Even when all guidelines are followed, construction sites are still one of the most accident prone, dangerous locations. This is especially concerning for construction workers who have to be present to work each day. Many construction sites don’t follow all guidelines, making accident and injury all the more likely. The injuries which are sustained are usually severe: individuals falling from roofs or equipment malfunctioning, causing crush injuries, head injuries, or even amputation.
While workers’ compensation should be available to the worker at most construction accidents, it is rarely enough to cover all the costs of serious injuries, especially given that the damages that are covered are less than the amount you can recover under any other accident case. That’s where our personal injury attorneys can help you with a potential negligence claim in addition to your work comp case.
