Tuskegee Construction Accident Law Firm
Construction accident overview
The United States Department of Labor reports over 4,000 people were killed on the job in 2009. Construction work is rewarding—but hazardous. Construction leads all other industries in the number of injuries at work. Serving Montgomery, Union Springs, and Tuskegee, the construction accident law firm of Frank M. Wilson has a successful 30-year track record assisting workers suffering injury resulting from construction site accidents.
Union Springs construction accident attorneys
In May, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited an Alabama company a potential $200,000 in fines for exposing workers to fall hazards. In April, another company faced proposed fines of $69,000 for safety violations including machine guarding hazards. In March, yet another Alabama construction company faced $47,000 in fines for exposing workers to possible cave-in accidents.
Safety violations—and construction accidents—happen far too often. Construction workplace injuries occur throughout Alabama, giving rise to compensation claims by those injured on dangerous worksites.
In Montgomery, Tuskegee, and Union Springs, our construction accident lawyers thoroughly investigate the causes of these accidents and provide accurate assessment and aggressive representation to obtain adequate financial payment for workers injured on the job.
Below are leading types of construction accidents and the injuries they can cause:
- Being Hit: Being struck by an object is a common construction site injury. Our Union Springs construction accident attorneys have investigated and represented individuals injured by vehicles, falling objects, and moving machines such as cranes. Being hit by a machine part or object can result in crushing injuries, amputation, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, disability, and death.
- Falls: According to OSHA, elevated- and same-level falls are the leading cause of death and injury—accounting for one-third of all construction site deaths. Falls from scaffolding and ladders, through inadequate walkways or flooring, and from cranes or other machinery commonly lead to injuries including broken bones, lacerations, impalement upon exposed rebar, spinal cord and traumatic brain injury, and death.
- Electrical accidents: Accidents involving electrocution or burns are a common hazard on construction sites. Employees frequently work on, or near, powerful overhead electrical lines and are injured by inadvertent contact, or arcing from power line to machinery. Electrical burns are a serious injury causing deep, often permanent tissue damage, disability, and death.
