Construction Accidents

Accidents at constructions sites are often catastrophic, due to the large and heavy machinery involved and the weight of the construction materials. Peter Thompson & Associates has investigated hundreds of construction accidents and successfully represented accident victims through careful and painstaking investigation of the accident’s cause. In a recent case, we determined that faulty maintenance by an outside maintenance company resulted in the equipment failure. In another recent case, we were able to establish that a design flaw in machinery resulted in the failure of a boom carrying heavy building materials. Our use of state-of-the-art technology and expert witnesses who specialize in construction accidents has resulted in favorable outcomes for our clients.

The ability to be able to assess why construction accidents occur requires a specialized knowledge in mechanical design, equipment maintenance, and proper workplace practices. Attorney Thompson utilizes the best experts in all of these fields to obtain the information necessary to prove his case and establish the precise cause of construction accidents.

Our firm uses the very best experts to determine the nature and extent of our clients’ injuries. Treating physicians generally are willing to provide some information about our client’s future restrictions and the future impact of his/her injuries. However, because treating doctors often do not have the time or inclination to provide a thorough analysis of the future impact of injuries on work activities and other activities of daily living, we use the best experts in the field to provide more comprehensive analysis of these issues in order to prove our cases. We find that, by providing this type of detailed and comprehensive analysis to insurance companies, we are able to settle cases favorably without having to go to court over 98 percent of the time. Insurance companies know Attorney Thompson’s reputation in court and, in the vast majority of cases, choose to settle rather than risking an unfavorable result at trial and having to pay the high the costs associated with trial.
