The Help You Need After A Debilitating Construction Site Accident
Construction sites are always dangerous to one degree or another. Because of the type of work involved and the significant potential for injury that these sites have, accidents are all but inevitable. Even if you are doing your job correctly and following safety protocols, you can still get injured. With luck, it is only minor cuts and bruises, but sometimes, the injuries are more severe. Lauren Levin Geary has been practicing personal injury law in Pennsylvania for over two decades. She has extensive experience in helping people get compensation after a construction site injury.
Construction Companies Have An Obligation To Keep Workers Safe
Construction company owners and managers have an obligation to provide adequate equipment and training. Those in charge must also maintain a safe working environment on construction sites. While there are many, many different ways you can be hurt on a site, here are some of the more common causes of workplace accidents:
- Unsafe or defective equipment
- Tools that don’t have protective guards
- Unsecured loads
- Open trenches/uncovered holes that workers fall through
- Inadequate training
- Tripping hazards
- Electrical wiring mishaps
Construction site accidents often result in broken bones, burns, eye injuries or soft tissue injuries. In more severe accidents, injuries may include spinal cord damage, paralysis or traumatic brain injuries. By working with a qualified and proven personal injury attorney, you can better understand your rights, your options and how much your injury is truly worth. Do not leave it up to the insurance company to decide how much compensation is adequate for you.
The insurance company is profit-driven. This means that it will not offer maximum compensation unless it absolutely has to. Work with an attorney who is experienced in personal injury cases and will be able to calculate the true value of your injury. Get your personal injury questions answered.
