Construction Site Accident Injuries
Many different types of injuries can occur on a construction site. Below are some of the types of construction accident and injury cases that we confidently handle:
- Falling objects
- Falls from heights / scaffolding
- Slip / trip and falls
- Equipment injuries
- Amputation or dismemberment
- Back injury
- Closed head injury
- Brain or spinal cord injury
- Neck injury
- Traumatic brain injury
Falling from scaffolding, falling from a ladder, or falling off another type of structure during construction are accidents that are all too common. Falls account for a large number of construction accidents. When the fall involves the element of elevation, you may sustain life-threatening injuries that may entitle you to compensation for the losses you suffer.
Workers’ Compensation and Third Party Claims
In most construction accident situations, workers’ compensation is also a factor. If you were injured on the job, it is important to know that laws may prevent you from seeking damages against your direct employer. However, you may be able to pursue compensation if a party other than your employer was at fault for the accident. Our law firm handles these types of claims — third party personal injury claims — along with assisting clients with workers’ compensation issues.
