Construction sites are dangerous, and construction workers suffer more injuries and fatalities at work than those who work in other industries. Because of the risks and dangers involved, there is no room for error when it comes to construction site safety. Construction injuries are often severe and catastrophic. Workers’ compensation benefits are usually available to employees who have been injured on the job, but those benefits generally will not cover all of your injuries and damages. However, third parties, such as subcontractors, inspectors, or other site visitors, are often responsible for construction accidents and injuries.
If a third party is responsible for your accident and injuries, you may be able to recover additional compensation under a personal injury claim. If third-party negligence led to your construction site accident, an attorney with experience in construction site injuries can help you get the compensation that you deserve. The attorneys at Tiano O’Dell, PLLC, represent those who have been injured and lost loved ones in construction site accidents.

Common Types of Construction Accidents and Injuries
The four most common types of construction accidents include falls, being struck by an object, being caught in between two objects, and electrocution. Other common accidents and factors include exposure to toxins, equipment defects, and failing to follow appropriate safety standards. Unfortunately, construction accidents often result in severe and catastrophic injuries, requiring extensive medical care and expenses. In some cases, these injuries can be permanent or fatal.
Construction Accident Compensation
To fully recover for the injuries and damages you have suffered, you need to calculate the full value of your past, ongoing, and future accident-related losses. For example, in addition to adding up the medical bills you have received, you also need to determine the cost of your ongoing medical care as well as any medical expenses you expect to incur in the future as a result of your injuries.
Compensation for other losses frequently includes pain and suffering, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity. When construction accident injuries are fatal, surviving family members might be entitled to a financial recovery for their losses, such as funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of the value of the decedent’s household services.
