Construction workers are subject to a high level of risk as they are often involved in potentially dangerous tasks such as lifting heavy objects, operating large machinery, and performing job duties at elevated heights. When someone causes a preventable construction accident through negligence, he or she may be liable for the victim’s injuries.
There are innumerable ways in which a person can suffer an injury as the result of the negligence of another party at a construction site. Scaffolding accidents are the most common, accounting for nearly two-thirds of all construction accidents. Other common causes include falls, electrocution, and improperly braced trenches.
If you have suffered an injury as the result of a construction accident, you may be eligible to receive economic recovery for your losses. Our attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and determine a course of action. Contact us for a consultation with a knowledgeable injury attorney.
