Construction Site Accidents
Construction site accidents can occur in any number of ways. Whether your job involves work on a new house in a South Shore suburb, a high rise office building in eastern Massachusetts, a major industrial or commercial development anywhere in Greater Boston or highway construction labor, an injury on the job can jeopardize your ability to support yourself and your family. While a workers’ compensation claim can be filed for injuries in the normal course of business, other recovery is possible in a personal injury lawsuit where injuries may be attributed to parties other than your employer. An experienced legal team such as the attorneys at Kenney & Conley can help you to navigate these complex circumstances to ensure that you and your family receive the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

Massachusetts Construction Site Accident Claims
Even well-managed construction sites can be very dangerous, but the risks of construction work on any scale can be aggravated by such factors as aggressive construction schedules, poorly coordinated deliveries, poorly trained or inexperienced crews. The more complex the job the greater the precautions that must be taken to avoid severe or fatal injuries such as:
- Brain or head injuries
- Extensive burns from explosions, electrocution, or fire
- Back or neck injuries caused by falls or collisions
- Spinal cord damage resulting in paralysis
- Joint injuries to the shoulder, knee, or wrist
- Multiple fractures, including trauma to the pelvis or vertebrae
No matter the nature of your injury – whether you’ve suffered from a fall, a burn, an equipment malfunction or any other hazard – property owners, materials suppliers, the general contractor, or other subcontractors have a tendency to blame the victim. However, OSHA regulations require systems are in place to prevent injuries, and those overseeing parties may be held liable when accidents occur.
