Colorado Springs Construction Accident Lawyers
Serious injuries can occur in any workplace, but harmful accidents are much more common in the construction industry because the very nature of the work can be hazardous. Whether heavy equipment is being used at a site or workers are performing their duties at great heights, construction accidents can be devastating and in some cases even fatal.

Colorado Construction Accidents
An accident can happen at a construction site at any time. Some of the most common types of construction accidents include:
- Being struck by a falling object
- Falls from scaffolding or other high places
- Being stuck or caught between objects or machinery
Injuries caused by a construction accident can be severe and can include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, back and neck injuries, broken bones, burns, and lacerations. Workers who have suffered these types of injuries often face a long road to recovery. Thus, it is important to obtain the compensation you need and deserve in the event you are in a construction accident.
Typically, workers who are injured on the job cannot sue their employers under general negligence theories; they instead must receive benefits through their employer’s workers compensation insurance. However, if your accident was the result of the negligence of someone other than your employer, you might be able to file a third-party claim against that responsible individual, even if you are already entitled to workers compensation benefits.

I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
Representing Injured Workers in Colorado Springs
Construction accident cases can be complicated, particularly if the person responsible for your injuries is someone other than your employer. The key to a successful construction accident case is to identify and establish the negligence of a third party who caused your injury. These third parties might be manufacturers, property owners, subcontractors, materials suppliers, or negligent equipment operators or drivers. Identifying whether one or more third parties are liable for your injuries can require extensive analysis and investigation, so if you’ve been injured at a construction site, contact a knowledgeable and experienced Colorado Springs construction accident lawyer right away.
Timeline for Filing a Construction Accident Claim
As with any personal injury claim in Colorado, it’s best to file your case as soon as possible, as there are deadlines by which your lawsuit or claim must be made. If you file your claim past this deadline, then you can lose your right to the compensation you deserve. Filing your claim in a timely manner is important not only for compensation purposes but also for preserving the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident.
