Columbus Construction Accident Victims Need an Aggressive Ohio Work Injury Lawyer

A construction worker has one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. Thousands of accidents are reported by construction workers every year in the United States. Serious workplace injuries are far too common on construction sites in Ohio. Workers sometimes fall from rooftops or scaffolding or sustain serious injuries in a slip and fall accident.

Construction accidents demand the skills of an experienced Ohio workplace accident attorney. Don't let insurance companies or your employer decide what happens to you. Let an aggressive Columbus personal injury lawyer fight for you. At the Smith Law Office, we understand how to stand up to the insurance companies and demand full and fair compensation for clients injured in construction accidents.

The following are some of the types of accidents we see at construction sites:

  • Accidents involving cranes
  • Electrocution accidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Falls from ladders and roofs
  • Injuries due to holes in floors
  • Lifting injuries
  • Accidents related to machinery and equipment defects
