Common Causes of Construction Accidents & Injuries in Pawtucket
Construction sites are inherently dangerous places to work, but may become unnecessarily dangerous when proper safety measures are not taken by supervisors and those supplying construction workers with equipment and tools. While workers' compensation benefits are generally provided to cover the costs of injuries occurring on the job, certain factors may support a personal injury claim as well, which can mean a much higher recovery award for injured construction workers and their families.
The law office of Ray Pacia is qualified to handle cases arising from the many different situations that can lead to a construction site injury, such as:
- Scaffolding accidents, including falls from scaffolding and accidents caused by improperly assembled and defective scaffolding
- Ladder accidents arising from unsafe, old or improperly maintained ladders
- Defective or improperly maintained power tools
- Crane and forklift accidents
- Electrical accidents, including electrical shock, electrocutions and power line contact
- Injuries from falling objects
- Highway construction accidents involving workers beings run over or hit by passing highway vehicles
After being injured in a construction site accident, you need to talk to a personal injury lawyer with specific experience investigating and evaluating circumstances and behaviors that often cause or contribute to construction accidents. Your attorney also needs to be able to accurately assess your present medical condition, as well as future treatment needs and anticipated costs associated with your injury.

Furthermore, we have successfully handled many catastrophic injury cases, including cases involving brain injury and spinal cord injury.
