What are some common construction accidents?
Construction site accidents can result in severe injuries or even death. Some of the most common causes of these injuries include:
– Excavation: An area that was previously dug out collapses, injuring workers that are underneath or walking on top of the site. These sites can collapse quickly without giving any warning.
– Falling Materials: When walking around a job site, materials can fall from overhead scaffolding and roofs. If these materials fall from a great height, they can cause complex injuries.
– Equipment Failure: Power tools and equipment need to be regularly maintained, or they might malfunction. Forklifts and other heavy equipment can be extremely dangerous when they slip out of gear.
– Scaffolding Failure: You trust these temporary structures to hold your weight while you work. If the scaffolding falls apart, they can injure anyone that is on or near them.
My company is being helpful, do I still need a lawyer?
Absolutely. Some victims think that their company cares about their injuries, but most businesses are only looking at the bottom line. When you are injured, you need to have someone fighting in your corner.
