Few situations are as inherently dangerous as construction sites, for obvious reasons. Every day the map changes. Giant machines move alongside workers and other vehicles. Power tools, falling objects, dangerous chemicals all poise safety challenges. Walls and scaffolds collapse, causing catastrophic injuries and even death.
OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) describes construction work as the most hazardous to workers of any U.S. industry.
These accidents do not lead to workers' compensation claims unless only one employer is working at the site. Usually, many different contractors work in close proximity. From our office in Alpharetta, our personal injury lawyers are able to file claims for more than workers' compensation usually allows.
Not all construction injuries are discreet events. Many develop over time — back problems, lung problems, problems with vision and hearing. Sudden injuries are easier to prove but gradual injuries are also compensable.
