The U.S. construction industry is ranked fourth in work-related injuries, following the general labor, trucking, and nursing industries. With workers and heavy machinery moving about, many at different heights, and all focused on different tasks, it isn’t surprising that construction sites are the source of so many accidents and injuries.

Some of the most common types of construction accidents include:

  • Falls, including roofing, elevator shafts, scaffolding, holes and heavy falling objects
  • Slips & Trips
  • Crane accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Workers being trapped or run over by moving equipment, such as forklifts or bulldozers
  • Electrocutions
  • Trench & ditch collapses
  • Welding accidents

In addition to listening carefully to your individual circumstances, we make sure that you understand your options at each step of the workers’ compensation insurance claim process, including:

  • Lost Wages & Loss of Future Earning Capacity
  • Temporary & Permanent Disability Benefits
  • Coverage of Related Current & Future Medical Expenses: Hospital Bills, Prescriptions, Out-of-Pocket Expenses, Surgery, Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation, & Future Medical Care
  • Long-Term Medical Care
  • Medicare & Medicaid Benefits
  • Vocational Rehabilitation: Job Training, Career Counseling, & Placement Services

When construction workers suffer injuries on the jobsite, they often have two cases: one for benefits under the Workers Compensation Act and another one against at-fault general and sub-contractors.
