Construction sites offer multiple opportunities for injuries. Falls from high places, improperly maintained equipment and hazardous substances are a few of the reasons people get hurt at construction sites. Construction may be new, in the process of demolition or a rehabilitation of an existing structure. These types of projects often involve workers of all kinds, from carpenters to electricians. Proper performance of construction duties requires skill and expertise to ensure the safety and well-being of workers as well as visitors to a site. Our office handles cases for injuries caused on a construction site. We are trained in the specifics of what you may and may not seek by way of damages, and from whom. We look to third parties such as subcontractors for responsibility for your injuries when appropriate, and actively pursue all available remedies on your behalf.
Recently, a worker was injured at a construction site in Quincy and was reported to be in fair condition. The accident happened when:
- The man fell one story from a school building
- The fall was the result of an electrical shock
- The injuries included burns and a head injury
This story shows how an injury can be suffered on a construction site, and how that injury can be compounded by multiple factors within the same incident. The initial injury was the fall, caused by an electrical shock. As would be expected with an electrical injury, the man suffered burns to his forearms. However, because of the worker’s being shocked caused him to fall, he also suffered a head injury. It is common to suffer more than one injury when an accident takes place at a construction site. This is due to the many different types of activities taking place at one time. Our goal is to obtain compensation for all your injuries, in an amount that fully compensates you.
