Construction site injuries can be caused by any number of factors. Most fatalities are caused by falls, equipment accidents, falling objects, or electrocution. Even when not fatal, these accidents almost always lead to serious injury, including:
• Spinal cord injury
• Broken bones
• Serious cuts
• Brain injuries
These injuries may be caused by things like negligence on the part of another contractor, improperly maintained scaffolding or the reckless behavior of another worker. Because of this, when you are injured on a construction site, it can be difficult to determine who is to blame.
Contractors, landowners, site managers, and even third-party companies can be held responsible for your injuries. All of these people will have attorneys and insurance adjusters on their side trying to minimize their monetary damages.
