Construction workers are exposed to a wide variety of hazards on a daily basis. Working on ladders, roofs, scaffolding, and near heavy equipment such as cranes and bulldozers can present a dangerous work environment that too often results in catastrophic injuries from accidents.
Careless operation of equipment or otherwise negligent behavior can result in falls, accidents, electrocution, or other injuries requiring compensation for medical bills, lost income, therapy costs, and pain and suffering.
When an injury occurs on a construction site, a worker can often pursue a claim through Workers’ Compensation, but sometimes when an accident is due to the negligence of a manufacturer or other third party, there may also be grounds for a personal injury claim.
