Concord Construction Accident Lawyers
40+ Years Representing Clients
Construction work involves various risks, and accidents are not uncommon. If you have been seriously injured while working at a construction site, you may have legal options to seek civil compensation outside of the worker’s compensation system. If a third party (an entity who is not your employer) caused an accident in which you suffered life-altering injuries, you may be entitled to life-altering compensation, including for lost wages (past and future), medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Navigating the legal process can be complex and overwhelming. At Casper, Meadows, Schwartz & Cook, our experienced attorneys can help you understand your rights and options. We will work tirelessly to build a strong case and help you seek the compensation you deserve. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn how we can assist you.

What Can I Be Compensated for After a Construction Accident?
If you or a loved one has been involved in a construction accident, it is important to understand that you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages due to time off work, including future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
Our attorneys can file a third-party claim against subcontractors, suppliers, and manufacturers of dangerous equipment and tools that resulted in injury. When construction accidents occur, they often result in severe injuries that can have a significant impact on the victim's life. In addition to physical injury, there may be emotional and financial hardships that can be difficult to overcome.
When construction accidents are fatal, family and surviving loved ones can seek compensation for:
- Pain and suffering/wrongful death damages
- Lost financial support
- Any pre-death medical expenses or pain and suffering experienced by the lost loved one
