Construction Site Accidents
With ladders, scaffolding, heavy equipment, commercial vehicles and other hazards, it’s no wonder that construction sites are often the cause of serious injury. While injured workers can take advantage of workers’ compensation to help facilitate recovery, sometimes workers’ compensation isn’t the only source to which workers can turn for help. In cases where a third party (not the employer) may have shared some responsibility for you or your loved one’s injuries, a separate lawsuit can yield much-needed additional compensation.
We Take Construction Site Injuries Seriously
Construction site injuries not only can create pain, disability and lost work time, but in severe cases can mean that you or a loved one is unable to continue working in the same field. That’s why it’s so important to retain committed and knowledgeable legal representation after a construction site injury.
Some common accidents and injuries that can occur on a construction site include:
- Falls from ladders/scaffolding
- Fall-protection violations
- Injuries from trench collapses
- Crush injuries
- Burns from chemical spills or explosions
- OSHA violations
- Injuries involving heavy equipment or commercial vehicles
- Mechanical failures/Design defect
- Improper training
- Failure to supervise
