Construction Work Injuries

Receive Compensation for Construction Accident Injuries

Construction workers and artisans face the risk of injury every day, whether they are working on a residential renovation or a major commercial development.

A construction site presents many situations that can result in injury to a worker. You might operate machinery or work on scaffolding or a rooftop. You might spend your day constantly bending and lifting, or using repetitive motions. Carpenters, electricians, masons, roofers, plumbers, laborers, and other types of construction workers may be entitled to workers’ compensation if they are injured while doing their job.

How do construction workers and artisans get injured?

A fall from a scaffold or roof can cause debilitating, long-term injuries, as can working with faulty or improperly maintained equipment and machinery. You may have been exposed to hazardous materials like asbestos, lead, or chemicals. Perhaps your boss is rushing to finish a project and expects you to work overtime or in unsafe weather. Maybe you aren’t given the personal protective equipment you need to do your job safely. All these situations could put you at risk and entitle you to receive workers’ compensation benefits if you are injured.
