Grand Junction Construction Accident Lawyers
Construction Sites Are Inherently Dangerous Environments
Construction work is demanding and dangerous. People work hard in the construction industry, and when accidents happen and injuries result, construction workers should expect their employers and the insurance companies to cover their medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. However, it is rarely this simple. Construction companies and their insurance carriers fight aggressively to defend against injury claims.
At Doehling Law, our Grand Junction construction accident attorneys provide strategic, aggressive personal injury representation for clients across the Western Slope, including the Glenwood Springs, Montrose, and Aspen areas of Colorado. With decades of experience in the insurance industry, we can anticipate insurance companies' moves to prepare for negotiation and litigation.

Construction Accident Causes & Liability
If you have been hurt, the last thing you need is an inadequate compensation offer from the insurance company. With construction accident injuries come medical bills and lost wages, perhaps for a lifetime. You need compensation that will cover these losses and allow you to keep providing for your family for as long as is necessary.
Our lawyers represent clients who have suffered all kinds of construction accidents, including those involving:
- Crane or hoist accidents
- Falling debris
- Falls from heights
- Gas leaks, fires, and explosions
- Highway construction accidents
- Malfunctioning heavy machinery
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Scaffold and ladder falls
- Struck by or against accidents
- And more
Construction sites involve many parties and moving parts, so it can be tough to determine liability in these cases. This is why reaching out to an attorney as soon as you can after your accident is vital—we can conduct a thorough investigation of the accident scene and determine the cause. For example, if a machinery defect caused your accident we will go after the manufacturer. If the construction site wasn’t up to code, we may go after the contractor.
Injury claims against construction companies and their carriers can be complicated and challenging. We have the experience to help you obtain the compensation you need to get back on your feet.
