Construction is a high-risk vocation. The dangerous tools, often chaotic environment, heavy machinery, and fast paced work makes being a construction worker one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 1 in 10 construction workers sustains some kind of work-related injury every year. Some of the most common accidents, as any top construction site accident lawyer Fort Pierce has to offer may agree, involve:

Five Common Construction Accidents

  1. Falls. In 2014, falls accounted for 39.9% of all construction worker deaths. Non-fatal injuries from falls can be extremely serious. As confirmed by a construction site accident lawyer Fort Pierce residents trust, injuries from falls may include:
    • Paralysis due to spinal cord damage. Paralysis can be temporary or permanent.
    • Traumatic brain injury. This can affect motor function, memory, and create sudden mood swings, among other symptoms.
    • Broken bones in the limbs, neck, and back.
    • Sprained or torn ligaments, ankles, and muscle tissue.
  2. Electrocution. Electrical accidents on construction sites accounted for 8.5% of all construction worker fatalities in 2014. A Fort Pierce construction site accident lawyer has likely seen many non-fatal injuries due to electrocution. The legal team at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt works hard to win accident victims a full and fair settlement.
  3. Struck by an object. Workers who were struck by an object and died as a result totalled 8.4% of construction fatalities. Objects that can potentially injure or kill construction workers include:
    • Drywall or plywood panels
    • Lumber or other construction materials such as metal studs
    • Metal or PVC piping
    • Hand tools that fall from platforms, scaffolding, or framework
  4. Caught in or in-between. More than one percent of construction fatalities in 2014 were caused by workers getting caught between two objects or caught inside something. Scenarios include:
    • Crushed by machinery or construction materials
    • Caught between an elevator and the surrounding wall or floor
  5. Transportation related. This is a broad category that includes:
    • Operation of cranes, bulldozers, rollers, plows, and many other types of vehicles that can injure construction workers.
    • Construction workers using official vehicles to move between job sites or run job errands may get injured en route.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
