Residential, commercial, and industrial construction sites can be extremely hazardous for laborers and tradespeople. In fact, OSHA attributed 17.5% of all private industry fatalities with the construction field in 2011. Injuries are not uncommon at construction sites, and can vary greatly from minor injuries to fatalities. Construction fatalities are often the result of falls, electrocution, getting struck by an object, and getting crushed between objects.
When construction site injuries do occur, workers and their families not only suffer from the injury itself, but the immediate financial burden of being unable to work. If you have been injured in a construction accident, either due to negligence of other workers or a simple oversight, you may have a worker’s compensation case against your employer. However, there may also be other responsible parties against which a personal injury claim can be made, and which is not subject to the limitations of a worker’s compensation case.
