What Types of Compensation Are Available in a Construction Accident Claim?
If you suffer an injury while working on a construction site, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits that pay for your medical bills and a portion of your salary while you recover. You do not need to prove fault in order to claim benefits.
However, if your injury was caused by a third party such as a general contractor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, property owner, or architect, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. A personal injury claim can help you recover both economic and noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Common types of construction site accidents include:
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Falls from heights
- Falling objects
- Electrical accidents
- Chemical exposure and spills
- Burns and explosions
