Why An Attorney Is Necessary For Construction Accident Cases

For most work injuries, workers’ compensation is going to cover the medical costs and some lost income. This can limit your overall compensation. However, due to the nature of construction work, third parties are often involved. In this case, you could be eligible to file a personal injury claim against a negligent party.

  • Your attorney will investigate all aspects of your injury. This includes gathering surveillance footage and speaking to witnesses.
  • An attorney will obtain and review the safety records of the construction company and any third-party contractors.
  • Your attorney will prove negligence and calculate your total economic and non-economic damages.

How Common Are Construction Injuries?

When we look at data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we see that the construction industry is more dangerous than most. OSHA has a list called the “Fatal Four,” which highlight the common causes of fatalities in the construction industry:

  • Falls
  • Getting struck by an object
  • Electrocutions
  • Getting caught in between objects

Most construction incidents do not cause fatalities. However, thousands of people are injured each year and left dealing with the consequences. Common construction injuries include:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Broken or Dislocated Bones
  • Amputations
  • Stress-related Injuries
  • Hearing and Vision Loss
  • Respiratory Problems

What Compensation is Available After a West Virginia Construction Site Accident?

  • Coverage of your current and future medical expenses
  • Recovery of lost wages if you are unable to work
  • Future wages if your earning capacity has been decreased
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
  • Possible punitive damages against grossly negligent 3rd party
