Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?
As one of the most dangerous industries, the construction industry has too many hazards to list. However, a few of the most common dangers include:
- Falls from ladders, roofs and elevated heights
- Falling objects
- Tool or equipment malfunctions
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Lack of safety equipment or procedures
- Structural collapse
- Exposure to chemicals or toxins
- Electrical accidents
Workers who are injured in these types of accidents can suffer back injuries, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, leg and knee injuries, arm and shoulder injuries, burns, amputations and brain injuries. Depending on the severity of the injury, temporary or permanent disability may be the result.
We will work to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. If a negligent third party was responsible for your injury, you may be entitled to additional compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Talk to us about your case to learn whether we can file a separate personal injury suit.
