As a safe, responsible construction worker, you understand the dangers of your work site. You take the proper precautions, wear the right safety equipment and never take unnecessary risks that violate site safety protocols.
Unfortunately, you can still end up suffering a significant injury while on the job, even though you did everything right. At chwartz Goldstone & Campisi, LLP, our personal injury lawyers will help you, either by navigating your state’s workers’ compensation system with you or pursuing a legal claim on your behalf.
Even though construction sites are, by their very nature, dangerous places to work, that doesn’t clear your supervisors from their responsibility to keep employees safe. And it doesn’t mean you lose your right to justice should you get hurt.
Causes of Construction Accidents
There are a number of ways for even safety-conscious workers to suffer serious injuries on construction sites. The Cochran Firm’s personal injury lawyers have seen these accidents, and we understand how to handle the legal consequences of them.
Common construction site accidents include:
- Scaffolding falls
- Electric shocks
- Chemical spills
- Crane accidents
- Falling materials, such as rock or brick
These accidents obviously present significant danger to on-site workers. Many of our clients suffered serious brain injuries as a result of their construction accidents.
