Should You Consult an Attorney After a Construction Accident?

July 26, 2019

Many workers suffer workplace injuries that lead to personal and financial hardship each year. Among them, construction workers have one of the highest rates of workplace injury in the U.S. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 10% of workplace accidents are construction-related, and each year construction workers suffer the highest incidence of workplace fatalities. While most construction workers understand some risks associated with the job, they should not have to work in fear while trying to make a living for themselves and their family.

All workplaces, including construction companies, implement OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standards for safety and regulations. These regulations are meant to ensure the health and safety of their workers.  However, due to negligence or poor work conditions, accidents still occur that lead to serious personal injury.

Types of Construction Injuries

Construction workers are subjected to many environmental hazards, including large machinery, dangerous tools, chemicals, electricity, and dangerous work environments. The most common injuries sustained by construction workers include:

  • Brain Injury
  • Broken and Fractured Bones
  • Electrocution
  • Burns
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Internal Injuries
  • Loss of Limbs

Claiming an injury to workers’ compensation comes with its own challenges. While most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, the benefits are often not enough to cover the injuries and long-term recovery. Insurance companies will often try to provide only the minimum coverage for medical bills, lost wages, and disabilities.

Many construction workers who have been injured on the job find that seeking legal help from an experienced construction accident attorney greatly increases injury compensation.
