Pursuing Justice for Construction Injury Victims

St. Louis Construction Injury Lawyer

Have you been injured in a construction site accident?

The construction field has the highest amount of deaths over all other industries. Recent studies show that there are over 400,000 construction related injuries and over 1,100 fatalities every year. The construction industry alone accounts for 1 out of every 5 workplace deaths. Construction sites are dangerous because of the nature of the work.

Even with safety measures and procedures in place, these accidents occur on a regular basis. Some of the most common kinds of construction accidents are falls from roofs, scaffolds, ladders or cranes, being run over by heavy equipment, trench collapses, electrical and wiring accidents, explosions, fires, electrocution, welding accidents, being struck by falling objects, defective tools, and malfunctioning equipment.

When these accidents are serious, life as you know it may be changed forever. There may be spinal cord injuries, brain damage, paralysis, broken bones, necks and backs, paraplegia or quadriplegia. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a construction accident, it is crucial that you consult with a St. Louis personal injury attorney as soon as possible to advise you on what course of action to take.

Compensation for Your Construction Injuries

It is your right to file a claim for workers' compensation if you have suffered injuries on the construction site. Even though you are entitled to do so, insurance companies often do not award you adequate compensation to cover all of your needs, including your medical bills, disability, lost wages and rehabilitative costs.

The father and son team and associate attorneys at Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC have over 100 collective years of experience fighting for the rights of those injured in construction accidents. We know that there may be third parties such as the construction manager, property owner, and general contractor who, in addition to your employer, may also be liable for your injuries. We will do what it takes to recover the monies you need to help restore the quality of your life so it can be the best it can be under the circumstances.
