Types of Construction Accidents
With so many dangerous tools, large pieces of machinery, and hazardous conditions, construction sites are rife with accidents.
Construction accidents are commonly caused by:
- Equipment malfunctions
- Site owner/employer negligence
- Exposure to dangerous substances
- Slip and falls
- OSHA violations
- Negligent hiring
- Defective tools and equipment
Whether your accident was caused by a defective tool or an employer’s failure to maintain a safe work environment, you have the right to seek the compensation you need in the wake of your accident.
We Have Extensive Experience with Workers’ Compensation Claims
The workers’ compensation system was created to help workers recover from injuries suffered on the job. A serious construction-related injury often leaves the victim out of work as they struggle to cope with mounting medical bills and other expenses. Workers’ compensation benefits can help with all of this.
Workers’ compensation benefits are meant to cover:
- Medical expenses
- Hospital bills
- Lost wages
- Temporary/permanent disability
In the event that your family member or loved one died in a construction accident, you may also be able to seek wrongful death benefits.
