Construction Work Injury Attorneys in Vermont

Helping Employees Fight for Fair Compensation

Construction workers and artisans face the risk of injury every day, whether they are working on a residential renovation or a major commercial development. A construction site presents many situations that can result in injury to a worker. You might operate machinery or work on scaffolding or a rooftop. You might spend your day constantly bending and lifting, or using repetitive motions. Carpenters, electricians, masons, roofers, plumbers, laborers, elevator repair technicians and other types of construction workers may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if they are injured while doing their job. Even if you work on a 1099 and do not carry WC insurance for yourself, the general contractor may be considered your “statutory employer” and owe you benefits, if you are injured on the job. It doesn’t hurt to call us and find out if you might be covered.

You enjoy your work and take pride in what you do. You didn’t ask to be hurt. Our experienced Vermont construction accident attorneys at Biggam Fox Skinner have represented hundreds of hardworking people like you and gotten millions of dollars in settlements for them.

How Do Industrial and Granite Workers Get Injured?

Though most physical injuries to granite workers and factory workers occur as a result of machinery accidents, short-term and long-term exposure to hazardous materials—such as glass, metal, plastics, chemicals, and medical products—can also compromise a worker’s health. Improperly enforced safety codes and regulations often result in machinery malfunctions or negligent operation, both of which put factory workers at high risk for injury and disability. Faulty safety guards and equipment, or a boss’s failure to inform factory workers of proper safety procedures, all warrant compensation for you, the worker.

Industrial and factory work are high-risk professions. Granite workers, sawyers, machine operators, furniture makers, factory workers, and warehouse workers can come into harm’s way through work that involves heavy machinery, heavy lifting, and repetitive motion. Spending your day in the granite quarry or on the factory floor is hard work and the injuries can be serious. If you are injured on the job, you may be eligible for compensation, and our Vermont industrial injury lawyers can help.

Let Biggam Fox Skinner Help You

A fall from a lift, scaffold, or roof can cause debilitating, long-term injuries, as can working with faulty or improperly maintained equipment and machinery. You may have been exposed to hazardous materials like asbestos, lead, or chemicals. Perhaps your boss is rushing to finish a project and expects you to work overtime or in unsafe weather. Maybe you aren’t given the personal protective equipment you need to do your job safely. All these situations could put you at risk and entitle you to receive workers’ compensation benefits if you are injured. Even if no one is at fault, you should be entitled to benefits if you were hurt at work.
