Types of Construction Accidents
There are virtually unlimited reasons why a construction accident can occur, either by accident or through the negligence of another party, including:
- Defective tools and other equipment
- Electric shock
- Working in poor weather
These accidents can result in minor physical injuries or death. Due to the dangerous nature of construction work, it is important that you and your employers take proper safety precautions to help you avoid:
- Broken bones
- Heavy bruising
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Electric and chemical injury
- Burn injury
- Hearing or vision loss
- Loss of limbs
Injuries of the spinal cord and brain can have lifelong effects and require costly ongoing medical care.
What To Do after an Accident
Immediately following an accident, you should report the incident to your employer and seek the appropriate medical attention. Delaying action could affect your case, and we encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible. Our team of lawyers can provide guidance on how to obtain and submit workers’ compensation claims. If we believe that a third party (such as an equipment manufacturer or motorist) may be responsible for your injury, we can also represent you in a personal injury lawsuit. A personal injury suit may also be recommended if an intentional act on the part of a co-worker is suspected to have contributed to your injury.

Why Hire a Lawyer?

There is no guarantee that your claim will be honored, or that it will provide the extent of compensation you truly need. Our team has the resources to protect your best interests throughout the aftermath of a work accident.
When establishing liability, we assess the possibility of:
