Construction accidents often involve serious injury, such as neck and back injury, burn injuries, or work machine injuries. In some cases, a power tool defect may be the root cause of an injury, or negligent behavior on the part of another contractor, which may entitle you to third-party claims above and beyond workers’ compensation. Depending on the nature of your injury, you may not be able to work for a long time, if ever again. We help clients sort out the details to get them maximum compensation from any and all sources.
Typical construction accidents in Georgia include:
- Traumatic brain injuries caused by falling debris or tools
- Spinal cord injuries or broken bones caused by falls from scaffolding or ladders
- Heavy equipment such as forklifts causing crush or rending injuries
- Chemical or electrical burn injuries
- Sight or hearing loss
Construction work typically makes the top 10 list of the most dangerous jobs. That’s because workers typically use heavy equipment or do their jobs from extreme heights. The most common accidents involve falls from high above the ground (such as an injury to a roofer or someone working on scaffolding); being hit by an object or a tool; and electrocution.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury, you may have grounds for both a workers’ compensation claim against your employer and a personal injury claim against a third party, such as a contractor. That means it may be possible to recover compensation for losses that are not covered by workers’ compensation, such as pain and suffering.
The insurance companies that represent the construction trade have highly trained teams working to keep expenses related to construction accident injury claims to an absolute minimum. Don’t go it alone if you are seeking compensation. Call us today.
