  Construction Accidents
 


On-the-job injuries can occur in any workplace, but there are some areas where accidents occur more frequently than others. Construction accidents occur on an all-too-frequent basis due to the dangerous conditions that are present on construction sites. Even though safety has become a primary concern for construction workers and many state and federal laws and regulations have been put in place to prevent accidents from happening, accidents still happen because of the nature of the work and the hazards that are faced by workers.

At the Barnett Law Firm in Decatur, Georgia, workers’ compensation attorney Hank Barnett has been helping injured workers obtain workers’ compensation benefits for more than two decades. For construction workers, including general contractors and subcontractors, construction accidents can cause serious injuries that require expensive medical treatment and time away from work in order to complete the recovery process. Obtaining compensation for injuries suffered in those accidents is critical for workers and their families. Applying for workers’ compensation in construction accident cases can be a complex process, however, and having an experienced Atlanta, Georgia, construction accident lawyer by your side is always a responsible choice.

In construction accidents, it is often difficult to understand who is liable for the injuries. We will help you understand who is responsible and how to pursue the medical care and benefits that you need.

Construction Accidents and Common Job Site Injuries

There are many hazards and dangerous conditions that exist on construction sites that may put workers at risk for injury. Common construction site accidents include:

  • Electrocution

  • Fires and explosions

  • Exposure to harmful chemicals or substances

  • Falls from scaffolding

  • Falling debris or objects

  • Malfunctioning or defective equipment

  • Heavy machinery accidents

When workplace accidents occur in office settings and in other similar areas of employment, the employees are often able to return to work after they have fully recovered. Due to the physical and demanding nature of the work, however, a large percentage of construction accident victims are unable to return to working in construction for the remainder of their lives.

This and other issues can make it difficult to understand how much and what type of benefits you may be eligible for if you have been injured in a construction accident.
