Types Of Injuries In Construction Accidents
It is almost inevitable to get into some form of injury when working in construction, and construction workers have measures already in place when accidents happen in the workplace. However, as construction accidents come in a wide array of different forms, they can produce many types of injuries. And some of these can be dangerous or even fatal. These can include:
- Eye injury, including vision impairment and blindness
- Head Injury
- Brain Injury
- Broken Bones
- Knee Injury
- Neck Injury
- Ankle Injury
- Illness caused by toxic exposure
- Spinal cord injury, including paraplegia and quadriplegia damage
These injuries can sometimes lead to the victim unable to continue their lives the way they did before suffering from their injury.
What Types Of Compensation Can You Recover From A Construction Accident
Construction workers who have suffered injuries in the workplace are almost always entitled to some form of compensation. The person who was injured in a construction project is only one of the many parties that could be held responsible for the accident. If multiple individuals are responsible for the damages, the worker may seek compensation that is enough to cover the cost of the incident. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, you may be wondering what type of compensation you can recover. Construction accidents can often produce several different types of injuries and disabilities that will require significant medical treatment. Apart from workers compensation, a victim who has suffered serious injuries can pursue further compensation for damages such as:
- Lost Wages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and Suffering
- Medical Expenses Reimbursement
- Loss of Limbs
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
- Punitive Damages
- Physical Therapy
- Medical Equipment Expenses
- And more
While many workers’ compensation programs provide adequate benefits for the pain and suffering caused by a construction injury, they often do not cover the necessary medical expenses and treatments. This issue can lead to an employee’s potential loss of wages. When consulting with an attorney from Ask4SAM, we make sure that the compensation you receive is equal to the damages incurred on you.
Personal Injury Lawsuit For Brooklyn Construction Accidents
In addition to workers’ compensation, it may be appropriate to pursue a personal injury lawsuit with the help of an experienced construction accident lawyer. Lawsuits involving work-related injuries can be very complex. Determining responsibility can depend on many factors including hazardous practices, work-site dangers, faulty design, malfunctioning equipment, poor hiring practices, and inadequate supervision. Responsible parties can include one or more of the following:
- General contractors
- Prime contractors
- Construction site owners
- Equipment manufacturers
When working with an attorney from Silberstein, Awad & Miklos, we’ll make sure to investigate whoever should be held liable for the accident in a personal injury lawsuit. We have a team of experts that assist our lawyers in determining liable parties and establishing the evidence necessary in taking the case to trial if necessary.
