“What are my rights if I have been injured in a construction accident?”

Construction sites can be inherently dangerous due to a number of factors, including but not limited to, unfinished construction, electricity and wiring, open trenches/holes, and potentially dangerous tools around the site. A construction injury lawyer may be able to help if you have suffered an injury at a construction site.

OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is a federal agency that works to promote safety in the workplace, among other goals. According to OSHA, construction accident fatalities in 2012 accounted for almost 20% of worker fatalities in private industry. OSHA divides these construction injuries into what it calls the “Fatal Four”. The “Fatal Four” account for almost 60% of construction fatalities and include:

  • Falls
  • Struck by object
  • Electrocutions
  • Caught-in/between

While workers may be relegated to workmen’s compensation, there may be other liable parties. Those passing by and/or visiting the site may be subject to the same injuries and be able to recover, not limited by worker’s comp.

Construction accident lawyers are familiar with the hazards of construction sites and what to do if you are injured in a construction accident. They can help you gather information to determine if you have a case, whether it is a broken bone or a wrongful death claim for a loved one. Construction injury lawyers can consult with you about your injury and determine how to move forward.

As with other and related personal injury claims, construction accidents are time sensitive in that failing to file appropriate claims by a certain date may waive your ability to bring a case on your behalf or on behalf of a loved one. Involving a construction injury attorney can help alleviate stress after an injury and begin you on the path to recovery.

Whether a fall at a construction site or a deadly electrocution, you may be entitled to recover for your injuries or the injuries of your loved ones. There may also be a claim for lost wages during the recovery time for an accident caused at a construction site, which precludes you from continuing to work at the site. Consult with a construction accident lawyer today to determine your options, and decide how to move forward. Ciyou & Dixon, P.C. handles these cases throughout the United States.
