Construction occurs all around us, and is a part of daily life. For this reason, construction injuries are not uncommon. They can occur in the workplace, on sidewalks near construction sites, on freeways and highways, and in buildings under construction or in the midst of repairs. Construction accident injuries can be severe, requiring immediate and/or significant medical attention. The involvement of doctors, hospitals and ambulances in your initial treatment can be very expensive, and this is before even considering longer term treatment and rehabilitation that might be necessary. The potentially permanent affects of a construction accident can greatly diminish the quality of life of both the victim and the victims family. Construction accident injuries such as brain damage, amputation, broken bones, spinal injury, and paralysis such as paraplegia or quadriplegia can irreversibly redirect the course of the victim’s life.
Compensation for Construction Accident Injuries
Construction workers and those who have been injured at a construction or job site, may have grounds for a lawsuit that would seek out compensation for damages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and any potential loss of future earnings. Such a claim may find the owners of the construction site, the general contractors, subcontractor, or another entity negligent, and deem them liable for damages. This could result in an award, judgment, or settlement against the at fault party.
