construction accident injuries

“A construction accident lawyer like Mike McKell with experience in construction injury cases can advocate on behalf of the injured client in order to claim all the compensation entitled to them.”

Many jobs involve hazards, but injuries and worker-related illness are more common in construction than among many other industries.

Examples of construction accidents include injuries as minor as sprains, strains, muscle tears, injuries to the back, slips, falls and trips. Major injuries often include severe falls, being struck by an object or equipment, electrocution, caught in/between objects, worker illness caused by hazards on the worksite, or being struck by a vehicle. One worker was trapped underneath debris when scaffolding fell on top. While some construction accidents can truly be called accidents, more often than not, accidents that result in injury are the result of faulty human decisions, code violations or even sheer negligence of safety protocols which were not followed.

State and federal laws are put in place ensure safety protocols are followed in all states to protect the safety of workers as well as the pubic near the construction site. When these laws and regulations are not followed or corners are cut, serious accident, personal injury or death can result.

Minor construction injuries may take a few days to recover; however, major construction injuries can result in weeks or months off of work, lost wages, medical bills, medication, and physical therapy just to name a few. Lost wages and high medical bills can result in stressful financial situations at home or with family members with whom you have commitments. If a spouse needs to then work to cover financial bills, there now may be added costs of childcare and new work-related costs involved. All these factors combined can create a very stressful home environment when it should be a time to focus on recovery and getting back to normal.

Stress can mount as insurance claims need to be filed in a timely manner in order to pay medical bills or insurance attorneys call to offer a reduced lump sum or a letter is received that declines the claim all together.

In these situations, a construction accident lawyer like Mike McKell with experience in construction injury cases can advocate on behalf of the injured client in order to claim all the compensation entitled to them. Construction accident lawyers also alleviate much of the burden of legal matters, allowing individuals and families time to focus on recovery.
