Construction Injury Claims

Construction work site injury claims typically involve serious traumatic injuries. For example, recent cases handled by Fallon, McKinley & Wakefield, PLLC include a worker impaled on rebar, workers hurt by a sudden release of hydrochloric gas, a worker with carbon monoxide poisoning, and a worker who suffered a traumatic brain injury from falling debris. The ever evolving rules of OSHA and WISHA, combined with the legal duties imposed by the courts, mean that multiple expert witnesses are usually required. The Washington Department of Labor and Industries is frequently involved in the initial investigation which results in a worker’s compensation lien that as a practical matter makes the Department an unnamed party to the case. The attorneys at Fallon & McKinley, PLLC have the requisite experience to handle the complexity of defending these claims.
