Workers Compensation Construction Accident Injury Claims
A construction site accident can be extremely serious, and may cause permanent disability, loss of a limb, blindness, head injury, back and neck injuries, fractured or broken bones, or even death. Often the medical bills will be large, and there may be a long period of disability and lost wages. Workers’ compensation may pay for some of the medical bills and lost earnings. Construction workers are often subject to falls from heights, ladder and scaffolding accidents, power tool and machinery injuries, burns from fires or chemicals, explosions, electrical shock, truck and heavy equipment accidents or trench collapses.
