Common Construction-Related Injuries
Because construction workers spend most of their day operating heavy machinery, a small mistake can be costly. While you may practice extreme caution, there is no guarantee that others will pay the same attention. Many injuries are the result of this type of negligence.
The following types of injuries pose the highest risk for construction workers:
- Fall and scaffolding injuries
- Explosions and fires
- Struck by falling objects
- Electric shock
- Transportation injuries
- Defective machinery
- Getting caught between objects
When you or a loved one is injured in this way, it is important that you take immediate action to seek the aid of a legal professional. We can help identify the responsible party and pursue a favorable settlement that extends beyond workers' compensation. Depending on your situation, you may even be able to recover damages from multiple parties to benefit you.
Who is responsible for my injury?
If you decide to file a personal injury claim for your construction accident, you will have to determine who is responsible for your injury. Liable parties can range from people on-site to the companies from which you have purchased equipment. An effective case will supply evidence linking your accident to any and all parties whose negligence led to your suffering.
After a construction accident, lawsuits are often filed against:
- Negligent coworker
- Subcontractors and contractors
- Equipment manufacturers
A successful case can provide the funds you need to cover medical bills, therapy, and other costs associated with a serious construction accident. If you are the family member of an accident victim, such damages may also provide the compensation needed for pain and suffering and the loss of income experienced as a result of a work-related injury. With an extensive history in cases from catastrophic injuries to wrongful death, we can analyze the facts of your case to determine any and all parties who may be considered responsible.
