Construction workers are routinely injured or killed in construction accidents each year. Scaffolding accidents are a common source of injuries, constituting nearly two-thirds of all construction accidents. Other common causes of construction accidents include: falls, electrocution and improperly braced excavation trenches.
When a worker is injured on a construction site, the worker may be limited to collecting worker’s compensation from his employer. There are, however, many instances where the worker can obtain compensation for losses from other non-employer parties who may be liable for the construction accident. You need an experienced lawyer to help you determine whether you are entitled to compensation from third parties.
