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:

  • Burns
  • Electrocution
  • 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
  • Sub-contractors
  • Prime contractors
  • Construction site owners
  • Engineers
  • Architects
  • 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.

I will Highly Recommend this Firm to All my Family and Friends.Stacie Mikhael 1 review 2 years ago I have assisted a friend with a slip and fall case and discovered this law firm by word of mouth. I cannot express how wonderful the lawyers and staff at this law firm were. They went above and beyond and ALWAYS kept me updated regarding the status of the case. They never made me feel like I was a bother, and always so quick to answer questions or concerns by telephone or email. Most especially, Alexandria Awad Esq. She was so professional, efficient and a true gem to this law firm. In the end, the settlement was better than expected. I would recommend this firm highly as you will not be disappointed.Joan Lee 7 reviews   a month ago I never want to use this law firm again! But not because they're bad! Because I don't want to be hurt ever again. But if I ever was hurt in an injury, I would call them in a heartbeat! They know what they're doing and they get the job done and they get you the compensation that you need and that you deserve. There's a reason that they're one of the best personal injury law firms in all of Brooklyn, Bronx, and the rest of New York City.Charlotte Matthews Local Guide ・21 reviews   2 months ago I was the victim of medical malpractice from a Hospital in Brooklyn. I figured I would just suffer for their mistake for the rest of my life, but then I spoke to one of the personal injury attorneys here, and she explained what my rights were and how I could get significant financial compensation to cover lost work, pain, suffering, medical bills, therapy, and more! The best part is there really is no cost to working with these guys because they'll take your case and represent you at no upfront cost and they only get paid a percentage of the ultimate settlement if they win and the settlements are so large that I had no problem at all saying okay to them taking a very fair and small amount. Essentially free money! For more reviews from satisfied SAM clients, please click here.
