Being a construction worker is one of the most dangerous occupations in the world.

  • Scaffolding, man-lift, and crane injuries
  • Trench injuries
  • Electrocutions
  • Falls at the construction site
  • Defective equipment
  • Unsafe working conditions due to lack of management oversight or other factors

At Dore Law Group, PLLC, our Kent construction accident lawyer represents clients injured in construction accidents in Auburn, Kent, Federal Way, and the surrounding towns and communities, as well as throughout the state of Washington.

Investigating the Accident

When a construction site accident occurs, it’s important to obtain as much information as possible following the accident. If the accident occurs because of defective equipment, the equipment should be safeguarded from further use to keep others safe and to ensure that it stays in the same condition as when the accident occurred. It’s also important to obtain eyewitness testimony and to take pictures or obtain other evidence of the accident site.

Company Safety Programs

In addition to investigating the construction site, it’s also important to obtain copies of any company safety manuals and other information so that we can determine whether the construction site was being operated in accordance with the company’s safety standards. Often, accidents are a direct result of failing to comply with safety standards.

Multiple Causes of Accidents

In many construction cases, there may be multiple causes that are to blame for the accident, such as unsafe work conditions and defective products. In a personal injury case, it’s important to identify all of the causes of the injury so that all of the people responsible for the accident can properly be held accountable.

Workers’ Compensation

Washington law provides for workers’ compensation benefits to workers who are injured on the job. In addition to workers’ compensation, injured workers may also be entitled to recover damages from third parties that may be responsible for causing injury. As an example, if the injuries were caused by defective equipment, the construction worker may also have a claim against the manufacturer of the equipment.
