A serious accident on a construction site can leave you needing medical care and unable to return to work. It can make it difficult to pay your bills, and you may need weeks or even months to fully recover after the accident. We can help.
There are countless ways that an accident can occur on the job site. However, some of the more common causes of construction accidents include:
- Unsafe or defective scaffolding and ladders
- Forklift rollovers
- Crane defects and dropped loads
- Construction debris
- Lack of safety guards, signs and equipment
- Heavy machinery
Any one of these causes can result in serious injuries, including spinal trauma, traumatic brain injuries and the loss of a limb.
