Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Construction Accidents
Construction accidents can be serious and result in catastrophic injuries and death. Construction sites often pose dangers that can place workers (and anyone else present at the construction site) at risk. Common questions that many individuals have about construction accidents include, but are not limited to, the following:
Can Injured Construction Workers Obtain Compensation?
Many construction workers may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits in most states, which is usually based on a no-fault system. As such, regardless of fault, an injured worker may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and a portion of lost income. If a third party other than the employer is liable for the incident, in many jurisdictions, a plaintiff can pursue a claim against those responsible while also pursuing workers compensation benefits.
What Are Common Injuries Associated with Construction Accidents?
Examples of common construction accident injuries include, among others, the following: broken bones, head injuries, deep wounds, neck and back injuries, paralysis, amputation, and death. Because construction sites often have heavy and dangerous machinery (as well as substantial heights), the extent of injuries can be catastrophic and fatal.
Are Construction Sites Inspected Following an Accident?
Depending on the unique facts of a construction accident and the resulting injuries, government regulators may wish to inspect the site to determine if any unsafe work conditions may have contributed to an accident.
