The Truth about Construction Accidents

In a matter of seconds, a construction worker can suffer severe injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, and more.

Some of the frequent causes of major injury on construction sites include:

  • Construction vehicle accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Falls
  • Roof accidents/skylight accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Structure collapses
  • Defective equipment

Construction jobs are among the most dangerous in the U.S. due to the extensive use of heavy machinery, the heights at which much work is performed, and the use of large building materials. Still, most construction accidents are avoidable, and it is possible to receive compensation when an employer’s mistake leads to your injury.

If you or a family member has suffered injuries on a construction site, here are just a few questions to consider:

  • Did the employer follow all safety guidelines?
  • Was all equipment in good repair and with safety mechanisms in place?
  • Were all workers at the site given proper training and supervision?

The fact is, sometimes companies take shortcuts; for example, they may rush to complete a job even though a piece of heavy machinery is broken. Or, perhaps guardrails were not installed along a railing. In other cases, simple incompetence or poor decisions lead to incidents that cause serious injury.

Spinal Cord Injuries Caused by Construction Accidents

Spinal cord injuries can be devastating, resulting in symptoms ranging from pain to quadriplegia. Spinal cord injuries require immediate and ongoing treatment that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, followed by a lifetime of rehabilitation and therapy.

For construction workers, this kind of injury can prevent them from ever working again. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation, but these claims often don’t cover all the expenses that come with this dramatic change in your life: the doctor’s visits, the adaptive equipment, and the income you could be making if you weren’t injured.

A skilled construction accident attorney can not only fight for you to recover all current medical expenses but also your future medical and living expenses.

Helping You Pursue the Compensation You Deserve

If you or a family member has been injured, are you paying the price for an employer’s bad actions? Construction accident injuries are usually extremely complex, and many large companies arm themselves with vast resources in an effort to avoid taking responsibility for accidents. It’s easy to feel powerless if you’re up against this.

Furthermore, construction accidents happen lighting fast and on sites with crews from different contractors using equipment from different manufacturers. Your best hope for fair compensation is working with an attorney who can thoroughly investigate your accident and work to prove the cause of your debilitating injuries.

During a no-obligation consultation, you will receive all of the information you need to make an informed decision about your legal options. You do not deserve to be punished for the oversight and neglect of others.
