Across the country, more than 1 in 5 worker deaths are in the construction industry. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) identifies 4 hazards responsible for more than half of construction worker deaths. These hazards termed the “fatal four hazards,” include: falls; being struck by an object; electrocutions; and getting caught in or between equipment.
When someone is injured in a construction site accident, he or she can file a personal injury lawsuit against the parties responsible for the accident. Whoever is liable may have to pay out an award to the injured individual to cover damages. The parties responsible for construction accidents depend on the type of accident and who was involved.
If you sustained injuries on a construction site, workers’ compensation should cover your injuries and lost wages; however, each situation is different. Contact Elevate Law Group, LLP today for a free consultation.
