Construction worker wearing tools in house that is being built

Construction workers often wear correct safety equipment and avoid taking unnecessary risks that violate construction worksite safety protocols. But due to inherent dangers that exist at many construction worksites, construction accidents are a common occurrence and often cause injuries to construction workers. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Bolen Robinson & Ellis understand how life changing a construction accident can be, and our personal injury attorneys are committed to ensuring that those injured in construction related injuries obtain the results they deserve.

About Construction Accidents

Treatment for injuries sustained in construction accidents are often covered by workers’ compensation. However, third-party contractors, property and construction worksite owners, and equipment manufacturers can often be held liable for injuries sustained at construction worksites. Many of these injuries occur because of:

  • Scaffolding and ladder falls
  • Electric shocks
  • Burns
  • Chemical spills
  • Machinery accidents, such as forklift or crane accidents
  • Falling materials and debris, such as brick or rock
  • Explosions
  • Tool malfunctions

When a construction worker is injured, injures may include:

  • Head injuries.
  • Fractured bones.
  • Cuts and bruising.
  • Burn injuries.
  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • Amputations.
  • Internal injuries.
