The construction industry contains some of the most risky occupations in the world, and a typical construction site is home to a myriad of potentially life-threatening hazards.
Any small amount of negligence or shortcuts on safety procedures can have utterly calamitous consequences for those involved and the families that may depend on them. Many might be lucky enough to get away with a few bumps and bruises, but some are more unlucky and may end up permanently disabled.
All this can lead to the inevitable construction injury claim.
So how do you proceed with construction injury claims?
Most construction accident claims are caused by falling from a height, but there are many other common injuries/risks to be found:
*Falls, slips or trips on slippery/poorly maintained surfaces
* Defective scaffolds
* Being hit by falling objects
* Faulty safety harnesses
* Electric shocks
Just some of the many dangers that if not properly addressed can cause horrific injury and long-term difficulties for those involved. It's because of the tremendous potential risks involved in construction that employers are obliged to abide by highly strict safety regulations, where all machinery and the working environment must be properly maintained to the correct standards of safety, and all safety equipment in good working order.
Accidents resulting from the instances above, coupled with neglect to safety can cause such serious injuries as a fractured skull, broken bones, back injuries and even spinal injuries.
All of this can lead to construction accident claims being filed before the courts
When one considers the potential severity of these injuries, and how big an impact they can have on one's life, it's vital to know after suffering such an accident where you stand legally. If you have suffered a similar on-site injury to those above, or any other that resulted from others' undue negligence, you may well be entitled to compensation. But these types of claims are not always as simple as they seem at first. That's why it's imperative you find the best possible legal assistance, offering essential advice to ensure you know exactly where you stand.
