At Sherman Law, PLLC, located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, a significant portion of our personal injury caseload is related to construction accidents. While health and safety standards are set in place to minimize the risk of accidents, there is no guarantee that such standards are maintained at every construction site. In fact, in many circumstances, it is the violation of workplace safety standards that contributes to serious accidents and resulting injuries.

If you have been injured at a construction site, whether as a passerby or as a worker, or if you are a contractor who has had an injury taken place on a construction site, taking the proper legal steps is essential.

  • Construction site falls: We represent plaintiffs and defendants in construction accident litigation involving serious falls which occur on construction worksites. We handle scaffolding accidents, roofing accidents, elevator shaft falls, ladder falls and other significant falls.
  • Heavy construction equipment: Construction sites are filled with large, heavy, powerful equipment and machinery. When this machinery malfunctions, is defective or is operated negligently, catastrophic accidents can occur. We handle cases involving forklift accidents, crane accidents and other heavy equipment accidents.
  • Electrical accidents: Construction workers frequently handle high-voltage electrical wiring.

We handle cases which involve shorted circuits, electrocutions and other electrical incidents.
