There are few work places more dangerous than a construction site. With scaffolding, heavy equipment and dangerous machines around every corner, one small mistake can lead to a major accident and serious injuries. If you have been injured in a construction accident, an experienced attorney can help you explore all of your recovery options, including workers' compensation and personal injury claims.

At the Buckhead office of Bernard Hoppenfeld, Attorney at Law, we protect the rights of construction accident victims throughout the Atlanta metro region and across Georgia. Armed with over twenty five years of personal injury experience, attorney Bernard Hoppenfeld knows how to help secure full and fair compensation.

Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury Claims for Construction Accidents

If you were injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to workers' compensation. However, both the insurance company and your employer will invest significant resources into minimizing the payments they have to make. Rest assured, we will fight to secure the workers' compensation benefits you deserve. We can also help you explore the availability of disability insurance.

If a construction accident was the result of third-party negligence, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim in addition to workers' compensation benefits. We can help. Contact us for more information.

When OSHA violations lead to dangerous conditions, it is common for workers to suffer injuries in scaffolding falls, heavy equipment malfunctions, explosions, ladder falls and more. No matter the circumstances, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of construction accident victims. We will take the time to listen to your story, answer your questions, and fight for the full and fair compensation you need.

The most important thing to do after your construction accident is to get proper medical attention as soon as possible. Due to the restrictions of workers' compensation, you will have to see a doctor approved by your employer. If you are unable to get proper medical attention, we can help you gain access to the care you need.
