Judge Striking Gavel In Front Of Yellow Safety Helmet On The Wooden Table

No matter how strict regulations are enforced at construction sites, such places are highly prone to accidents. Workplace accidents can be caused due to defective machinery or human error or due to improper precaution and safety measures by various stakeholders and builders taking a toll on the health and safety of workers.

Construction accident injuries can be fatal at times and can cause serious injuries or deaths resulting in health, life and mental trauma to the worker’s family. While some families have to wait for years to get some portion of their claims, most families do not get the desired medical support, claim amount, and compensation from companies.

The reason for this lies in the fact that most workers’ families are not aware of their rights and do not know what actions they must take to get the desired compensation. In all such cases consulting with a construction site accident lawyer can help you get a fast settlement in the form of compensation or insurance.

Types of Construction Site Accident Injuries to Hire a Lawyer

 1. Falls

A fall can happen due to any reason. It can happen due to improper safety measures or default machinery like cranes etc. Falling from a height to a hole, trench or construction material can cause serious damage to worker’s limbs and the ability to perform basic functions.

2. Electric Shocks

Most construction sites have heavy power tools, insecure electric connections, and generators powered with high voltage. An accident caused by electricity should be treated as the responsibility of the contractor if he has not provided proper directions, equipment including gloves, and a testing kit.

3. Scaffolding Collapse

Weak or collapsed scaffoldings can result in severe fractures or even death. Orlando and other states have regulations and safety measures for the use of scaffolding at construction sites.

4. Burns

Burns can be caused due to electricity or chemicals and since construction sites largely have electricity requirements, and in some cases, chemical storage, chances of burns are high. In case of burns, it’s the sole responsibility of a Construction Company to help with insurance or claims.
A construction injury attorney can help victims and their families in claims for workplace injuries. Some of the benefits of consulting with a workplace injury attorney include:

How Can a Construction Injury Lawyer Help You?

  • Most workers compensation lawyers are well versed in federal and state laws and know various situations where workplace injury compensation amount can be recovered from the company itself.
  • A construction accident lawyer will look into the accident details, analyzing the cause of the accident and resultant injuries. He directs his attention to various stakeholders in a construction site, including lead contractors, subcontractors, property owners, vendors, rental companies, tool manufacturers and various other parties.
  • He will investigate at the construction site, look into the medical documents and witness statements to know the actual liabilities and reimbursements to be paid by various parties.
  • Accidents can happen due to default machinery or other technical faults making the construction lawyer’s role crucial. A Construction accident injury attorney will know how to deal with the complexities of third party claims and come up with ideas to make your lawsuit much stronger.
  • Most of the time, workers are not being insured from the construction company making workers vulnerable to injuries and hence do not get insurance amounts. A construction lawyer will know those technical points and make the worker’s case much stronger.
  • After such accidents, we have seen workers do not get salaries or wages. However, it should be the responsibility to the construction company to give due compensation or monetary help to workers injured at their site. A construction lawyer will know, all such points making your claim settlement easier.
