Construction workers have one of the most important, yet dangerous, professions
The risk of injury is always looming. Typically, injuries sustained on the job are covered by Worker’s Compensation Insurance. However, other avenues for relief may exist. The Accident Pros attorneys are experienced in handling construction accident cases and will work with you to determine if you have other legal remedies.
Types of injuries:
- Broken bones;
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs);
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Burns; and
- Severed limbs
Causes of injuries
- Falls: Construction workers are regularly required to work hundreds of feet above the ground. The mere fact that a construction worker voluntarily assumed the risk of working at great heights does not mean that he/she cannot have a claim for injuries. Owners, general contractors, and, in some cases, equipment manufacturers, are required to minimize risks as much as possible Safety measures such as protective barriers must be in place. If these guidelines are not followed, a claim may exist.
- Falling debris
- Employee negligence
- Defective equipment
- Exposure to toxic substances
