Many people don't ever think about construction accidents until they happen. And make no mistake - they do happen. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor statistics from U.S. Department and Labor in 2001, they happen more regularly than many believe. Some of the most common construction accidents include sprains and/or strains, bruises, contusions, cuts, lacerations, heat burns, amputations, carpal tunnel syndrome, fractures, and tendonitis. Though most of these construction accidents are not fatal, they are inconveniences that can lead to long-term unemployment.
Often, construction accidents are a result of contact with equipment, strikes from or against foreign objects, overexertion, falls, fires/explosions, assaults, or exposure to harmful chemicals or other substances. (U.S. Dept. of Labor, 2001) They don't have to occur at construction sites, either; they can occur anywhere.
However, due to our human tendency not to think about the worst, most individuals don't plan for the possibility of construction accidents, even when they work for, with, or around construction companies. But when construction accidents occur, they are devastating.
Not surprisingly, the victim and his or her family members are left in a highly emotional state, worried about too many concerns at once. Will health insurance cover all the mounting medical bills? Will the victim's employer fire him or her because he or she cannot go back to work? What will he or she do for a living if manual labor is impossible? And, of course, should the family hire an attorney who specializes in construction accidents?
