Construction accidents are frequently associated with occurrences such as falls from heights, electrocutions, equipment hazards, and forklift injuries. One major source of injury; however, that often gets overlooked is debris on construction sites. Construction site debris can be the source of many types of injury.
Whether one slips on fallen debris or liquid left on surfaces or gets hit by falling pieces of debris, the consequences for injured victims can be far reaching. Trips and falls are among the most common types of accidents related to construction site debris. Those who may be involved in this type of accident may be eligible to pursue workers’ compensation benefits for on the job injuries, as well as possibly pursue third party litigation depending on the circumstances of the accident.
Pain and suffering, lost wages, and mounting medical expenses are among the reasons it is important to pursue compensation claims if a construction worker has been injured on a project site. Head injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and bone fractures are just a few of the types of injuries that can seriously impact one’s life. In some cases, a worker’s injuries can prove fatal and leave their loved ones with a financial burden they may not be able to bear.
