While working in construction is a great way to make a living, it’s also a dangerous trade. About 20 percent of all worker deaths in the US occur on construction sites, according to OSHA. Also, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that about 150,000 workers are injured at construction sites annually. These injuries can result in serious injury and huge medical bills. Often, these injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, not your own. In this situation, reliable, experienced legal representation can help you get back on your feet.

OSHA identifies four main types of dangerous accidents in construction areas. These accidents are responsible for nearly 60 percent of all deaths on construction sites. OSHA’s “fatal four” are:
If you’re involved in any of these situations, there are two ways that you can proceed with your case. First, you can file a workers’ compensation claim. After all, the reason every state has workers’ compensation laws is to help laborers in this exact scenario.

Instead, you’ll just have to prove that you were injured during the course of doing your job. A workers’ compensation claim will allow you to claim financial restitution for:
In addition, you can file a personal injury lawsuit to seek compensation for other damages. On a construction site, there is a myriad of culprits that may be responsible for your accident like other workers, subcontractors, or even architects. However, it will be more difficult to win a personal injury lawsuit than to simply make a workers’ compensation claim. While workers’ compensation claims don’t require you to establish fault in your situation, personal injury cases do. You’ll also need to prove that your accident was caused by someone’s negligence. This means that another party had the ability to prevent your accident but did not act to do so.
Neither path is easy. They both involve completing extensive paperwork and experience with the legal system. Instead of trying to handle your construction accident case by yourself, trust attorney Eftekhari to guide you through the legal process.
