Construction accidents

Construction sites can be dangerous, killing and injuring thousands of workers every year. Workers are often required to use powerful machinery, scaffolding, and ladders and climb to great heights. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that one in ten construction workers dies every year in the US. It is important for workers to familiarize themselves with the common causes of these accidents to prevent their occurrence.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

Falls: This is one of the most common causes of construction accidents. Workers at construction sites are at risk of falling off scaffoldings, cranes, roofs, ladders and other equipment or machinery.

Falling objects: Workers at construction sites are at risk of getting struck by falling objects, such as tools or other construction materials, that are not properly secured. These objects can cause severe brain and spinal injuries even if proper safety equipment is worn.

Machinery-related accidents: Heavy machinery such as forklifts and dumpsters can malfunction and cause serious accidents and injuries to workers.

Electrocution, fires, and explosions: Construction sites often contain exposed wirings, leaking pipes and flammable chemicals that can lead to electrocution, fires and explosions and result in serious injuries.

Trench or building collapse: Trenches being built on construction sites may collapse and injure workers inside. Buildings under construction can suddenly or unexpectedly collapse and injure or kill workers.

Due to the strenuous physical labor required in the construction industry, workers are often victims of the following injuries:

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Muscle and joint damage due to overuse
  • Heat stroke due to extremely hot temperatures
  • Hypothermia in cold climates
  • Burns and electrocution
  • Eye injuries resulting in vision impairment or blindness
  • Broken bones, knee and ankle injuries
  • Neck, shoulder, back and spinal cord injuries
  • Illnesses caused by toxic chemical exposure
  • Head and brain injuries

Car accidents can be traumatic. The steps you take after your car accident play a vital role in protecting your legal claim. If you want to submit a claim for compensation, here are five steps you should take after a car accident:

Involve the Police

Call the police even if the accident is minor. The police will make a record of the accident and after investigating the accident, the police officer will issue a police report. This will help in establishing the fact that the accident actually occurred and also help in determining who was at fault.

Get Information and Take Photographs

Get photographs of the accident scene, witness names and contact information. Also, photograph vehicle positions, body damage, skid marks and road conditions.

Get Medical Help

If you think you are injured, immediately see a doctor or visit the hospital. Even if you do not feel pain immediately after the accident, injuries may become painful in time. It is advisable to get medical help even if you had a minor injury.

A visit to the doctor or hospital will also help document your injuries and make you eligible for Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage.

Talk to a Car Accident Attorney

An experienced car accident attorney will help you avoid any legal mistakes. A good lawyer is fully aware of the statute of limitations, and will help you file the claim within the required time frame. He or she will also track your medical record so that the medical costs remain reasonable. Finally, your car accident attorney will represent your legal interests when submitting your claim for compensation from the responsible party.

Do Not Give a Recorded Statement to an Insurance Representative

Do not make a recorded statement to the insurance company without the prior knowledge of your attorney. Your car accident attorney will help prepare you for any recorded statements with the insurance company so that all the facts about the accident are fully expressed.
