No one ever really expects a construction site accident to happen to them. One minute they may be swinging a hammer and the next a heavy piece of metal falls from above, or maybe they’re operating heavy machinery and suddenly something goes wrong. Accidents happen every day on construction sites and — quite often — it is not the fault of the person who receives the injury. Have you been injured in a construction zone of some kind? If so, the experienced personal injury attorneys at The Musgrove Trial Firm in Norcross and Peachtree Corners, Georgia want to help.

- Defective products
- Sudden collapses or unsecured flooring
- Dropped objects
- Loose or ineffective wiring
Common Injuries on Construction Sites
A worker who is hurt on a construction site can face any number of injuries, from losing an arm, finger or leg to getting a concussion to being paralyzed. Catastrophic accidents can even lead to the untimely death of a construction worker.
