Injuries and Death From Construction Site Accidents

Construction accidents can often be serious and lead to long term suffering or disability. Victims of construction accidents often lose their limbs, sight and hearing due to the dangerous equipment and nature of construction sites. Common construction injuries include burns, lacerations and bone fractures from accidents involving heavy machinery and building materials. Major head injuries, paralysis, amputations and wrongful death cases are the most extreme in construction accidents and result in large case settlements.

When an injury is permanent in nature the victim deserves to receive a hefty compensation. An experienced attorney in construction accident cases is able to fight for the rights of the victims and deal with the dodgy insurance companies to win a good settlement to cover the medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

In construction accidents 2012, there were 721 fatalities. In fatal construction accidents, the defendants of the deceased need to contact an attorney without delay.

Construction accident statistics reveal that most construction worker deaths on work sites are caused by falls, electric shock, struck by object, and caught-in/between. These accidents are often caused by the negligence of general contractors and construction managers but sometimes the parts supplier and manufacturer, and also the architect can be held liable. The contractors and managers are responsible to provide safety for workers as required by Federal and State laws and it is the job of the construction accident lawyers to investigate the incident and bring the responsible party to justice.
