Construction Site Accidents Overview
At AlderLaw, we understand that construction sites can be dangerous places. Working with heavy machinery and in hazardous environments day in and day out can lead to serious injuries and even death. Workers are protected at the state and federal level, but unfortunately, many employers choose not follow the law in order to save time and money and in doing so, put the lives of their employees at great risk.
Our skilled trial attorneys handle all types of construction accident cases caused by the negligence or carelessness of an employer or company.

Construction Site Accident Lawsuit Verdicts and Settlements
On-the-job injuries are often some of the most serious injuries, and AlderLaw has achieved tremendous success in helping the victims of these construction site accidents recover the financial compensation they deserve.
- AlderLaw received a $3.6 million verdict in Riverside, California, for a plumber apprentice who was injured by a backhoe while working in a trench. The man developed a chronic pain disorder after he suffered an amputated toe in the accident.
- AlderLaw received a $1.8 million verdict for a worker who suffered broken ankles when the scaffolding he was standing on at a construction site gave way and he was thrown to the ground.
Expert Case Development and Trial Work
AlderLaw maintains an extensive library of research on, and prior testimony from, most of the experts used by the insurance industry. This library, plus Mr. Alder’s extensive personal experience with most of these witnesses in deposition and at trial, allows AlderLaw to vigorously cross-examine these experts and expose them as one-sided advocates for the defendant – not unbiased truth tellers, as they claim to be. At the same time, AlderLaw works hard to hire the best and the brightest engineers in the accident reconstruction field to show the jury what truly happened in the accident.
AlderLaw’s superior technology is an important edge, and we often present animated recreations of the accident so the jury can see for themselves exactly what happened, and why the plaintiff’s version of events is the correct one. Clear and easy to understand demonstrative evidence – such as animation, video, photographs or illustrations of the accident scene – goes a long way towards winning a trial.
AlderLaw has a proven track record of taking insurers and big business to trial and winning big verdicts.
