Accidents and Injuries on Construction Sites
Everyone working on a construction site is at risk for accidents and injuries. We represent all types of injured workers, including steelworkers, laborers, electrical workers, equipment operators, masons and roofers.
Some of the most common types of construction accidents are:
- Scaffolding and lift collapses
- Falls from ladders
- Contact with power lines
- Building collapse
- Heavy equipment or power tool failure
- Trenching accidents
- Construction vehicle accidents
These accidents often cause very serious injuries and death. Many of the injuries are permanent and disabling, such as crushed bones, amputations, burns, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, loss of vision or hearing, paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia. In these cases, the injured worker will need compensation for medical bills, long-term care, lost income, pain and suffering, and monthly expenses.
