Construction Accidents

A construction site is one of the most dangerous places to work in North Carolina and the United States. The general contractor and all subcontractors are required to provide a reasonably safe site, to warn of hazards inherent in the site and work, to hire careful employees, to coordinate job safety and to supervise compliance with safety specifications. Despite this, Asheville construction sites are filled with danger and as a result Buncombe County construction accidents happen every day. An injury can devastate your future if you make a living in the Asheville construction industry. Taking legal action can help you live free from financial worry even if you are unable to return to your job. Many types of construction accidents causing injury or death are caused by the negligent actions of others.

We have helped Asheville victims pursue fair and just compensation for the following types of construction accidents:

  • crane accidents
  • scaffolding accidents
  • compressed gases
  • skylight installation falls
  • roof crush accidents
  • floor opening falls
  • logging accidents
  • welding accidents
  • mesothelioma and asbestos disease
  • benzene cancer
  • work-related auto accidents

Common injuries that occur at Asheville construction sites include:

  • Broken and/or fractured bones (arm, neck, leg, back)
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Electrocution
  • Burn Injuries
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Wrongful Death

The owners, architects, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment can be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions when an Asheville construction site accident occurs. Severe injuries suffered by pedestrians and those walking past/through a construction site can be devastating. There is frequently no light or moderate work available because construction work is usually heavy duty. A serious injury can result in the loss of one’s career.

We have seen too many households fall apart over this tragedy, and we know how to help our clients get the compensation they deserve. You need an attorney who is experienced in dealing with construction accident injuries and occupational fatalities. The Buncombe County personal injury attorneys at Fisher Stark, P.A. understand construction sites and the injuries they can cause.
