Construction Injuries Lawyers in Fairfax, VA

Protecting Virginia’s Construction Site Workers in Fairfax, Woodbridge & the Counties of Fairfax & Prince William

Construction is a vital industry but also one of the most dangerous. Workers face numerous hazards daily, increasing the risk of work-related injuries. These sites are inherently hazardous work environments due to the complex nature of the tasks involved, the use of heavy machinery, and the dynamic, often unpredictable nature of construction projects. 

The physical demands of the work, coupled with the necessity of adhering to strict timelines, further increase accident risks. This combination of factors contributes to a higher incidence of work-related injuries within the construction industry compared to many other sectors. 

Given the nature of construction work and the potential complexities of workers' compensation and third-party claims, securing legal representation is essential to protecting injured workers' and their families' rights and well-being.

Why Construction Sites are High Risk

Construction sites are inherently high risk due to many factors:

  • Working at heights: Falls from scaffolds, ladders, and roofs are a leading cause of severe injuries and fatalities in construction.
  • Heavy equipment: Operating machinery like cranes, forklifts, and bulldozers poses a constant risk if proper safety protocols aren't followed.
  • Falling objects: Tools, materials, and debris pose a serious threat of injury if not appropriately secured.
  • Exposure hazards: Construction workers can be exposed to hazardous materials like asbestos, lead, and silica dust, leading to long-term health problems.
  • Trench collapses: Improperly shored trenches can cave in, burying or crushing workers.
  • Electrocution: Working with electrical wiring or around power lines increases the risk of electrical shock.

These factors can lead to injuries ranging from fractures, neck and back injuries due to lifting heavy objects and repetitive motions, head injuries from falls and blows to the head, loss of limbs, and hazardous materials exposure causing respiratory problems, hearing loss, and cancer.

Workers’ Compensation for Construction Injuries

Virginia law mandates most construction companies carry workers' compensation insurance. 

This program provides benefits to injured workers, including:

  • Medical expenses: Coverage for necessary medical treatment related to the work injury.
  • Lost wages: Replacing a portion of your lost income while you recover.
  • Disability benefits: Compensation for permanent impairments resulting from the injury.
  • Vocational rehabilitation: Services to help you return to work in a suitable capacity.

Third-Party Claims in Construction Injuries

Sometimes, a third-party claim might be possible after a construction site accident. This applies when a party other than your employer was negligent and caused your injury. In these cases, personal injury claims may apply. 

Examples include:

  • Subcontractor negligence: If a subcontractor's carelessness leads to your injury, you may have a claim against them.
  • Equipment manufacturer defects: A faulty piece of machinery could lead to a product liability claim against the manufacturer.
  • Negligent property owner: If the property owner fails to maintain a safe work environment and you get hurt, you might have a claim against them.
  • At-fault motorists: If you were driving a company vehicle as part of your construction job duties and were injured in a motor vehicle accident by a negligent driver, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the motorist and/or their insurer.
