Construction accidents are a reality in the daily life of a construction worker or contractor.
As a construction accident attorney, I know that no matter how stringent the safety standards are regarding construction, all contractors and sub-contractors are at risk every day while on the job.
* Construction Accidents - Washington Law
In most cases, Washington law prohibits employees from suing their employers for injuries sustained in construction accidents, regardless of the severity. This forces such workers to seek the minimum compensation available under Worker's Compensation laws.
However, contractors, architects, manufacturers and property owners, and other's responsible for your injuries, may be held liable outside of the limited rights of recovery available under worker's compensation laws for personal injuries or wrongful deaths.
All corresponding economic losses and damages associated thereto that take place at the construction site or within the scope a contractor's employment can be recovered for you by a qualified construction accident attorney, such as Foster Law Offices.
Construction accidents can cause injuries that may require extensive rehabilitation and medical treatment. These injuries can severely limit your ability to lead a normal life.
In working on your case, I can help you get your life back together by pursuing full compensation available to you through Washington Law concerning construction accidents.

* More About Construction Accidents
As any professional involved in construction or contracting can attest, the jobsite is, by its very nature, a risky place to be.
There is no other jobsite, where numerous different professionals may all work at the same time (i.e. electricians, plumbers, architects, carpenters, roofers, masons, framers, etc).
Not only does a contractor face substantial financial risk in working on a construction project, but also face the daily risk of serious physical injury. In fact, construction accidents rank third in the rate of injury-caused deaths, following only mining and agriculture.
Some construction site hazards that result in serious construction accidents are:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Falling from a high location
- Motor vehicle crashes
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Forklift injuries
- Machinery accidents
- Falling Materials/equipment
Specific additional economic recovery available to contractors that may be unavailable to Washington employees may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental Distress
- Earnings losses
- Earnings capacity losses
- Loss of Life Enjoyment
