Common Construction Site Injuries
It is no secret that construction workers have a dangerous job — they work with heavy machines, dangerous equipment and work at high altitudes daily. Despite safety measures and proper training, however, serious injuries can still occur.
Below are some common construction site injuries with which Carson & Coil is ready to help you obtain maximum benefits:
- Head trauma
- Serious falls
- Broken bones and fractures
- Burns or scarring
- Serious cuts or lacerations
- Neck, back or spinal cord damage
- Loss of limbs, including amputations and lost fingers
- Repetitive stress complications
- Loss of hearing
- Falling debris
Construction workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of fault. Unfortunately, despite this no-fault system, employers and their insurance carriers often try to minimize their liability or deny coverage completely. Carson & Coil has significant experience working with difficult insurance companies and will fight hard to ensure you receive the maximum compensation that you are entitled.
Third-Party Liability Claims
In addition to workers’ compensation benefits, certain employees might be able to file a separate third-party personal injury claim. Such claims are typically brought against manufacturers of defective equipment, negligent supervisors, property owners and any other party whose negligence caused a serious injury.
