Types of Construction Accident Injuries
Potential injuries caused by construction site accidents:
- Loss of limbs
- Head injury
- Wrongful death
In most cases, an injured employee cannot bring a lawsuit against their employer because, under the law, they are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, in cases where a construction site accident is due to a third party’s negligence or defective product, there may be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
