Construction zones are notoriously some of the most dangerous and hazard-filled of all work environments. As such, it may not be surprising to learn that the injuries and fatalities sustained in such accidents are not only common, but also incredibly serious and often life-altering.
Accidents that occur on a construction site have the potential to severely injure, if not kill, those involved because of the heavy machinery that is often present. Unfortunately, these are many construction incidents that could have been avoided entirely if the proper safety precautions had been implemented prior to the accident.
The construction sector is comprised of new work, additions, alterations, maintenance and repairs that can happen on construction project sites or at a fixed place of business. There are a number of different situations that can lead to injuries while on a construction site, and some of these incidents include:
Workers can also be injured when they are run-over by operating equipment. It is for these reasons that it is critically important for proper protection equipment to be used while on the workplace. Employers and contractors have a right to ensure that effective safety measures are implemented and workers are educated on how to operate equipment safely.
If you have been injured while working on a construction site, you must take immediate action to preserve the evidence from your accident that may help you win a claim for compensation. As you attempt to recover from an injury that was sustained while on the job or even while visiting a construction site, you will likely be asked to complete a series of complicated legal processes. Unfortunately, your health and well-being are not the primary concern for the insurance companies and business owners trying to address the financial aspects of the accident.
