The construction industry is, statistically speaking, one of the most dangerous occupational fields in which an individual can be employed, with more recorded fatalities each year than almost any other industry. The nature of construction work is inherently dangerous, and some injuries will occur no matter how safe an employer or manager is. Unfortunately, however, third-party actors, including equipment manufacturers and contractors, play a significant part in making the construction industry so dangerous for workers.
For workers who suffer an injury on the job, the consequences are often extremely serious, as it may leave a worker and his/her family unable to cope with the costs of the injury and keep them from making ends meet. However, a construction worker who suffers an injury as a result of carelessness on the part of a third party may be able to pursue compensation for the damages he or she has suffered.
Our Practice Areas
It can be difficult for construction workers to recover from a workplace accident caused by a third party’s carelessness; however, legal support may be available in instances where a construction worker or his/her family suffers due to any of the following:
- Equipment Malfunction
- Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents
- Exposure to Toxic Substances
- Head and Brain Injuries
- Wrongful Death
These types of injuries and accidents can leave construction workers unable to continue working and supporting their families, making it even more difficult to cope with the repercussions of an accident.
