Portland Construction Injury Lawyer

Construction jobs are among the most dangerous in the United States. Every week, individuals in this field are seriously hurt or even killed. At Paulson Coletti Trial Attorneys PC, we work with clients who have suffered severe injuries or who have lost loved ones.


Our Portland personal injury lawyers accept cases that we believe in; cases we are confident that we can win. Because we are passionate about pursuing justice, we work hard to help our clients stand up for their rights even against the most formidable opponents — and our track record proves that we have the resources and the ability to do so effectively.  Recent verdicts and settlements include:

  • Confidential settlement for young father killed when subcontractors created a dangerous condition at construction site.
  • Gamalski v. Winco, Inc. $7M verdict for a man who fell to his death while suspended from a helicopter fixing electrical lines.

Risks Faced by Portland Construction Workers

Occupational hazards associated with the construction industry include, but are not limited to:

  • Chemical / electrical burns
  • Falling heavy objects
  • Crane accidents
  • Machinery malfunction
  • Electrocution
  • Exposure to harmful chemicals such as asbestos
  • Explosions / fires
  • Falls from scaffolding

Numerous state and federal laws are designed to protect workers. At the national level, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) details safety regulations that must be observed by employers in the United States. Whether you were hurt in a machinery accident or are navigating a Portland burn injury lawsuit, our lawyers can help.

When injured by a General Contractor, Sub Contractor or other person who is not your direct employer, Oregon’s Employer Liability Law and Safe Employment Act give you, as an injured worker, rights beyond just workers’ compensation.
