Workplace Accidents

Our Kansas City Work Injury Lawyers Advocate for You

Construction projects come in all sizes.  They can be relatively small, or they can be massive undertakings with multiple contractors and other companies on site. Sometimes, a construction project goes off without a hitch.  Sometimes, accidents occur, leading to serious injury and even death.

With equipment in motion, workers are in close proximity to the machinery and each other.  And if safety protocols are being ignored, the chances of an accident occurring increase dramatically.

If you’ve been involved in a construction site accident that resulted from someone’s negligence, the attorneys at VNJ will determine all parties at fault and hold them accountable.

Whether you’re a construction worker, a bystander, or a contractor, if you were the victim of a construction site accident, our attorneys are ready to fight for you. Contact us to speak with someone on our team about your rights and possible legal options.

Workplace Accident Lawyer Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have a workplace injury case?

If you or your loved one sustained catastrophic injuries or died as the result of a workplace accident or construction site accident, you may have a claim in addition to workers’ compensation. When you speak with one of our lawyers, we’ll ask questions to gather information on the details of what happened. Keep in mind that if we choose to represent you after a workplace accident, you’ll pay us nothing for our work until we recover for you. To learn more about whether you have a case, contact us at (816) 895-8800 or send us a message online.

How is a workplace injury case different from workers’ compensation?

Although you may be eligible for workers’ compensation after a catastrophic workplace accident, workers’ compensation is only against your employer and only a limited remedy.  Depending on the facts, you could also have claims against property owners, other subcontractors or even equipment manufacturers or leasing companies.

Your best move is to request a consultation with VNJ Law to learn more.
