Causes of Construction Accident Injury Claims
The construction industry can be dangerous. Because of the large size of equipment, and elevated heights involved in work, injuries can be especially harmful.
Common causes of construction accident claims are:
- Poor fall protection; slick surfaces and lack of safety measures
- Struck between incidents
- Getting run over by a piece of equipment
- Struck by heavy equipment
- Crane accidents
- Malfunctioning equipment and communication errors
- Lack of personal protection equipment
- Missing guardrails
- Repetitive motion and repeated tasks
- Failing to properly maintain equipment and safety structures
- Inadequate training, too few rest breaks, outdated equipment
Even with the best equipment and training, accidents can still occur. The workers’ compensation system exists to give victims a path to compensation when they’re hurt at work. Proving the cause of the accident is not required – only that it occurred in the scope of employment.
Do I have a construction accident case?
If you were hurt while working in construction, there’s a good chance that you have an accident claim. The workers’ compensation system doesn’t require you to prove who is at fault for the incident. There are some exceptions, like intoxication and intentional misconduct. However, most people in a construction accident at work have a case for compensation.
It’s possible to have both a workers’ compensation case and a traditional third party injury claim. Our legal team can help you explore this possibility. If you have both types of claims, it’s important to investigate how they might impact each other and the best way to proceed.
How do I get construction accident compensation?
Your construction accident case starts with reporting your injury to your employer. You should make the report as soon as possible. Then, contact our lawyers to review what benefits you should receive for your claim. If you don’t receive the right benefits, we can help you challenge the decision and pursue your case.
What benefits can I receive for a construction accident injury?
Workers’ compensation benefits available for a construction accident injury are:
- Medical care: The injured person may choose from a list of providers chosen by the employer
- Replacement income: You may receive a portion of your weekly income as replacement wages if you are unable to work
- Permanent disability: If your injuries do not fully heal, you may receive a cash payment for your disability
Each case depends on the individual situation – the injuries incurred, the disability remaining after treatment and the person’s income before the injury. Our lawyers investigate to determine the level of benefits that you deserve.
