Accidents on construction sites can be the result of errors in judgment, defective equipment, falling materials or machinery, chemical leaks or explosions, and electrical defects.
Some of the more common causes of construction site accidents include electrical shocks, excavation and trenching accidents such as cave-ins, “struck-by” accidents from motor vehicles and falling objects, and falls from scaffolding, ladders and floor holes. These types of accidents often result in serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment, physical therapy and time away from work.
A completely safe workplace is impossible to create, even though there are numerous laws aimed at protecting workers from accidents on the job. The federal government has established the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to regulate and monitor job environments and minimize workers’ exposure to risks. There are also workers’ compensation laws, individual to each state, which provide money to people injured on the job. These funds, however, are dispensed in fixed amounts and are not always enough to cover the expenses associated with a serious construction site accident.
What can a construction worker do, then, to meet medical expenses due to an on-the-job accident? While the law does not allow a worker injured in the normal course of work to sue the employer, there may be other parties that are at fault and liable for damages, such as professional installers, property owners, and product manufacturers.
Due to the dangerous nature of their work, construction workers’ job-related injuries can often be severe and life altering. Our firm understands that after going through such trauma your goals are to make sure your medical bills are paid and covered, that you do not suffer financially through any lost wages, and that your insurance company will pay for future treatment relating to your injury.
