Why You Need a Lawyer

After a serious demolition accident, you need an experienced Denver demolition attorney who can answer all your questions, advise you of your legal options, and serve as a tough advocate to protect your rights. Nearly all injured workers in Colorado are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and are prohibited from suing their employers for compensation for their injuries. However, a demolition accident may be different. In addition to workers’ compensation benefits, you may have a third-party claim for compensation if your accident was caused by the negligence of someone other than your employer.

What Causes Demolition Accidents?

Haste on the job site can lead to serious demolition accidents when those in charge are more concerned about speed than safety. Demolition should be done with proper planning and the right equipment to prevent ceilings from collapsing or walls from coming down on workers, and debris from falling on people outside the demolition site.

Demolition Site Accidents

Accidents and injuries occur much too frequently on demolition sites. The following examples of serious accidents on demolition sites were taken directly from OSHA records for 2017 and 2018:

  • Worker killed when struck by a garage door being removed
  • Worker falls through unsecured decking and suffers multiple fractures
  • Employee using a cutting torch sustains burns to the face and arms
  • Worker dismantling a metal stairway has fingertip amputated
  • Worker falls and fractures leg when a balcony collapses
  • Employee killed in a fall from the roof
  • Worker crushed and killed by a chemical storage tank
  • Employee struck and killed by falling debris in a demolition area
  • Employee crushed by a concrete block wall that fell over on top of him
  • Worker’s foot is amputated by a falling bridge

Common Injuries in Demolition Accidents

It is clear from the examples above that demolition accidents can cause serious injuries. Common demolition injuries include:

  • Head and traumatic brain injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Internal organ damage
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Death
