Injuries Common to This Hazardous Job
Construction accidents have causes that are too numerous to list. However, some of the most frequent types of accidents may include:
- Falls from elevated heights
- Ladder and scaffold accidents
- Crane and heavy equipment accidents
- Electrical accidents
- Falling objects
- Demolition and excavation accidents
- Defective or missing safety equipment/procedures
Due to the nature of construction work, accidents often result in catastrophic or fatal injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, amputations and internal injuries. Even a minor injury may render a construction worker unable to return to a job that requires physical strength and involves activities such as lifting, bending, repetitive motions, walking on uneven surfaces, standing for long periods or operating heavy equipment.
While workers’ compensation will cover medical bills and provide a percentage of lost wages, it is often not enough for the injured worker and his or her family. If a third party is also responsible for the accident, we can file a separate personal injury suit for the additional compensation you need.
