Construction workers are subject to many on-the-job hazards. OSHA safety regulations have helped reduce accidents, but with the very nature of the industry, material and tools needed, workers are still apt to suffer injuries on the job. An on-the-job construction accident can cause the injured worker extreme financial stress from medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and the possibility of death. Some of the types of accidents and injuries that occur frequently on construction sites include:
- Construction Site Falls
- Crane Accidents
- Dangerous and Defective Machines
- Mechanical Hazards*Nail Gun Accidents
- Scaffolding Accidents
- Welding, Cutting and Brazing Accidents
Many workers who have been injured in a construction accident can file a personal injury claim above and beyond their workers’ compensation benefits. Specifically, if the party responsible for your injury was someone other than your employer or a co-worker, you can file a third party claim.
If you, a family member or friend has suffered a personal injury as a result of a construction site accident, call Mr. Waldman. The initial consultation is free. If Mr. Waldman agrees to represent you, you don’t pay unless funds are recovered on your behalf.
