Construction worksites are full of dangers and hazards. Undoubtedly, they are a dangerous place to work. As a result, construction injuries are a common occurrence. Since construction workers are required to use heavy machinery and tools and work around debris, roadways, and high places, they face a significant risk of serious injury on a daily basis. The inherent nature of construction has resulted in numerous severe injuries and even death.
You have options if you are a construction worker who has sustained an injury while at work. You have the right to seek compensation for your damages.
Common construction injuries include:
- Broken Bones
- Dismemberment or Loss of Limb
- Eye Injury
- Head Injury
- Brain Injury
- Back/Spine Injury
- Knee Injury
- Neck Injury
- Illness Due to Toxic Chemical Exposure
The risks on a construction site are vast, and injuries can be sustained in a number of different ways. Some examples of causes include falling from heights, instability of landings or scaffolds, the collapse of heavy materials and machinery, losing grip while climbing a ladder, traffic accidents, equipment failure, and coworker error.
If a construction worker does not take care to wear protective gear, any injury sustained can be magnified by the absence of protection. It is vital to ensure you wear the necessary protective gear while working or visiting a construction site.
The law provides that if you are injured on a construction site, you can collect damages for medical bills, loss of wages or income, pain and suffering, and other expenses that are direly affected by your injury. Understanding and knowing your rights is essential in case of an injury. Getting injured on the job is a distressing experience.
If you have suffered a construction injury, it’s important to talk to an attorney about your options and file a claim for damages and advised to seek an attorney who represents clients in Sayville, NY, and Suffolk County, New York
