Risks of Injury at Construction Sites

Construction work can be dangerous. Heavy machinery and building materials are involved. Here are some ways that injuries may occur on a construction site:

  • A lack of safety planning and failing to identify risks on the job
  • Failing to provide personal protective equipment
  • Poorly training and supervising workers
  • Short staffing
  • Not having the necessary equipment and tools to safely perform the work
  • Continuing to work when there are signs of danger
  • Working without fall protection or supports to protect objects from falling
  • Inadequate vehicle maintenance, failing to remove a defective vehicle from service
  • Poor communication

A victim doesn’t necessarily have to prove the reasons that the injury occurred. They must prove that their injuries are the result of a workplace accident. Proving fault may be necessary for a third-party claim. Our lawyers understand what proof is required and how to document your claim.

Severe injuries in construction accidents

Construction accidents may produce severe injury, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury, concussion, loss of consciousness
  • Skull fracture and damage
  • Broken bones
  • Crushed organs, internal trauma, severe bleeding
  • Scars and burns
  • Cuts, lacerations, and bruising
  • Damage to tendons and ligaments
  • Spinal cord damage, paralysis, limited mobility
  • Damage to the senses
  • Electrocution, shock, cardiac arrest
  • Sprains and strains
  • Infection
  • Wrongful death

A construction accident can change a victim’s life instantly. Healing may be slow. A victim may have permanent injuries. Whatever the victim’s injuries and harms, they deserve the compensation and benefits that are available to them under the law.

Compensation for a Construction Accident Injury

A victim of a construction accident may deserve compensation and medical benefits.

Through the workers’ compensation system, a victim may receive:

  • Medical benefits: Medical care, including hospitalization, surgery, medical supplies, and prescriptions
  • Lost wages: Replacement of lost wages totaling two-thirds of the person’s salary up to a maximum amount. Payments are tax free for the duration of the disability
  • Specific loss: Loss benefits compensate a victim for disfigurement or loss of body function
  • Death benefits: Paid to a spouse, children, or other dependents if a workplace injury results in loss of life

Through a third-party legal claim, a victim may receive the following:

  • Cost of medical care, including current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Other financial and personal losses

The exact compensation you receive depends on what type of claim is appropriate. Workers’ compensation has its own process to bring a claim, benefits available, and proofs required. Our lawyers evaluate your situation, the benefits you may qualify to receive, and the strategy to receive your compensation.
