MINNESOTA CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT LAWYER
Construction sites are some of the most dangerous work places. According to OSHA (Occupational Safety Health Administration) and the DOL (Department of Labor), thousands of construction workers are injured on the job every year, and hundreds die. The only two occupations that are more dangerous than construction are mining and agriculture. If you have been injured on the jobsite through no fault of your own, or if a wrongful death has occurred on the jobsite, it may be time to contact an experienced Minnesota construction accident attorney.
There are many ways a construction worker can be injured while on the job:
- Falls – improper ladders, scaffolding, holes
- Car or truck crashes – on the jobsite and in highway construction zones
- Machine and equipment – accidents with cranes, forklifts, power tools and any defective tools or equipment
- Stuck by falling object
- Toxicity from chemical fumes used on the jobsite
- Electrocution or electric shock
The injuries can be very serious and may cause you to lose much work time, or make it impossible to return to work. From burns and broken bones to severe brain and spinal cord injuries to loss of limb and wrongful death, you are entitled to full compensation for your losses. Workers' compensation may cover some portion of your losses; however, often this simply does not fully cover your injuries, loss of work time and pain and suffering.
WHO SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR MY CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT?
- Manufacturers of equipment that you or your co-workers used
- Engineers and architects
- Construction companies
- Subcontractors and other workers or supervisors
- Insurance companies
- Anyone else who has a legal obligation to ensure a safe work environment
