4 Construction Injuries That Could Result In Lawsuits

There’s a lot of construction going on this time of year. This includes companies building homes or office buildings, crews repairing or upgrading roads, or building renovations, and more.

Picture of a building construction site.

Aches and pains may be routine if you work in construction, but some injuries could be more than you bargained for. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may end up missing long stretches of work.

These construction-related injuries could lead to litigation that results in financial compensation:

Falls

Heights are dangerous no matter if you’re working on the roof of a home or if you’re helping build a brand new skyscraper. Companies take more precaution now than compared to the  Lunch atop a Skyscraper days, but accidents and mistakes still happen.

Crashes

Large machinery such as trucks, dozers, excavators, and backhoes are vital to the construction business. However, they can easily cause catastrophic injuries if they’re faulty or used with negligence.

Head Injuries

Tools are dropped, debris can go flying in unexpected directions, and support structures can fall apart. Impacts to the head can cause serious medical issues and could even lead to death.

Foot Injuries

It can be easy to get a foot caught in a piece of equipment or a hole. With all of the screws and nails used on a daily basis, some of them are bound to get lost and people end up stepping on them. While foot injuries aren’t often life-threatening, they can keep you from working and earning money.
