Causes of Construction Accidents

Construction is one of the most hazardous occupations in the country and, consequently, thousands of construction workers' suffer personal injury every year. Construction companies are often very reluctant to provide full compensation for such injuries, especially if it means their insurance rates will rise. However, it is within every employee's rights to be compensated for an injury that they received on the job.

Accidents that occur on construction sites can cause serious injury. Because of the heavy machinery, electrical wiring, and heavy objects being transported over the workers' heads, catastrophic injuries are very possible. If a beam should fall and strike a worker in the head, it could result in traumatic brain injury. An employee might slip and fall and suffer a spinal cord injury, such as a broken neck, that causes temporary or permanent paralysis.

Perhaps some exposed wiring electrocutes a worker, resulting in severe burns. All of these injuries can affect the employee's ability to function, work, and enjoy life. Such suffering should be compensated by the company or person who was responsible for causing the worker's accident.

Crossover Cases in Construction Accidents

Many construction accidents are not only the fault of the construction company, but a third party, as well. In these situations, the injured worker may be uncertain whether he or she should pursue a workers' compensation claim or a personal injury claim. Sometimes the best choice is both!
