Construction Injury

iStock_000001303860SmallConstruction is one of the most dangerous industries in the country. A small mistake can have devastating consequences. Victims of construction injures are often left with broken bones, fractures, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, spinal cord injuries, quadriplegia, paralysis, and paraplegia. The financial consequences of these injuries can be devastating on you and your loved ones. Construction injuries can result from any of the following conditions including, but not limited to, elevated falls, trenching and excavation accidents, fire and explosions, electrocution, accidents on scaffolding, chemical and mechanical hazards, toxic substance exposure, defective machinery, lack of safety equipment, and crane accidents. Construction injuries can often be prevented if owners took the necessary precautions by hiring licensed individuals who complied with all statutorily required safety guidelines such as local building codes and Federal OSHA regulations.
