Construction Accidents

Construction is one of the most dangerous types of work. If you suffer injuries in a construction accident, or you lose a loved one in a fatal construction accident, workers’ compensation probably provides benefits. In some cases, you may also be entitled to make a personal injury or wrongful death claim against one or more third parties. At the Cleveland law firm of Caravona & Berg, we help individuals and families throughout Ohio recover the full compensation provided by state workers’ compensation and personal injury laws for construction accident injuries.

Our Experience and Commitment to Clients

Our practice at Caravona & Berg focuses exclusively on representing individuals and their families in all types of Ohio injury cases, including workers’ compensation, personal injury, and wrongful death claims arising from construction accidents. We have decades of experience and have recovered millions of dollars for our clients. Our record of securing jury verdicts and settlements attests to our accomplishments and demonstrates our superior legal skills and unwavering dedication to achieving justice for our clients.

We attribute our success to excelling at what we do by working harder and preparing more thoroughly than the opposition, in addition to building trust in our client relationships. Every client knows that we do everything within our power to achieve a just and fair result for them. We draw on our in-depth understanding of the applicable laws and the tools provided by the legal system to recover the compensation our clients deserve.

Effective client communication is a top priority for us — and is one of our significant strengths. In communicating with clients, we have a compassionate, straightforward approach. We firmly believe that honest, forthright communication is the only way to build a strong working relationship with a client. Our approach includes listening carefully to all your concerns, answering all your questions, and making certain you have reasonable expectations about the legal process.

Unlike some law firms that settle every case, we do not hesitate to take a case to trial when an insurance company is not willing to offer fair compensation to a client. We never charge you to talk with us about your accident. If you retain us to represent you, we charge fees on a contingent basis, so you pay us nothing unless we recover compensation for you.

Construction Accidents in Ohio

Whether construction involves highway and road work, excavating and building to erect structures, or another type of project, a construction site is a hazardous place. Workers perform their jobs amid heavy machinery, at great heights, and on uneven terrain. Falls are the leading cause of construction injury and death, followed by being struck by an object or piece of equipment. Being caught in or between pieces of equipment is another significant risk, as is electrocution. There are many other accident risks on a construction site as well.

The types of injuries are as varied as the circumstances in which they occur. Brain injury, back injury, broken bones, burns, and eye injuries are some of the most common types of injuries. Other catastrophic injuries happen in a construction site accident too.

In most instances, an injured construction worker is covered by workers’ compensation through their employer and receives workers’ comp benefits. But on a construction site, an injury often results from the negligence of a person not associated with the injured worker’s employer. When that happens, the injured worker may have a personal injury claim against one or more third parties, in addition to receiving benefits under workers’ compensation system.

A personal injury action against a third party for construction accident injuries must be pursued separately from the workers’ compensation claim. Getting help from a lawyer is essential when a construction accident results in a potential claim against one or more third parties.

At Caravona & Berg, we handle both workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims. When you count on us for help with construction accident injuries, we have the knowledge and skill to pursue all avenues for getting the full compensation provided by the legal system. For families who lost a loved one in a construction accident, that includes pursuing an action under the Ohio wrongful death law when necessary.

Our team at Caravona & Berg has the experience and skills to fully investigate and analyze a crane accident, or any other type of construction accident, to determine the cause of the accident and pursue compensation from all responsible parties, in addition to guiding the injured worker through the workers’ compensation process.
