You Need Legal Help After Being Injured In A Construction Zone
If you have been injured in a construction site accident, you need a personal injury attorney to assist you in dealing with the various complex issues that are likely to arise in this type of a claim.
You most likely have a valid workers’ compensation claim and can get that claim underway promptly. Our law firm can advise you on how to protect your rights as you pursue workers’ comp benefits.
You may also have a third-party liability claim. All construction sites must meet certain OSHA regulations. If this was not so when you were injured, we can help you pursue legal action against the responsible party. Contractors, subcontractors and vendors with equipment or machinery on the premises may have been negligent in some manner in the way they were performing their functions, leading to your injuries. It can be difficult to determine which party is negligent, and it’s possible that more than one party is responsible for the mishap.
At Sarkisian Personal Injury Lawyers, we will work closely with you through every step of your case, so you feel informed and supported through your recovery as you pursue compensation from all available sources. You deserve the support needed to heal; we’re committed to helping you get what you need to cover medical bills, therapy, lost wage replacement and more.
Common Causes Of Construction Accidents
Construction accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. In an instant, you could be left with a serious or debilitating injury due to the thoughtless actions of another person or company. Common hazards and scenarios on a construction site include:
- Falls from an object, after property safety precautions haven’t been followed or if mistakes are made
- Electrocutions from exposed wiring
- Falling objects, such as heavy tools that drop from scaffolding or a tall building
- Being caught in machinery, which may occur if safety regulations aren’t followed or if a machine is improperly cared for
Construction workers are exposed to risks every day. However, working too many hours, not acquiring the proper training and not following safety regulations can increase the risk. Was your supervision or training inadequate?
