Construction is a dangerous field of work. Construction employees often operate heavy and dangerous equipment during long hours of work that leave little margin for error.
Even a small mistake could result in a serious injury that requires time off to recover putting them out of the workforce for weeks or months. Every day, small errors like these lead to construction workers experiencing accidents that take them out of the workplace and result in expensive medical bills and lost income.
Due to Washington State laws, construction workers are unable to sue their employers for their injuries. If your injuries were caused by a third party — such as a general contractor, suing may be an option and you might be able to receive compensation from them for your injuries.
Because of the complexity of construction accident law, it’s important to have a construction accident attorney working with you through the courtroom process.
Neglecting to hire a good construction accident attorney could be a costly mistake on your part, subjecting you to months of lost wages and medical bills that you shouldn’t be responsible for paying.
Dax Jones, of The Jones Firm, has had extensive experience working with construction accident victims and is prepared to make a case on your behalf.
Common Injuries That Construction Employees Sustain
A single list couldn’t possibly sum up the amount and severity of injuries that construction workers can suffer from due to an accident, however, below are some of the most common injuries that construction employees sustain from accidents.
Uneven footing and holes
Ladders and scaffolding
Fires and explosions
Falling debris or debris left on the ground
Injuries sustained due to a co-worker’s carelessness
If you are injured due to one of these causes, Washington State Law renders you unable to sue your employer. However, if you have been injured by a third party you may have grounds for a lawsuit.

Here’s a (non-extensive) list of defendants who may qualify as third party:
