Construction Accidents

Construction in Atlanta is a dangerous business. Every year, workers throughout the metro Atlanta area and across Georgia are seriously injured or killed while simply doing their job on these sites. Electrical accidents, excavation or trench wall collapses, and pneumatic nail injuries are only a few of the frightening circumstances that can result in serious bodily injury or even death.

Workers' Compensation and Construction Accidents in Georgia

When a worker is injured on the job in Georgia, he or she often cannot make a claim against their 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 compensation for personal injury damages. These circumstances include incidents in which the accident was caused by a negligent or careless party who was not the direct employer of the victim.

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.
