St. Louis Construction Injury Lawyer

Have you been injured in a construction site accident?

The construction field has the highest amount of deaths over all other industries. Recent studies show that there are over 400,000 construction related injuries and over 1,100 fatalities every year. The construction industry alone accounts for 1 out of every 5 workplace deaths. Construction sites are dangerous because of the nature of the work. Even with safety measures and procedures in place, these accidents occur on a regular basis. Some of the most common kinds of construction accidents are falls from roofs, scaffolds, ladders or cranes, being run over by heavy equipment, trench collapses, electrical and wiring accidents, explosions, fires, electrocution, welding accidents, being struck by falling objects, defective tools, and malfunctioning equipment.

When these accidents are serious, life as you know it may be changed forever. There may be spinal cord injuries, brain damage, paralysis, broken bones, necks and backs, paraplegia or quadriplegia. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a construction accident, it is crucial that you consult with a St. Louis personal injury attorney as soon as possible to advise you on what course of action to take.
