Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Representing Victims of Catastrophic Workplace Accidents

At the Warshauer Woodward Atkins, we represent people injured by construction equipment like cranes, forklifts, scaffolding, and tools and as a result of careless subcontractors. The Atlanta work injury attorneys at our firm can help you recover a financial award to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.

Despite strict rules and guidelines that are designed to make construction equipment, tools, and subcontractors safe, construction accidents involving dangerous tools and careless subs frequently occur. Serious injuries, including loss of limbs, head injuries, and orthopedic injuries, are commonly the result of construction site accidents. Our lawyers help obtain full fair and just compensation—above and beyond workers comp—when a tool, machine or a third party causes an injury at a construction site.

Common Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites can be dangerous places filled with potential hazards if proper precautions have not been taken.

While a construction site accident can occur in numerous ways, they commonly involve:

  • Unprotected openings
  • Falls from scaffolds
  • Crane accidents
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals
  • Welding accidents
  • Heavy equipment hazards

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your construction site accident, our Atlanta personal injury lawyers can help. An attorney from the Warshauer Woodward Atkins can fight for your legal right to be fully compensated for your injury.

Construction Site Accident Injuries

Construction site injuries can be severe and may involve life-threatening injuries that will require years of medical treatment and physical therapy.

The most common types of injuries suffered on construction sites include:

Our work injury lawyers in Atlanta have the experience to identify and track down the responsible parties. You will be able to focus on your physical recovery from your devastating injury without having to worry about the status of your legal case.

Lost Wages & Earning Capacity

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, the Warshauer Woodward Atkins can help make sure that your financial security is not also hurt as a result.

When construction workers get catastrophically injured and are forced out of work, the financial impact can be as devastating as the physical injuries. Unfortunately, the construction industry does not have many well-paying jobs available for workers who are temporarily unable to engage in the hard, physical labor that the profession generally requires.

Among the damages that injured construction workers may be entitled to receive are financial awards for lost wages and the loss of future earning capacity. You may have a legal right to receive money you did not earn as a result of being hurt, as well as funds you would have earned during your construction career if you had not been permanently disabled on the job.
