Morgan & Morgan
What Are Some Common Construction Accident Injuries?
From our experience handling these cases in Pittsburgh and all over the nation, we’ve seen clients who’ve suffered broken bones, electrical shocks, burns, fractures, head injuries, and even injuries caused by falling objects or machinery accidents. These incidents often result from unsafe working conditions, inadequate safety measures, equipment failure, or anything along those lines.
Can Construction Accidents Cause Long-Term Effects?
Yes, a considerable portion of them do. These include chronic pain, permanent disability, traumatic brain injuries, respiratory problems due to exposure to hazardous materials, and psychological issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Remember that the severity of long-term effects depends on the nature of the accident and the injuries sustained.
What Are Some Examples of Negligence at a Construction Site?
When we talk about negligence at a construction site, we mean things like inadequate training, lack of safety protocols, failure to provide proper safety equipment, poor maintenance of equipment, or even failure to address known hazards. In some cases, negligence can involve improper supervision, insufficient warning signs, and violations of OSHA regulations.
How Is Negligence Determined in a Construction Accident Case?
Four key elements will come into play when establishing whether the supposed at-fault party was negligent: duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. What this basically means is that the responsible party must have had a duty to maintain a safe environment, breached that duty through negligence, directly caused the accident, and resulted in measurable damages to the victim.
When Do I File a Workers’ Compensation Claim and When Do I File a Lawsuit?
It depends on what really transpired. Here’s a general rule: you’ll file a workers' compensation claim for on-the-job injuries, regardless of fault. On the other hand, if a third party's negligence contributes to the accident, you may also file a personal injury lawsuit against them to seek additional compensation for your injuries and losses.
Will Workers’ Comp Cover All Injuries?
Not really, and that’s why you shouldn’t rush to file a claim, especially before seeking legal counsel. Workers' compensation generally covers medical expenses and a portion of lost wages, but it may not cover non-economic damages like pain and suffering, all of which you may be entitled to.
