Construction sites present hazards to workers, passers-by and bystanders, so it’s no wonder that thousands of people suffer construction-related injuries each year. Many of those injuries could have been prevented. If someone’s negligence contributed to your injury, you may be entitled to compensation.

Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC can help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries and damages resulting from a construction accident.

Common Types of Construction Injuries

Construction workers suffer the most injuries, the majority of which are caused by:

  • Falls
  • Blows from an object
  • Electrocution
  • Getting caught in between objects, structures or machinery

However, construction accidents are not limited to those at work. Bystanders frequently become accident victims as a result of:

  • Construction vehicles, which have large blind spots, limited maneuverability and significantly more gross vehicle weight
  • Falling objects from cranes, trucks, storage piles or containers, etc.
  • Hazardous materials, off-gassing from which may cause skin irritation, burns and/or respiratory distress
  • Slips and falls on uneven and/or slippery surfaces that were not appropriately marked

Bystanders may also suffer emotional distress from the constant noise.

When You May Seek Compensation for Construction Injuries

Many construction-related injuries can be avoided when the proper safety protocols are followed and pedestrians and bystanders are warned of safety risks. So, construction companies may be liable for injuries if accidents resulted from:

  • Poor equipment or site maintenance
  • Lack of compliance with safety regulations and policies
  • Lack of signage

Accidents victims may seek compensation through the liable party’s insurance company. Because construction workers suffer more fatal accidents than many other industries, surviving family members may seek compensation on their behalf through a wrongful death suit.
