What Should You Do After a Construction Accident?

After a serious injury on a construction site, it is extremely urgent to capture the evidence immediately. Hazardous conditions get removed or repaired, witnesses disappear, and precautions get implemented and memories fade. If you’re an employee on a construction site who needs assistance with worker’s compensation benefits and are wondering who you can hold responsible for your pain and suffering, you need an experienced construction site injury lawyer at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers to guide you. Sometimes insurance companies will deny your construction site liability claim simply because there are too many companies working on the site to know which one to hold responsible. It is important that construction site injury victims have their own legal team investigate the incident quickly, because you can be sure that once the incident is reported, the insurance company and the construction companies will immediately start working against you to gather its own evidence to claim you were responsible for causing your own injuries. Don’t let them make you a victim twice. After getting injured on a construction site, and before trying to handle it on your own, we recommend you Better Phone Stone. Since 2004 we’ve helped hundreds of construction accident injury victims like you get money for everything that was taken from them when they were legally on a construction site doing their job or minding their own business. We've seen how many ways workers compensation and commercial business insurance companies can bully injury victims. And when it's you against the insurance company, you need the experienced construction site legal team at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers to navigate the landmines and level the playing field.

POTENTIAL CAUSES OF

Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites tend to house a number of potential hazards that pose risks to worker safety. While some hazards are somewhat industry-specific, many worksites have more than one hazard present at a time.

Power tools and machinery

A construction site will often have various power tools and heavy machinery being used. Misuse or improper maintenance of these tools and machinery can result in serious injury.

 

Some power tools and machinery that pose great risk include:

 

  • Air compressors
  • Articulated and backend loaders
  • Backhoes
  • Bulldozers
  • Chainsaws
  • Circular saws
  • Compactors
  • Cranes
  • Excavators
  • Forklifts
  • Front-end loaders
  • Hydraulic excavators
  • Nail guns
  • Paving machines
  • Power drills
  • Road graders
  • Table saws
  • Trucks
  • Wood chippers

Falls

Hazards relating to fall protection, fall protection training, ladders, and scaffolding were all among the top 10 cited OSHA violations in the 2020 fiscal year. Clearly, construction accidents caused by falls continue to threaten the health and safety of construction workers.

Toxic substances

Toxic substances like asbestos and silica dust can be found on many construction sites. Over time, they can be extremely harmful, with effects sometimes showing up years after initial exposure.

 

Construction workers who may be exposed to dangerous substances on the construction site include:

  • Cement workers
  • Demolition workers
  • Drywall installers/removers
  • Electricians
  • Painters
  • Plumbers
  • Roofers
  • Sheet metal workers
  • Stonemasons
  • Stucco workers
  • Tile installers
  • Welders

Falling objects

Construction accidents from falling objects pose another risk to workers on a job site. Even a small, light object falling from a significant height can cause serious damage.

 

If materials, supplies, or debris are not properly secured, they can fall and hit a worker below. Overly heavy loads and faulty equipment can also increase the risk of a construction site accident.

 

Electrical current

When working with electricity directly or indirectly, there is always a risk of electrocution. Depending on the intensity of the current, it can affect the nervous system and cause long-term damage.

 

Certain jobs are more prone to construction accidents involving electrical current, such as:

 

 

  • Electrical installers
  • Electricians
  • HVAC engineers
  • Insulation workers
  • Powerline workers
  • Refrigeration mechanics

LEGAL OPTIONS AFTER A

Massachusetts Construction Accident

image 4
  • Know Your Rights As An Injured Worker

    It’s important to know your rights as an injured worker. Massachusetts law requires all employees to be covered by a workers’ compensation policy. In most cases, these benefits are available even if you were partially responsible for your own injury.

    Whether an injured worker is an employee, independent contractor, or subcontractor is not always clearly defined, but your status can affect your case. A member of our knowledgeable legal team can help answer any questions you have about your eligibility for workers’ comp.

    Your workers’ compensation benefits can cover your:

    • Medication costs
    • Hospital and ambulance bills
    • Surgical bills
    • Treatment and rehabilitation costs
    • Lost wages (66 percent of Massachusetts weekly average)

    In the case of scarring, disfigurement, or a loss of function, you may also be able to receive a lump-sum payment. Make sure, though, to be advised by a lawyer before you accept any lump-sum payment, to ensure that you are getting a fair amount.

    Before you can file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, you must be disabled for 5 full or partial days (consecutive or not) because of your work-related injury or illness. Otherwise, you can file for a medical-only claim to cover your medical bills, but not your lost wages.

  • Navigating the workers’ compensation appeals process

    Even though these benefits are in place to help injured workers, approximately half of workers’ comp claims are contested by the employer or insurance company. If your initial claim has been denied, one of the construction accident attorneys at our firm can help you file an appeal with the Massachusetts Department of Industrial Accidents (DIA.)

    There are four steps in the DIA’s dispute resolution process:

    1. Conciliation
    2. Conference
    3. Hearing
    4. Reviewing Board

    For each of these steps in the process, you can be sure that your employer’s insurance company has retained attorneys to protect their interests. Nevertheless, you have much less to fear when you work with one of the Massachusetts construction accident attorneys at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers. You can have the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a qualified, experienced lawyer on your side.

  • Filing a personal injury lawsuit

    Generally, an employee who has been injured at work is unable to file a personal injury lawsuit against his or her employer. But there are cases where someone else, perhaps another construction company, was at least partly responsible for the construction site accident and a third-party lawsuit can be filed.

    Third-party lawsuits are different from workers’ compensation claims. Two of the main differences is that third-party claims:

    • Can recover compensation for emotional damages, and;
    • Can compensate for 100 percent of lost wages and medical bills;

    When facing a lengthy recovery process, mounting financial burdens, and heavy emotional toll, adding a personal injury lawsuit to the mix can seem overwhelming. That’s where working with a construction accident attorney at our firm can help.

    As part of our Stone Cold Guarantee®, we get paid only after you get paid. We understand that you may not want to go to court, but sometimes this step becomes necessary. While our attorneys may be able to negotiate a fair settlement, we aren’t afraid to go to bat for our clients to recover the maximum compensation – whatever it takes.

    Each case is unique. In order to fully understand the legal options available to you, talk to a Massachusetts construction accident lawyer in a free consultation.
