Construction Accidents in Shreveport
Construction site accidents are extremely dangerous, and the utmost care
and caution should be exercised at all time when on or near a site.
The following are all serious threats to individuals who are not properly
trained to be there or those working on the site;
- Unfinished buildings
- Uneven pavement
- Electrical appliances
- Construction vehicles
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury on a construction site, contact
an injury lawyer from our firm as soon as possible to discuss your case
and determine if you should seek monetary compensation for your injuries.
What are common injuries caused by construction accidents?
Construction accidents should be carefully and closely monitored by the
person in charge, usually a foreman. If the foreman does not ensure that
every person present is aware of the dangers that are present, a serious
injury can occur.
The following injuries can occur if proper caution and safety regulations
are not followed:
- Broken bones
- Burn injuries
- Catastrophic injuries
If you were injured on a construction site while on the job, you can be
entitled to third party compensation in addition to workers' compensation,
and a personal injury attorney can help you seek both types of compensation
for your injuries. Being injured on the job can have a detrimental effect
on your livelihood if you are unable to continue working and earning your
income. Filing a workers' compensation claim can help you make ends
meet while recovering from your injuries.
