Alabama Construction Industry Statistics
Information gathered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that there are about 7.2 million wage and 1.8 million self-employed workers in the construction field in the United States.

At Wettermark Keith, we can guide injured construction workers and other parties through any type of accident claim in Montgomery. We have the experience, resources, and lawyers to handle all types of cases. First, we can identify the cause of your accident and injury or illness. Then, we can bring a case against the correct defendant(s) on your behalf. This could be your employer, a site manager, a supervisor, a product manufacturer, a property owner, or another party. Finally, we can fight for fair compensation for your various damages.
Negligent Actions Cause Accidents
Negligent actions taken by other workers, foremen, managers, vehicle operators, or contracted employees have the potential to cause serious injuries. In some cases, these actions tragically lead to the wrongful death of one or more people. Injuries sustained by workers in construction accidents can include:
- Chemical Burns
- Loss of Hearing
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Brain Injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft-tissue injuries
- Serious illnesses
- Wrongful Death
Speak with an experienced construction injury attorney at our law firm today if you have been injured or lost someone close to you. All too often claims of workers’ compensation do not adequately meet the needs of the victims of these accidents. A claim of personal injury or wrongful death against the negligent party responsible may be the only way to recover financially from one of these accidents.
What Is Your Construction Accident Claim Worth?
At Wettermark Keith, our lawyers went into personal injury law for a few different reasons. The most important is that we wish to help people. We are here for all kinds of workers in Alabama, including seriously injured construction workers. We recognize the need for legal advocacy for victims of workplace accidents. While most injured workers may think they’re only eligible for workers’ compensation, we can help them recognize other outlets for recovery. This could maximize their financial relief.
If someone negligently or intentionally caused your workplace accident in Montgomery, you might have grounds for a personal injury case against that person. If it’s your employer, wait to accept a workers’ compensation settlement. Accepting a settlement will automatically take away your ability to file an injury claim against your employer, even if you have evidence of your employer’s fault. If the at-fault party is someone other than your employer, however, you might be eligible for both forms of recovery.
A personal injury lawsuit could result in financial compensation for your past and future medical expenses, disability costs, lost income, physical pain, and emotional suffering. Meanwhile, a workers’ compensation claim in Alabama could reimburse you for your medical expenses, disability-related losses, wrongful death damages, and two-thirds of your lost wages. Discuss the potential value of your injury claim and the possibility of a lawsuit with our construction accident lawyers today.
