Construction Accident Attorney in Louisville
In Kentucky, construction accidents happen all too often. In 2022 alone, at least 1024 construction accidents happened in this state, leading to 271 injuries and six fatalities.
Whether you're a worker or a passerby, construction sites can be dangerous places. And when these accidents happen, they tend to leave victims with devastating injuries and overwhelming medical bills. If you or someone you love has been involved in a construction accident, you may be entitled to some form of compensation.
But you shouldn’t expect the other party to hand you an open check – this compensation doesn’t usually come without a fight. And the only time you may not need to fight for what you deserve is when the insurance company wants to offer a lowball settlement.
In fact, they’ll be very cooperative, hoping to have you sign the dotted lines, which often strips you of your right to take further legal action. That shouldn’t be the case when you have a Louisville construction accident lawyer from Morgan and Morgan in your corner.

What Causes Construction Accidents?
Construction accidents can occur as a result of various factors, including but not limited to the following:
- inadequate safety measures on the construction site;
- human error, especially when individuals become fatigued or distracted;
- hazardous conditions such as uneven terrain, unstable structures, or exposed electrical wires;
- bad weather conditions, such as slippery surfaces due to rain or ice, increasing the likelihood of falls and injuries; and
- faulty equipment and machinery.
What Are the Legal Grounds for Filing a Construction Accident Lawsuit?
To be able to file a construction accident lawsuit, there are certain legal grounds that need to be established. The first is negligence on the part of another party involved in the construction project. If they failed to maintain a safe work environment or provided faulty equipment that led to your injury, they may be held liable. That aside, you must also prove that you were injured and suffered damages as a result of the negligence.
Will Morgan and Morgan Fight for Me in Court?
In most cases, we do go to court. If the other party refuses to negotiate or settle, rest assured that our attorneys are skilled litigators who are not afraid to go to court to advocate for your rights in front of the judge or jury. This explains why we’ve been able to recover more than $15 billion for the injured over the last 35 years.
What if I Cannot Afford an Attorney?
You shouldn’t worry about that. Our construction accident lawyers often work on a contingency fee basis, meaning the fee is free unless we win.
Can I Sue if the Accident Happened at My Workplace?
In many cases, workers' compensation insurance is the primary avenue for seeking benefits after a workplace accident, including those that occur at construction sites. There are exceptions to this rule, though. If your employer intentionally caused harm or didn't carry workers' comp insurance as required by law, you may be able to file a lawsuit against them directly.
Who Can I Sue for a Construction Accident?
Liability may fall on multiple parties involved in the construction project. These parties could include but are not limited to contractors, subcontractors, property owners, architects, engineers, equipment manufacturers, and even government entities overseeing permits and regulations.
