Construction Accident Attorneys
Unfortunately, construction injuries are not uncommon. They occur in the workplace, on sidewalks, on freeways and highways, and in buildings under construction or in the midst of repairs. Because construction projects often involve extremely dangerous equipment and hazardous job sites, accident injuries can be severe, often requiring immediate medical attention. The potentially catastrophic consequences of a construction accident can greatly diminish the quality of life of both the victim and the victim’s family. Cooper Law Partners was created to help those who have been injured or the families of those killed in a job site accident.

Construction accident injuries can be quite severe, sometimes resulting in brain damage, amputation, broken bones, spinal injury, and paralysis. Sadly, injuries like these are often life-changing or fatal. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 5,190 American workers were killed in 2016.
Workers’ Compensation Isn’t Always Enough
In some cases, workers’ compensation may not be enough for someone who has been injured in the workplace. If an employer has workers’ compensation insurance, he or she is typically immune from personal injury lawsuits. However, this immunity does not prohibit lawsuits against employers if the injury is proven to be intentional. Also, a construction accident attorney may file claims against a third party such as:
- The construction site owner
- General and sub-contractors
- Prime contractors
- Architects and engineers
Successful litigation of a serious or fatal construction accident can be complicated, requiring specialized knowledge, skills, and experience. In some cases, more than one party may be held accountable for your injuries. If you have been injured, or have lost a loved one, as a result of a serious or fatal construction accident, our construction accident attorneys will help guide you through the legal process and aggressively pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
