Loading/Unloading Accidents

On many sites, construction goods are constantly being loaded and unloaded. Accidents and injuries that can result include slips and falls, back injuries, brain injuries, crushed limbs, amputations, spinal injuries and other serious personal injuries.  No injury is too small to inquire at Our-Advocate.

Electric Shocks

Often, construction sites require electric cable to be aboveground and in the open. These cables can result in electric shocks that cause severe burns and even brain damage.

Products Liability

The equipment or products used on construction sites can be defective. Defective products can cause horrendous personal injury from:

  • A design defect that existed before the product was manufactured, or
  • A manufacturing defect that happened while the product was being produced, or
  • A marketing defect that arose from improper instructions or failures to warn.
Heavy Equipment

Bulldozers, cranes and other heavy equipment are common on construction sites. The sheer size and power of this equipment can result in shocking injuries if something goes wrong. Severed limbs, paralysis and even death are not uncommon in accidents involving such powerful machinery.

If you have been injured on a construction site, do not risk your case with an unproven attorney. You want a team of attorneys to fight for you, and make sure you get the compensation you deserve. You need OurAdvocate – a proven Michigan construction site accident law firm.
