Construction Accidents

North Carolina Construction Site Accident Lawyers

Winston-Salem Scaffolding Fall Attorneys

If you or someone in your family was severely hurt or killed in a construction accident, contact the AV-rated* trial attorneys at Comerford & Britt for a free consultation about your legal options for compensation. In serious accidents on the job, we emphasize prompt and thorough investigation, preservation of key evidence, and expert analysis of all the facts necessary to prove liability and the full measure of your damages.

When companies abuse their power by delaying or refusing to pay fair and just insurance claims, the only way for Americans to hold them accountable is in our courts. At Comerford & Britt, we level the playing field so that individuals can hold powerful insurance and construction interests accountable for their misconduct.

Our lawyers handle construction cases involving such accidents and injuries as the following:

  • Scaffolding falls, bucket truck accidents, and falls from roofs or ladders
  • Excavation accidents
  • Electrical utility accidents involving transformers or wires
  • Heavy equipment accidents involving cranes, bulldozers, hoists, or other machinery
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Injuries caused by falling objects or debris
  • Defective power tools or equipment

Although North Carolina law generally prohibits an injured employee from suing the employer for personal injury damages, with workers' compensation the exclusive remedy in most cases, there are many situations in construction work where a third party can be held liable for the injury. At Comerford & Britt, our lawyers will make a careful analysis of the circumstances of your accident, and we will often find that another subcontractor, a property owner, or the manufacturer of defective equipment or machinery can be held financially responsible to you--even while you're collecting workers' compensation benefits.

Our attorneys handle the most severe injury accident cases, including those involving gas explosions, spinal cord injuries, electrocution, or traumatic brain injury.

We accept construction accident cases on a contingent fee basis. That means that we collect an attorney's fee only if we successfully settle your case or win at trial.

Our ability to fly to remote sites in our own aircraft gives us an additional advantage in seeing critical evidence of liability quickly at first hand.
