Rhode Island Construction Site Accidents Lawyer

Helping Injured Construction Workers

On a construction site, the slightest error can cause serious injuries. If a ladder isn't properly secured, someone could slip and fall. If a piece of equipment hits a power line, there is a risk of electrocution. If scaffolding collapses, equipment could fall and injure workers or pedestrians below.

I'm Richard Tallo, an experienced Rhode Island trial attorney, and I help injured construction workers determine how they can best pursue compensation for their injuries.

If you've been seriously hurt on a construction site, contact me at my offices in Providence for a free evaluation of your case to see whether you may have a valid personal injury claim. I charge no attorneys fees unless I am successful at helping you recover compensation for your injuries.

Demanding Accountability for Construction Site Dangers

Construction sites are dangerous workplaces that require detailed attention to safety. In many cases, there are different parties — including property owners, construction managers, contractors and subcontractors — who are each responsible for different aspects of a project. In Warwick, RI, Attorney Richard Gallone has been very successful with difficult personal injury cases.

The following are common circumstances where the negligent behavior of one person or company on a construction site can cause accidents harming others:

  • Lack of attention by crews
  • Inadequate training of workers
  • Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) violations
  • Equipment failures
  • Improper scaffolding
  • Defective machinery

Accidents caused by these circumstances can lead to serious injuries, including fractures, brain and spine injuries, and burns. If you've been injured in a construction site accident, you may be facing major medical expenses and may not be able to go back to work.

Exploring All Possible Sources of Compensation

Typically, workers injured in construction site accidents are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. However, these benefits may be incomplete. You may only get partial replacement wages, and you may get no compensation at all for your pain and suffering. If you are injured on a site owned by someone other than your employer, you may also have a third-party claim, which may entitle you to additional money damages.

I am experienced at helping injured construction workers pursue personal injury claims against property owners and other parties who share responsibility for their injuries.
