CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS - A Qualified Construction Accident Lawyer Can Make a Difference.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that the construction business is one of the most hazardous industries for American workers. A significant number of lives are lost every year and countless workers are injured. The “Analysis of Construction Fatalities”, authored by the U.S. Department of Labor, reveals that the most prevalent causes of construction accidents include:

  • Falls from elevations
  • Being struck by an object
  • Being caught between objects or equipment  
  • Electrical shock

Construction accidents not only affect the injured worker but can also impact those living or working in close proximity to the accident site. In certain circumstances, the construction worker may not be the only one who suffers a serious injury. A highly qualified construction accident lawyer can help accident victims understand their rights and recourses when injuries result from a construction site accident.

Construction workers may be injured on the job through no fault of their own. Some of the common causes of injuries at construction sites include: 

  • A lax work environment
  • Defective or improperly constructed scaffolding
  • Falling objects
  • Defective or faulty equipment 
  • Fires, explosions or welding mishaps 
  • Being struck by a vehicle, forklift or other heavy equipment
  • A roof collapse or toppled crane
  • Electrical shock
  • Highway accidents
  • Negligence or mistakes of others

Per OSHA, construction fatalities are equally steady across union and non-union worksites, and the age of the worker makes little difference with regard to injuries. Any worker can become a victim. A construction accident attorney with extensive experience in construction accidents can make a difference for those injured by events at a construction site. Construction accident litigation can be intricate. Contacting the right construction accident lawyer as soon as possible following a mishap is the best way to protect inherent rights and insure the availability of legal recourse.

Successful compensation for injuries from crane accidents, scaffolding accidents, and all other construction-related traumas, whether won by injured construction workers or civilians injured as a consequence of construction site activity, may include compensation for: 

  • Current and future medical expenses 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Loss of income or future earnings
  • Loss of companionship or support
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Punitive damages for defective equipment, vehicles or tools

If you have been injured, or suffered the loss of a loved one, because of a construction accident, it is important to take the following steps:

  1. Seek legal advice immediately and follow the attorney’s advice
  2. Do not sign anything without legal representation 
  3. Seek immediate medical assistance 
  4. Keep records

An injured victim is in danger of waiving all legal rights if he or she disregards the above guidelines.

By law, claims must be timely made. To better understand how to make a claim for the compensation you deserve, complete our free evaluation form below. A knowledgeable, experienced construction accident attorney will contact you to discuss the best course of action you should take to get your recovery underway.
