According to the latest U.S. Department of Labor statistics, 20% of all fatal workplace accidents are construction site accidents. Thousands of workers are severely injured each year at residential, commercial and industrial construction sites.

Types of Construction Accident Injuries

Potential injuries caused by construction site accidents:

  • Loss of limbs
  • Head injury
  • Fractures
  • Amputation
  • Scarring
  • Paralysis
  • 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 caused by a third party’s negligence or a defective product, there may be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

If you have been injured in a construction accident, let our Michigan construction accident attorneys help you pursue the compensation you deserve. Call today for a complimentary consultation.

Common Causes of Construction Site Accidents?

Geoffrey Fieger and his team have fought for and won monetary compensation for many laborers injured in construction site accidents. Our experienced Michigan team understands the reach and limitations of workers’ compensation laws, and they’ll put this experience to work for you.

Common causes of construction site accidents include:

  • Poor or inadequate training
  • Fires and explosions
  • Crane and hoist accidents
  • Superintendent negligence
  • Third-party negligence
  • Collapsed structures
  • Improper use or maintenance of equipment
  • Mechanical hazards
  • Nail gun accidents
  • Safety code violations
  • OSHA violations
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Slips and falls
  • Defective equipment
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Electrical shocks
  • Welding accidents
  • Falling objects

Contractors and site owners, under state and federal laws and regulations, must provide a reasonably safe work environment. When these requirements are not met, it is negligence—and it’s wrong.

If you or a family member have been injured in a construction site accident due to someone else’s negligence, and feel you have a claim for your injuries, contact the experts at Fieger Law. Our team will review your case, get the facts and fight to win big for you.
