Common Construction Site Injuries
It is no secret construction workers have a dangerous job. You work with heavy machines, dangerous equipment and int high altitudes daily. Despite safety measures and proper training, serious injuries can unfortunately still occur. The top causes of construction-related deaths are typically falls, getting struck by an object, electrocution and getting caught between objects.
Below are some common construction site injuries with which Carson & Coil is ready to help you obtain the compensation that you deserve:
- 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
You 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. Our personal injury law firm has significant experience working with difficult insurance companies and will fight hard to ensure you receive the maximum compensation that you are entitled.
If you, or anyone that you know of, has suffered an injury on the construction site, our personal injury lawyers are here to fight on your behalf.
Third-Party Liability Claims
In addition to workers’ compensation benefits, certain employees might be able to file a separate third-party personal injury claim. This kind of claim refers to a bodily injury caused to an individual because of a reckless or negligent third party’s actions or omissions.
Such claims are typically brought against manufacturers of defective equipment, negligent supervisors, property owners and any other party whose negligence caused a serious injury. Third-party liability can arise when an individual or organization that is separate from the employer causes the workplace accident.
In a third-party liability claim, it is necessary to prove the third party’s negligence, fault, wrongful acts or omissions. This is where Carson & Coil’s personal injury attorneys can help you get the compensation or settlement that you deserve. Most people don’t have professional experience in proving a third party’s negligence, but our personal injury lawyers are equipped to make sure that are rightfully compensated if a third party was at fault for your injury.
