Springfield Personal Injury and Criminal Defense

Construction Accident Injury Lawyer

Serving construction workers in Springfield, Northampton, Amherst and all western Massachusetts communities

The Law Offices of Robert H. Astor diligently handles claims on behalf of injured construction workers throughout western Massachusetts.

We understand the dangers of working with heavy equipment, below ground, and high above it. Construction accident attorney Robert Astor is experienced with general negligence laws and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and how to hold responsible parties accountable when their negligence or violation of standards injures workers.

Putting compassion and expertise to work for construction accident victims

An injured worker may collect worker’s compensation benefits. But the law also permits an injured worker to bring a claim against the owner, general contractor, and even other subcontractors present at the work site.

We also litigate claims involving defective equipment and defectively designed structures and roads that contribute to workers’ injuries.

Liability arising from accidents at construction sites can take many forms. You may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, and economic loss if you have been injured due to:

  • Falling from a ladder
  • Falling from scaffolding
  • Being struck by falling construction materials or debris
  • Falling through an uncovered floor opening
  • Being struck by equipment or machinery
  • Tripping over debris
  • Design or manufacturing defects
  • Inadequate safety inspections
  • Violations of federal and/or state safety standards
  • Chemical exposure
  • Electrocution
  • Other unsafe working conditions
