Construction is an important industry, but one that can cause a number of accidents — not only to construction workers, but also pedestrians and passers-by. Crane accidents, burns, trip and fall accidents, electrocutions, exposure to asbestos or other hazardous materials, and being struck by falling objects are just a few of the many hazards you might encounter on a construction site.
Falling from a considerable height is another hazard of construction work, and one that can cause traumatic brain injury that can cause a range of long-lasting problems, from paralysis to reduced cognitive function.
What can you do if you’ve been hurt at a construction site?
If you’ve been injured in any kind of construction-related accident in the New England area, call attorney David Dwork as soon as possible. It can be difficult to know where to turn when you suffer a construction-related injury, whether you are working on the site, live near it or are merely passing by when disaster strikes.
For instance, who owns the equipment that injured you? What company is responsible for overseeing safety at the site? What if the construction company claims that you’re at fault for your injury? And what can you do if your workers’ compensation insurance denies your claim? Hiring an attorney who is experienced in both premises liability and construction law cases as well as workers’ compensation claims is the best way to make sure your rights are protected.
