CONSTRUCTION SITE ACCIDENTS OVERVIEW

Construction workers and bystanders can find themselves confronted by dangerous, unsafe work conditions sometimes on a daily basis.  Serious injury and death occurs from construction site accidents with alarming frequency.  Worker’s compensation can aid employees who have an on the job injury, but it is usually not sufficient to fully compensate injured workers for all damages sustained.

The most common construction and workplace accidents are:

  • Falls due to improperly assembled scaffolding, unsafe ladders, holes in flooring, etc.
  • Equipment accidents and defective machinery such as power tools, improperly guarded machines, crane accidents, forklifts, etc.
  • Electrocution
  • Exposure to toxic fumes
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Highway work zone accidents

Construction and workplace accidents can result in wrongful death or serious injuries such as catastrophic burns, broken bones, amputation, traumatic brain injury, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries.

DO NOT RELY ON INSURANCE COMPANIES

Do not accept any claim before you speak with an attorney.  Many large insurance companies have adopted settlement policies that encourage their adjusters to offer quick payments to persons involved in an accident.  Insurance adjusters will contact you or your family shortly after an accident to try to gain your confidence.  In doing so, insurance adjusters often try to present themselves as the friend of the injured person or the family of the person who was killed in an accident.  The goal of such contact is to settle the case on terms as favorable as possible for the insurance company.
