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. 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.
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
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.
