Hawaii Construction Accident Attorneys: Get Help Now

Seek Justice for Construction Injuries in Hawaii - Call (808) 740-0633

Construction sites are some of the most dangerous work areas in the United States, and Hawaii construction sites are no exception. The rate of construction site deaths in 2009 in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control, was a startling three times that of the average worker. There are comprehensive safety measures and regulations in place to limit the hazards to construction workers, but it is an unfortunate reality that those protections are not always enacted as they should be.

Our Hawaii construction accident attorneys have helped numerous clients pursue successful injury claims and we are committed to doing the same for you. When you or someone you care about is hurt through the negligence of an employer, co-worker, or equipment manufacturer, you deserve compensation. Let us help you get the money you need for your injuries.

Contact us online or by phone at (808) 740-0633 for a free, confidential consultation.

Common Hawaii Construction Accident Scenarios

OSHA has strict rules for how construction sites are supposed to operate, rules designed to protect workers from a variety of hazards. Unfortunately, there are times when these safety regulations are not observed as they should be and accidents occur that cause serious injuries like brain injuries, spinal injuries, and burn injuries.

Common construction site accidents include:

  • Forklift accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Electrical accidents
  • Defective equipment
  • Falling objects
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals

Whether your injury was caused by the negligence of an employee, violation of OSHA standards, or a defective piece of equipment, our Hawaii construction accident attorneys can fight to pursue the maximum compensation you deserve.

Maximizing Your Compensation After a Construction Injury

One of the more frustrating aspects of construction injuries is that they are often life-altering. While appropriate medical care can help prevent further damage, injured workers may be forced to deal with the fallout of their injury for the rest of their lives. They may be unable to work in the same capacity they once were or may have to submit to ongoing medical care to treat the long-term symptoms of their injuries. Even seemingly minor injuries can have long-lasting effects.

Our construction injury lawyers in Hawaii pursue the maximum possible reward for your injuries because we know the struggle you face following an injury. To cover medical costs and lost time at work may require more money than you can possibly come up with on your own. If we win your case, we can help you make certain that both you and your loved ones are properly cared for.

Understanding Workers' Comp and Third-Party Claims in Hawaii

When you are hurt at work, you will typically be taken through the workers’ comp system. The company will probably pay for your initial medical care following the accident and may give you some compensation for missed work. However, in most cases, the compensation you get from workers’ comp is not enough to cover all of your expenses, medical or otherwise.

While you cannot file a civil suit against your employer for construction site injuries, you may be able to pursue further compensation from a negligent third-party.

Some examples of third-party liability include:

  • Manufacturers, distributors, and installers of defective equipment
  • Subcontractors or delivery services
  • Negligent motorists in cases of roadside construction

A successful personal injury case requires you to prove a third-party was completely at fault, or at least partially at fault, for your injury. The team of Hawaii construction accident lawyers at Davis Levin Livingston has a long history of proving fault in construction accident cases. We know what it takes to gather the appropriate evidence and present a compelling argument to the court on behalf of our clients. Although the outcome of a case can never be guaranteed, you can rest assured that we will do everything possible to establish fault in your case and get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
