fcf8847a-74cb-4481-964f-dc29be4f91faThe construction job site has been described by some as an accident waiting to happen. Construction workers routinely suffer a number of workplace injuries and deaths that exceed the numbers of other occupations. Unlike workplace accidents in an office environment, for example, construction site accidents can leave the injury victim with severe, catastrophic, or even fatal injuries. Even a non-fatal construction site accident can result in a loss of limb or a disfiguring injury, adding serious emotional and mental suffering on top of the physical pain caused by the injury.

Investigating construction site accidents can reveal a number of potential individuals who are responsible for your injuries. You need an aggressive, thorough, and experienced construction site accident attorney to help you recover the compensation to which you may be entitled for your personal injury claim.

Common Types of Construction Site Accidents

Whether the construction site is the location of a new high-rise building or a residential home lot, construction sites typically involve heavy machinery, power and hand tools, and workers that must climb to tall heights in order to complete their job duties. As a result, any construction site can be the location of any of the following types of injuries:

  • Falls from heights;
  • Falling objects that strike victims on the head;
  • Slip, trip, and fall accidents;
  • Overexertion injuries;
  • Head, neck, and spine injuries;
  • Broken bones;
  • Amputations and/or crushing injuries;
  • Strikes by heavy machinery; and
  • Other fatal and nonfatal injuries.

Some of these injury types may involve one or more injuries to the victim. For example, a strike by heavy machinery can involve crushing injuries, amputation, and broken bones, just to name a few of the injuries that a victim can suffer from this type of accident. Thoroughly investigating your construction accident will uncover not only the extent of your injuries but also who may be responsible for causing the accident:

  • Another employee or a supervisor from your company;
  • An employee from another company working on the same jobsite;
  • The manufacturer of a particular product or part;
  • The foreman of the construction site; or
  • Other negligent individuals.

Once the extent of your injuries is known and all responsible parties have been identified, your Virginia construction accident attorney will be able to advise you about the best course of action. This can result in you obtaining monetary compensation for your injuries and losses from those individual(s) responsible for contributing to your accident.
