The Many Dangers of Construction Work
Construction work can involve numerous tradesmen and professionals such as bricklayers, heavy equipment operators, concrete workers, engineers, carpenters, pipe fitters, electricians, roofers, painters and steelworkers. We can represent any worker injured on the job site.
The physical demands of the job, inadequate safety measures and inexperienced co-workers make construction sites extremely dangerous places. Construction sites may also present hazards such as:
- Falls from ladders or scaffolds
- Heavy equipment collapse
- Structural collapse
- Falling objects
- Contact with electric or gas lines
- Explosions and fires
- Defective power tools or machinery
- Construction vehicle accidents
- Exposure to toxins
Workers can suffer serious injuries such as burns, electric shock, fractures, amputations, back, neck and spinal cord injuries, and brain injuries as a result of these accidents. If a third party’s negligence was the reason for the accident, we may be able to file a personal injury suit that is separate from your workers’ compensation claim.
