Car Accidents on Construction Sites

Construction sites can make for complicated injury cases. From liability issues created by multiple parties, contractors, developers, and property owners to matters of Labor Law, workplace safety regulations, and negligence, these claims demand the attention of experienced attorneys. That’s especially true when they involve motor vehicles, including dangerous construction vehicles such as:

  • Bulldozers
  • Cement Mixers
  • Dump Trucks
  • Maintenance/Utility Vehicles
  • Trenchers

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our team has been fighting for accident victims since 1983 and is available to help victims and families explore their rights following all types of vehicle accidents on and near construction sites.

Examples of the types of cases we handle include:

On-the Job Injuries

  • Run-over / Back-over / Rollover vehicle accidents involving commercial vehicles and operating equipment (the leading cause of fatal vehicle construction site accidents, according to the DoT);
  • Construction vehicle collisions with heavy machinery / operating equipment (the second-most common cause of fatal car accident-related construction accidents);
  • Struck-by injuries resulting from construction vehicles causing property damage or building collapse/falling objects;
  • Falls from heights caused by construction vehicles / commercial vehicles striking scaffolding, ladders, or construction elevators;
  • Truck and tractor-trailer accidents involving negligence and/or regulatory violations (i.e. unsecured cargo, poorly maintained vehicles, etc.);
  • Crashes involving vehicles that run over uncovered holes, trenches, exposed stakes, and other hazards;
  • Electrical injuries and electrocution caused by vehicle collisions with power lines;
  • Slips, trips, and falls involving substances, debris, and materials from construction vehicles (i.e. poorly maintained vehicles leaking oil or vehicles that create hazards left unaddressed);
