Construction Accident Lawyer
A construction accident can change your life forever, and cause permanent disability, blindness, head injury, fractured or broken bones, amputation, scarring, and even wrongful death. Many injured construction workers believe that Worker’s Compensation will cover all their needs, but in most cases these benefits are far from adequate. In the wake of a serious construction accident, many injured workers must cope with extreme financial hardships even when their claims have been accepted. At The Cochran Firm, our construction accident lawyers have helped hundreds of injured workers pursue lawsuits against negligent third parties that contributed to their accident, to ensure they have access to the funds needed for a complete physical, financial and emotional recovery. If you’ve been injured in an accident on a construction site, we urge you to contact one of the construction accident lawyers at The Cochran Firm today, so that you can pursue all of the compensation you deserve.

It’s not unusual for construction site accidents to leave workers with serious injuries that can keep them off the job for months, years, or even permanently. In Ohio, workers have the right to collect Workers’ Compensation benefits if they’re injured on the job, but often these benefits won’t cover all of your expenses, or they may expire before you are able to return to work. Fortunately, Ohio workers can also bring legal claims against third parties, such as equipment manufacturers and building owners, whose negligence caused or contributed to their injury. If you expect to recover fully from your construction accident, it’s likely that you’ll need to pursue compensation from these third parties.
The Cochran Firm has been representing accident injury victims for over four decades, and our attorneys have successfully represented hundreds of workers injured in construction accidents, including those involving:
- Electrical Injuries and Electrocution
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Scaffold Injuries
- Ladder Injuries
- Crane Accidents
- Trench Accidents
- Defective Equipment
- Welding Accidents
- Dropped Loads from Trucks or Cranes
- Building and Wall Collapses
- Toxic Exposures
- Forklift Accidents
- Inhalation Accidents
- Elevator Accidents
- Falling Debris
- Wrongful Death
If one or more third parties played a role in your construction accident, we urge you to contact The Cochrane Firm immediately, before important evidence is lost or destroyed. It is vital our construction accident lawyers begin investigating your claim right away, so that we can gather evidence and witness statements now. If you’ve already been approached by an insurance company for a third party, you need to contact our construction accident lawyers before you agree to anything. You must understand that the insurer you’re dealing with is not interested in your recovery, and is only looking out for its own bottom line. The Cochran Firm has never been afraid to take on even the largest corporations or insurance companies, and our construction accident lawyers will aggressively pursue your claim, at trial if necessary, to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
