Have you been injured in a construction site accident?
Construction sites in Kansas require physically demanding work in every type of weather conditions. Profits and convenience are sometimes put ahead of proper safety procedures by property owners, contractors and sub-contractors. An injury from a dangerous construction site may cause serious permanent injury, affecting your overall quality of life, and in the worse cases wrongful death.
Construction site accidents frequently result from:
- Ladder falls;
- Scaffolding accidents;
- Falls from heights;
- Forklift injuries;
- Crane accidents;
- Site debris accidents;
- Machinery accidents; and
- Slip-and-fall accidents on construction sites.

HIRING CONSTRUCTION SITE ACCIDENT EXPERTS
Construction site accidents require a heightened knowledge of Kansas laws that govern maintenance and operation of the construction industry, which makes construction site accident cases complex and difficult to litigate. It is often appropriate to use expert witnesses whose knowledge and ability to communicate with a judge or jury about maintenance standards for construction sites, or the manner in which your accident occurred on the construction site, that may make a difference in the outcome of your case. Expert witnesses frequently testify about:
- Maintenance standards for construction sites;
- Whether construction site employees followed safety laws designed to protect you,
- Standards or customs of reasonable care in the construction industry;
- The chain of events leading to the accident;
- Factors that may have contributed to the construction site accident, such as negligence, under-staffing, lack of supervision; or
- The foreseeability of an accident.
Expert witnesses may also help by evaluating and explaining the injuries you or your loved one has suffered from a construction site. Severe injuries may change your quality of life, your mobility, or the way you are able to complete tasks. Many construction site cases result in injuries that require victims to undergo extensive surgeries and leave life-long damage. Experts such as neurologists, surgeons, economists, life-care planners, vocational rehab and physical therapists, are necessary in cases where you or a loved one has been severely injured. It is important that you choose an attorney with enough monetary resources to hire the necessary expert witnesses if you hope to obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries.
