Were You Injured in a Construction Accident?

Personal injury attorney William McBride believes in justice for all.

What are Common Construction Accident Injuries?

Construction sites are, by nature, busy environments filled with workers, machinery and vehicles. With a great deal of activity taking place, construction sites require strict safety standards and vigilant managers to prevent serious accidents that could result in loss of limb, paralysis, permanent disability and wrongful death on construction sites.

One of the most common types of construction accidents are falls, which can be either on-site falls or scaffolding falls. Body trauma, such as pulls and strains, are also common. Other construction injuries include:

  • Equipment runaways and run-overs
  • Crane accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Electrocution
  • Crush accidents

If you or your loved one has experienced any of these injuries at a construction site due to negligence, contact a construction accident attorney at our law firm for help today.

Can I File a Lawsuit After a Construction Accident?

Each of these types of construction accidents can have devastating consequences, but the most tragic fact is that the majority of construction accidents are preventable by implementing the proper safety measures.

Unfortunately, construction projects with accelerated timetables and unrealistic deadlines create working environments where employees are exposed to substandard safety protocols, including dangerous materials or environments. Managers may also encourage workers to bypass safety routines to save time and money.

With the help of an experienced construction accident lawyer, workers hurt on the job may able to recover damages for the following:

  • Hospital treatments
  • Job rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and job benefits
  • Lost economic contribution to your family
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability

Legal action taken against a third party for failing to maintain safe work conditions , such as the manufacturer of defective equipment or subcontractor not connected to the employer, cannot undo the pain that a construction worker suffers, but the compensation a work injury lawsuit can provide can at least help the injured person recover and stay financially afloat.
