.” Cindy
“After my case was turned down by several firms, I asked Mr. McAleer to review my case. He did, and he thought he could win it. The insurance company did not offer me one dime, even at trial and after the jury was deliberating. The Gwinnett jury returned a verdict in my favor for $300,000. I was in tears. I will always be thankful to Mr. McAleer for believing in my case and in me.” R.S.
