Construction Accidents

Minnesota & Nebraska Construction Accident Attorneys

Construction workers encounter many hazards in the course of their work day. Some of these hazards lead to injuries and some of them don’t. When they do, a construction worker has the opportunity to file for workers’ compensation. If the injury is caused by a third party, then there is the option to file a personal injury lawsuit against that third party for their negligence.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident or a loved one was killed, you may have a personal injury or wrongful death claim against the responsible party. With the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, you can recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and more. When filing a work comp claim, your attorney can assist you just as they have assisted thousands of others throughout Minnesota and Nebraska with their claims so that the chances of approval are increased.

Moving You Forward Toward Recovery

There are different causes of construction worker injuries. They include:

  • Falls from ladders and scaffolding
  • Truck accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Falling objects
  • Forklift, crane, and other heavy machinery accidents
  • Burns from chemical exposure, fires, and explosions
  • Accidents involving power tools or nail guns
  • Safety violations, creating unsafe worksites
  • Truck accidents
  • Accidents caused by defective equipment, machines, and tools

There are many types of accidents that can occur when on the job at a construction site, which is why it is very important to hold the responsible party accountable. By doing so, you receive the compensation you deserve, but you also make them more aware of their actions so they can ensure that precautions are put in place to avoid such accidents happening again.
