If you are a construction worker who has been seriously injured on the job, you have probably been told the only compensation you can receive for your injuries will come from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. While workers’ compensation is generally the only recourse injured employees have against their employer, there are many situations in which you can sue and recover damages for your on-the-job injuries outside of the workers’ compensation system. This is known as a third-party claim. A third party claim arises when the injury is caused by the negligence of someone other than your employer and its employees, i.e., a third party.

You were injured by the negligence of a general contractor or subcontractor while working on a construction site. You may be able to bring an ELL claim against the other contractor under Oregon’s Employer Liability Law (“ELL”).

You were injured by dangerous conditions existing on the land where you were performing your job. You may be able to bring a premises liability claim against the landowner.

You were injured by a defective piece of equipment or machine while on the job. You may be able to bring a product liability claim against the manufacturer of the equipment.

If a third party directly injures you while on the job, you may be able to bring a personal injury lawsuit against that person. For example, this occurs frequently when an employee who is driving for work, is involved in a car accident caused by another driver.

You were injured by a toxic substance while on the job. You may be able to bring a toxic tort claim against the manufacturer of the dangerous substance.

“A competent, professional, and trustworthy advocate.”

Travis represented me in an auto accident claim this year. Dealing with an accident can be overwhelming and anxiety producing. Travis was so helpful in explaining each step of the process. He was proactive and kept me informed as needed. I felt relieved to have such a competent, professional, and trustworthy advocate. I highly recommend his services…

“Travis negotiated to perfection.”

I was in my first car accident last November. I had no clue how complicated this was going to be. From the insurance/medical authorizations and reports to the vehicle rental, estimates, and repair process I was overwhelmed. I was also in a lot of pain during this time. Travis took over so I could focus on healing…

“Travis couldn’t have been better.”

Travis represented me in a personal injury and punitive damage claim in an incident where I was hit by a drunk driver. The case lasted roughly two years and was mentally and emotionally trying. That being said, Travis was helpful throughout and made sure that every move made in the case was broken down and that I understood clearly what was going on…

What Types Of Accidents Occur Most Often At Construction Sites?

Construction accidents lead to very serious injuries requiring substantial medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. According to the National Safety Council, the annual cost of workplace injuries is an astounding $198 billion. The most common injury causes include:

Falls from Elevation. Falls are the number one type of accident experienced on construction sites and account for 40% of all construction accident injuries. Falls are also the second costliest construction injury. Typically, falls occur from unsecured ladders, collapsing ladders, concrete forms, scaffolding, movable platforms, collapsing surfaces, ramps, unprotected floor openings, and wall openings or unprotected building edges. Oregon and US OSHA regulations clearly establish the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all construction walking or working surfaces have the structural integrity to support employees safely and that employees are protected from falling through holes or falling from edges that are under construction.

Electrical Shock. Typically, electrical shocks occur when safety procedures or practices are bypassed. These can be caused by poor installation practices such as failing to ground equipment, bypassing safety interlocks, or not using proper Lock-Out-Tag-Out (LOTO) procedures. In addition, many electrocutions are the secondary result of other accidents such as a crane striking high voltage power lines, or a truck backing into an electrical transformer.

Struck by Object. Another major cause of construction injuries results from workers being hit by moving objects. Workers can be hit by falling objects such as tools, discarded material, or unsecured construction materials; by moving equipment such as cars, trucks, cranes, construction elevators, or forklift trucks; or by equipment under high pressure such as hydraulic hoses, and pumping equipment.

Caught-in or Between. Crushing injuries are frequently the result of a worker being caught in or between moving equipment and a fixed barrier. Typical crushing accidents occur as a result of operators carelessly moving equipment and crushing a worker in the process. Crushing injuries are one of the costliest types of injury.

Powered Industrial Truck Injuries. Each year OSHA statistics chronical over 34,900 serious injuries from powered industrial trucks (forklifts, front end loaders, etc.). Typical injuries arise from rollover accidents, striking other workers, or dropping loads on other workers. These accidents produce crushing injuries, broken bones, fractured bones, and even wrongful death.

Machine or Equipment Failure. Equipment failures cause many types of injuries that result in very serious injury or death. For example, a hoisting sling breaks or becomes unstable dumping material on workers; a crane cable breaks causing the load or crane to fall; a high-pressure tank ruptures because of operator error or faulty safety shut-offs.

Thermal and Chemical Burns. Burns are very serious injuries that may require a lifetime of medical treatment and therapy. Employers in construction environments are responsible to provide specific safety procedures and training, personal protective equipment, and general fire safety equipment in order to provide a safe workplace. In spite of these actions, thousands of construction fires occur annually. When burn accidents occur they are usually the result of improper handling or storage of flammable materials and caustic chemicals, such as cleaners, solvents, and adhesives, in an environment of grinders, blowtorches, welding, and propane heaters. The severity of burn injuries can be intensified by the lack of general safety equipment such as eyewash stations, deluge stations, or proper fire extinguishers. Chemical burns are especially dangerous because they can injure or completely damage the eyes, lungs, and face.

frequently asked questions

Need more information about key topics related to Oregon construction accident cases?

You have come to the right place.



OSHA recommends: “If you believe working conditions are unsafe or unhealthy, you may file a complaint with OSHA concerning a hazardous working condition at any time. If possible, bring the conditions to your employer’s attention. If the condition clearly presents a risk of death or serious physical harm, there is not sufficient time for OSHA to inspect, and, where possible, a worker has brought the condition to the attention of the employer, the worker may have a legal right to refuse to work in a situation in which he or she would be exposed to the hazard.



While workers’ compensation is generally the only recourse injured employees have against their employer, there may be situations in which Oregon workers may also be able to sue for damages caused by on-the-job injuries. This is known as a third-party claim. A third party claim arises when the injury is caused by the negligence of someone who does not work for your employer, i.e., a third party.



Studies have shown that the construction industry has a much higher incidence of accidents and deaths than any other work-related category. Construction accidents account for 8% of workforce accidents, but 22% of the work-related deaths, and a non-fatal injury rate that is 71% higher than for industry as a whole[5]. To recover these damages, we recommend seeking the assistance of an experienced Portland construction accident attorney to lead the effort; one who knows how to recover construction injury compensation.
