Construction Accident Law FIrm

Construction sites are commonplace for on the job injuries.  In fact, according to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, three of the ten most common safety violations occurred on construction sites.  Individuals who have been injured at their place of work can have many obstacles to go through.  Part of fully recovering from an accident means seeking legal representation to help recover financially from medical bills, time lost from work, pain, and suffering, and how the injuries will affect your future ability to work.

Common construction site injuries in Utah

  • Head injuries:  People who build things for a living are more prone to injuries when compared to other carriers.  Head injuries can happen when heavy objects such as tools or building materials fall from above on workers down below.  They can also occur if someone was to fall in a dangerous area that was not properly marked or quarantined off.
  • Burns and scars:  Construction sites use many hot and combustible materials for various reasons.  One of the most common injuries happens when a worker has been burned while performing their job duties.  Examples include fires, explosions, exposed wires, chemicals, or other dangerous materials that can burn when it comes in contact with skin.
  • Loss of fingers or limbs:  Workers can lose their limbs from various accidents that can happen.  Perhaps an arm has been crushed because a heavy object or wall has fallen.  In other cases, a finger has accidentally been cut off or must be amputated because it has been severely mangled.
