  • Falls from scaffolding or unstable roof
  • Burns, Cuts, Bruises
  • Bone Breaks
  • Joint Dislocations
  • Concussions
  • Puncture wounds
  • Tendon Injuries

Determining fault is pivotal with these cases, so it is important that you are transparent during your consultation about how your injury happened. For example, if your injury occurred because you were unsure of how to properly use the equipment, then your employer would be at fault for not providing you with the knowledge you needed. However, if you told your employer that you knew how to properly use the equipment and you are then injured, the fault would not be on your employer. Construction site injuries can happen for a variety of reasons we have listed some of the common ways here:

  • Equipment Injuries
    • Lack of proper education
    • Faulty Equipment
  • Unsafe Work Conditions
    • Lack of proper equipment
    • Extreme temperatures
    • Not following proper safety codes
