Strong Representation for Georgia Construction Accident Victims
Construction sites are dangerous places, and workers must often put themselves in harm’s way to get the job done. It is the responsibility of the general contractor to take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of everyone on the site. Any failure in that responsibility puts all workers in danger and can lead to extremely serious injuries.
If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury on a construction site, it is important that you have a skilled personal injury attorney on your side who can protect your rights and your future. At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta, our construction injury lawyers have extensive experience representing construction workers as well as visitors to construction sites.

Construction Vehicle Accident
The majority of construction projects require the use of large vehicles that need skilled operators to ensure the safety of everyone on the site. There are no small accidents when mistakes are made with these vehicles, and construction workers can suffer extremely serious or even fatal injuries.
In addition to workers’ compensation benefits, workers may also have the right to seek damages in a separate personal injury claim. Whether your injuries were caused by operator error or an equipment malfunction, you should seek the advice of an experienced construction vehicle accident lawyer who knows the law and will fight to protect your interests.

Reliable scaffolding is a critical element on nearly every construction site. It is often required to bear heavy loads and needs to provide solid support to crews often working at extreme heights. If the frames are in bad condition or the flooring is inadequate for the job, it can create a dangerous situation for everyone on the site.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a scaffolding accident, you should seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney immediately. Even if your injury falls under workers’ compensation, you may have a claim for additional damages if negligence or a product defect contributed to your injuries. At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta, our lawyers represent clients in all types of scaffolding injury claims.
