Accidents At Construction Sites And Highway Construction Zones
The safety of construction sites and highway construction zones is often compromised by poor communication, third-party contractors and negligence. When OSHA or other safety violations occur, when equipment is left too close to the roadside or when proper procedures are not followed, construction companies and employers can be held financially liable.
At the law office of Bonifield & Rosenstengel, our personal injury attorneys investigate the cause of construction site and highway construction zone accidents in order to determine what happened. If necessary, we consult safety experts, engineers and other professionals to determine what happened and why.
In order to properly assess the financial impact of our client’s injuries, we work with medical experts and medical economists who can determine the scope and cost of an injury sustained in a construction site or highway work zone accident.

Third-Party Liability And Construction Zone Accidents
If you are a construction worker and were injured by a third party while working in a construction zone, you are eligible to receive workers’ compensation. However, workers’ compensation may not be enough to cover all of your lost wages and medical expenses if your injuries were extensive and serious.
In order to recover the compensation you need, we can seek damages against the third party that caused your injuries. In construction zones, this could include an electrician, plumber, concrete worker, heavy machinery operator or motorist.
