Our firm is regularly called upon to represent individuals who have been injured or killed while working on construction projects as a result of negligence during the construction process. These cases are highly technical and often turn on a careful analysis of the engineering and architectural documents used as the basis for the construction.
Substantial Settlements for Some Construction Accident Cases
Although these cases do not usually appear in the media, it is noteworthy that members of our firm were the primary lawyers in the well-publicized case of Falls v. Atlanta Stadium Design Team, which involved a construction worker who was killed when a light tower being installed in the Olympic Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia fell during construction. A substantial confidential settlement was reached in the case on behalf of the worker’s family.
