Construction is dangerous work, often resulting in catastrophic injury or death. Generally, injured construction workers cannot sue their employers, but instead are entitled to workers’ compensation. However, Johnston, Moore & Thompson has secured significant settlements and verdicts when the negligence of another party was to blame. In addition to workers’ comp benefits, we pursue product liability claims against the manufacturers of defective equipment or machines used on the construction site, and negligence claims against subcontractors on the same job site.
Based in Huntsville, we represent injured industrial and construction workers throughout Madison County and the Tennessee Valley. George Allen Moore is a skilled and accomplished workplace injury attorney with 35 years of experience. He has handled third-party liability claims in every type of construction accident, including:
- Crane and heavy equipment accidents
- Falls from heights
- Fires and explosions
- Scaffolding collapses
- Trench collapses
- Falling or flying objects
- Machine malfunctions
- Construction workers hit by vehicles in highway work zones
- On-duty vehicle accidents
A worker walking on a temporary bridge made from a two-by-four fell and ruptured his abdomen when the structure collapsed. After life-saving surgeries, he was totally disabled. We recovered permanent disability benefits through workers’ compensation as well as a settlement from the subcontractor responsible for the unsafe walkway.
A heavy trunk landed on a worker’s neck, resulting in loss of use of his lower extremities. We recovered full workers’ comp benefits and successfully sued the manufacturer of an artificial disc in his neck that failed.
