Construction Sites Are Dangerous Places to Work

As far as jobs go, construction work is among the most dangerous of occupations. However, even a construction site can become more hazardous than it should be when proper safety precautions aren’t taken by construction companies, supervisors, and equipment suppliers.

Construction accidents occur for many avoidable reasons, including, but not limited to:

Dangerous, defective, and/or improperly assembled scaffolding

Use of unsafe, old, or improperly maintained ladders

Failure to use proper safety measures for trenching and excavation projects

Failure to protect highway construction workers from traffic and roadside hazards

Use of defective or improperly maintained power tools

Unsafe use of cranes and forklifts

Failure to prevent electrical accidents — including electrical shock, electrocutions, and power line contact

Failure to protect workers from falling objects

You may know that workers’ compensation claims allow you to pursue benefits for injuries you suffer on the job, but when significant negligence exists, there may be underlying cause that allows you to file a personal injury claim. In these situations, it may be possible to recover much more compensation, which is most often needed in situations involving negligence.

Construction Accidents Require Thorough Investigation

Should you suffer a construction accident resulting in long-term problems, it becomes necessary to speak with an attorney who knows how to handle these cases. Our team has extensive knowledge regarding investigations and learning how certain lapses in safety can lead to harm, as well as how to show that negligence played a role in this situation.

It’s our goal to provide full thoroughness and accountability throughout this entire process. It’s our utmost priority to determine the liable parties and determine what options work best for you. We also have knowledge of catastrophic injuries that can stem from construction accidents—including traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and spinal cord injuries (SCI)—and we recognize the need in these situations to pursue maximum compensation. We stand ready to help you.
