Common Construction Accidents

Construction sites are dangerous places. According to the Center for Disease Control, the industry with the most on the job injuries is construction. This is due to the many different risks that construction workers face while working. Not only is the work very physical, but workers are often required to use powerful machinery, work on roadsides, or complete tasks at great heights.

The top causes of injuries on construction sites include:

  • Collapsed scaffolding
  • Electrocution
  • Falling from heights
  • Failure to use proper protective gear
  • Trench collapse
  • Defective tools or equipment
  • Errors made by other workers
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Accidents caused by machinery or tools
  • Slips and falls
  • Fire hazards and explosions

Options for Injured Construction Workers

If you have suffered harm in a construction site accident, you may be entitled to file for a workers’ compensation claim for medical costs and benefits. The first step in pursuing this type of claim is demonstrating eligibility. To qualify, your injuries must have occurred during the course and scope of your employment. In other words, you got hurt because you were fulfilling your job duties.

Sadly, these claims are sometimes contested by the employer’s workers’ compensation insurer. They may argue that your injuries were not job-related and that you, therefore, do not qualify for medical coverage and treatment. It is important to have thorough records of the cause and extent of your injuries and the costs of your medical bills. You can also benefit from having an experienced personal injury lawyer prepare a strong workers’ comp claim on your behalf. Your attorney can also appeal any denied benefits and coverage.

In some cases, there may be an alternative avenue to pursue compensation. If a construction accident was caused by a third-party, rather than your employer, you may file a lawsuit against that party.
