Were You Injured While On A Construction Site?

Construction sites are some of the most dangerous types of workplaces. From the types of equipment used to the fact that different teams of workers from different employers may not clearly communicate about hazards, there are numerous issues that can cause an accident.

Some of the common types of accidents on a construction site include:

  • Falls from heights (ladders, scaffolding, roofs, mezzanines)
  • Heavy equipment accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Slip and falls
  • Injuries caused by explosions
  • Power tool accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Injuries caused by falling debris

When accidents do happen, injured workers deserve to be compensated. This can be especially important if they are unable to return to work. Workers can pursue financial help through:

  • Workers' compensation — Most workplace accidents are covered by the workers' compensation system. When a worker is injured, he or she can receive medical care and a percentage of his or her wages if unable to work. Benefits can usually begin being disbursed in a relatively short-time frame.
  • Third-party claims — When on-the-job injuries are caused by a party that is not the employer or injured employee, that third party can be held accountable through litigation.
