You could be injured in many types of construction accident

As a construction worker, you could be injured on the job at any time. As a result, your life could be turned upside down without notice.

Some of the most common reasons for a construction accident include:

-- Slip and fall

-- Fall from heights, such as a roof or scaffolding

-- Crane accident

-- Wall collapse

-- Building collapse

-- Construction vehicle accident

-- Electrical shock

-- Fire or explosion

As you can imagine, a construction accident can cause serious injury or even death. For this reason, employees and employers alike do whatever they can to avoid trouble on the job site. Unfortunately, this is not always enough to keep everyone safe.

Take the following steps if you are injured in a construction accident:

-- Receive immediate medical attention

-- Report the accident and your injuries to your employer

-- File a claim for workers' compensation benefits

Along with the above, you'll want to determine if there was any third-party liability. This will go a long way in determining how you receive compensation, as you may be in position to file a lawsuit against the negligent party.

At our law firm, we understand that construction sites can be extremely dangerous. We also understand that accidents happen every now and again.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, you should first focus on your health and well-being. From there, don't hesitate to learn more about your legal rights for receiving compensation. You'll need this money to get by until you're able to return to work.
