Common causes of accidents
There are many different ways workers can be caught between objects in a construction accident. Some of the most common causes include:
- Inattentive construction workers (injury victim gets crushed between two machines or a fixed object due to driver or drivers not paying attention)
- Defective construction equipment
- Improperly secured construction equipment or support structures
- Improperly built support walls (resulting in trench collapses)
- Inexperienced construction workers
There are many other reasons why caught between construction accidents happen. And each one requires its own unique approach. That’s why it’s important to meet with a lawyer at our law firm as soon as possible.

You might think you don’t need a lawyer if another construction worker clearly caused your injury. All you have to do is tell your employer and your insurance company what happened and they will take care of everything.
Don’t be so sure. In most cases, insurance companies only care about one thing – making sure you get as little money as possible after your accident. They know that the financial impact of such an accident can often add up to thousands or millions of dollars over the course of your lifetime. That’s why it’s critical that you have our legal team on your side right away.
When you have us working for you, you can demand the respect you deserve from insurance companies and anyone else who stands in your way for justice. And if they refuse to cooperate, we’re prepared to take them to court on your behalf. Get tough after your construction accident. Get Giampa Law.
