This also means that the injuries on the jobsite can range from fairly minor cuts and scrapes to catastrophic and fatal injuries.  Because of the likelihood that more than one company is involved in any injury on a construction site, with some companies choosing to subscribe to workers’ compensation or general liability insurance, construction injury cases can be complex and difficult to navigate for attorneys who are unfamiliar with these issues. You will need an experienced attorney who is well-versed in handling these cases in order to protect your right.

Common Causes of Construction Worker Injuries

According to OSHA, the “fatal four” causes of injuries that construction workers face most commonly on the jobsite are:  

  1. Being struck by an object that has fallen or is being moved
  2. Electrocutions
  3. Falls from scaffolding, ladders, etc.
  4. Getting caught in machinery or between equipment

These incidents can result in head injuries, brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, general back injuries, contusions, lacerations, amputations, burns, broken bones, and internal injuries.

Have You Been Hurt in a Construction Accident?

Construction injuries can mean expensive medical bills and a lengthy recovery time before you can work again.  In cases involving a very serious injury, you may not be able to work for quite some time or may be unable to work at the capacity that you could before your injury.  The stakes are very high for you and your family who depend on you.  You have rights when it comes to getting compensation to cover medical bills and lost income.  You need to be protected as a worker, especially considering the dangerous working conditions you face in the construction industry.  If you have been injured while working in construction, get the help of an attorney with us now who knows this area of the law inside and out.
