Construction Injuries

Columbia, Illinois, Construction Injury Lawyer

Accidents involving construction equipment, falls from scaffolds and other injuries produce thousands of debilitating injuries and wrongful deaths each year. Columbia attorney Stephen C. Buser has more than 30 years of experience and a successful track record representing injured construction workers in Metro East and southern Illinois and Missouri.

People who have been injured in construction accidents are entitled to workers’ compensation. However, there may also be third-party defendants who have contributed to your injury and may have liability in a personal injury lawsuit.

A third party in a construction accident is anyone other than your employer or a co-worker. Examples of third parties include another contractor who is working at the same job site, a supplier that make equipment, or a delivery vehicle.

Factors that contribute to construction accidents

include workers:

  • Working on scaffolds without fall protection

  • Working on heights without proper safety harnesses and lanyards

  • Working in trenches without protection for cave-ins

  • Using defective tools

  • Dangerous construction equipment such as cranes and lifting cables
