Common Types of Construction Accidents
While it can be argued that construction is an inherently dangerous profession, no worker should expect to be injured on the job. Many construction accidents can be prevented if workers, supervisors, and contractors adhere to strict safety protocols. Failure to take certain precautions can cause catastrophic injuries to both workers and passersby alike, resulting in horrific spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, permanent disfigurement, and sometimes death.
Construction accidents can take any of the following forms:
- Slip and falls from scaffoldings
- Equipment malfunctions
- Electrical shocks and electrocutions
- Crushing injuries
- Construction vehicle crashes
- Falling debris injuries
- Forklift accidents
- Crane accidents
- Gas explosions
If you have been injured under any of the above circumstances as a construction worker or while visiting a construction site, you may have grounds to seek compensation through either a personal injury claim, a claim under your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, or both. Our attorneys can provide the knowledgeable and powerful support you need to pursue financial recovery for your medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and lost earning potential. If your loved one has lost their life in a construction accident, our attorneys can help you pursue an additional wrongful death claim to compensate for funeral costs, lost future income, and loss of companionship.
