Construction Accident Attorney
The Dangers of Construction Sites
Some of the most serious workplace accidents in America occur at construction
sites due to the frequency of incidents such as dangerous and deadly equipment
failures, falls, exposure to dangerous chemicals, electrocution, fires
and others. In many cases, the responsibility for construction accidents
can be assigned to the negligence of either:
- The construction company, or
- A third party such as equipment manufacturer
The victim may be eligible to receive compensation above and beyond that
which workers compensation benefits are structured to provide. In any
case, victims of construction accidents should immediately seek representation
from a talented and proven legal team to protect their rights and help
them pursue fair compensation.
Severity of Workplace Injuries
It is no secret that construction workers share some of the highest risk
of injury among all professions in America, and San Francisco is no different.
In many cases, injured construction workers miss work due to such injuries
as broken bones, head or
brain injuries, lost appendages and limbs, or tragic fatal injuries. In the best-case
scenario, victims of construction accidents may receive workers compensation
benefits to help cover medical costs associated with recovery as well
as some payment for those who are unable to work. Unfortunately, there
are a multitude of expenses that may not be covered by filing a
workers compensation claim, but victims do have other options to seek appropriate settlements.
Personal injury law exists to provide victims of incidents like construction accidents
with an alternative means of seeking that compensation for damages not
covered by existing benefits.
