The Dangers Of Construction Work
Construction accidents can result in injuries to the head, neck, back, shoulders, knees, eyes and other parts of the body. Common causes of construction accidents include:
- Scaffold collapses
- Falls from heights/fall protection
- Aerial ladders
- Trench collapses/cave-ins
- Getting hit by falling objects
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Electrical shocks/electrocution
- Chemical exposure
Our attorneys are here to thoroughly investigate the cause of your accident and to identify liable parties. If your accident was the result of negligence by a third party (not your employer or a fellow employee), you may be entitled to more compensation than provided by your workers’ compensation benefits.
