Heavy Equipment and Construction Site Accidents

Protecting Clients After Heavy Equipment Injuries

At the law office of Roger T. Castle, we have over 35 years of experience representing workers in Denver and throughout Colorado who have been injured on construction sites and in accidents with heavy equipment. We understand the all the critical legal aspects of the case, but we also understand the "mechanics" of the case. We understand how the equipment operates. If you have been injured, contact us online or call 303-731-0485.

Heavy Equipment Can Cause Life-Altering Injuries

There are numerous industries that use heavy equipment on a daily basis. Although just like any other product this equipment should be designed to be safe, heavy equipment manufacturers and construction companies too often cut corners. We have successfully represented workers who were injured in accidents with heavy equipment, including:

  • Forklifts
  • Dump trucks
  • Backhoes
  • Front end loaders
  • Bucket loaders
  • Bobcats
  • Skid steer loaders
  • Trenchers
  • Excavators
  • Cement mixers and pumps
  • Snow plows
  • Road graders

Roger T. Castle is familiar with the safety institutes, industry standards, and workplace instructions that explain how heavy equipment should be designed, manufactured and used. When he represents workers who have been in an accident, he uses that knowledge and information to prepare the case and to keep the "at-fault" parties honest.

Construction Site Injuries and Products Liability

In the area of premises liability and construction site injuries, we have successfully pursued negligence claims involving: building or construction collapses, natural gas explosions, propane gas explosions, elevator crashes, construction site falls, stairway collapses, scaffolding collapses, forklift collisions, and dangerous or poorly maintained walkways and parking lots. We are already familiar with the applicable workplace safety rules and regulations.

On the Job Injuries

If the accident in which you were injured occurred while you were working, it is important to work with an experienced attorney in this field. While you are likely entitled to worker's compensation benefits, you will need an additional attorney if the injury was caused by the fault of someone other than your employer or co-employee. We can help coordinate any claims against the "at-fault" party with your workers' compensation insurer and your workers' comp attorney. Long before your worker's comp claim is finalized, we need to talk with the workers' compensation insurance to share information and investigations about the "at-fault" claims.

After a heavy equipment or construction site accident, we can help you protect your rights. Don't wait until your worker's comp claim is over. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the more likely it is we will be able to prove your legitimate claims against those who were "at-fault".
