Working on a construction site is never easy. Even if you are being extremely careful, there is always the chance you could suffer a serious injury.
Just because you are working in a dangerous industry is not an excuse to suffer an injury due to the negligence of an employer or other party.
A construction accident can include anything from a slip and fall to a scaffolding collapse. That is just the start, too.
Some of the most common construction site injuries include:
— Broken bones
— Head and neck injuries
— Back injuries
— Shoulder injuries
— Injuries due to a fall from height
— Crush injuries
— Toxic exposure
— Joint injuries
— Repetitive stress injuries
When a person is injured on a construction site, it’s imperative that he or she seeks immediate medical attention. The employer should also be made aware of exactly what happened.
Moving on, remember this: The insurance company may attempt to take advantage of you, as they don’t want you to collect benefits associated with the injury. They will use every trick imaginable to keep you from getting the money you deserve.
