COMMON CONSTRUCTION RELATED INJURIES
When construction workers, foremen, and safety officials cut corners or fail to adhere to strict safety guidelines, workers can suffer a vast array of different serious injuries. Falls from improperly secured scaffolding, machinery accidents, and crane accidents can leave workers with permanent disfigurements, stripping them of their ability to work and function normally.
Some of the most common injuries suffered include:
- Loss of limbs
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord damage
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Crushing injuries
If it can be determined that your accident was a result of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages by filing a personal injury claim. Damages can include compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning potential, and disability benefits. If a loved one should unfortunately have lost their life as a result of injuries sustained in a construction accident, additional compensation can be sought by filing a wrongful death claim. To get a more accurate representation of your eligible damages and legal options, it is imperative that you consult with our firm as soon as possible to determine the most appropriate course of action.
