Construction Vehicle & Machinery Accidents

Many construction workers operate commercial vehicles on and off the job site. When construction workers are injured due to the negligence of another party, it is possible for the worker to pursue both a work comp claim as well as a third party tort claim against the at fault driver. In addition, when faulty machinery causes injuries on a construction site, it is possible to hold equipment companies and manufacturers responsible in addition to bringing a work comp claim. With a qualified lawyer, negligence claims involving various commercial vehicles can result in substantial settlements.

If you have been injured by the following types of construction equipment you should consider contacting an attorney:

  • Forklifts
  • Cranes
  • Dump trucks
  • Concrete mixers
  • Bobcats
  • Lift buckets
  • Road graders
  • Earth movers

It is unfair for construction workers to be saddled with expensive medical bills as a result of faulty machinery. If you or someone you know has been injured in a work vehicle or by faulty equipment in the work place, you may be entitled to additional compensation beyond workers’ comp.

Other Third Party Accidents

Due to the fact that construction sites are often exposed to the public, it is possible for accidents to occur involving vehicles and other parties not associated with the construction site itself. Auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, and trucking accidents that occur in close proximity to construction sites can have dangerous consequences for workers employed there. In all of these scenarios, legal action may be appropriate. Moreover, any third party that causes or is somehow involved in a construction worker’s injury, whether through faulty equipment, negligence, or recklessness, may be held liable.

Recovering Damages Following a Construction Accident

Though a construction accident may result in a workers’ comp. payment and/or insurance settlement, that does not mean you will receive adequate compensation for your pain and suffering. Montana’s work comp benefits are not robust and rarely make the injured person whole. Injured workers are not entitled to pursue claims for all of their lost wages or for emotional distress, pain and suffering or loss of established course of life. With an attorney advising you, it may be possible to hold negligent third parties liable for the damages you have suffered.

A skilled accident lawyer will attempt to recover damages stemming from:

  • Crushing injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Neck/back injuries
  • Lacerations/scarring
  • Broken bones
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Other mental and physical trauma
