Fighting for Victims of Construction Accidents

St. Louis Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction Injury and Death Statistics

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, according to statistics provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. 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 include:

  • Falls from roofs, scaffolds, ladders or cranes
  • Being run over by heavy equipment
  • Trench collapse
  • Electrical and wiring accidents including electrocution
  • Explosions
  • Fires
  • Forklift accidents
  • Welding accidents
  • Being struck by falling objects
  • Crane accidents
  • Defective tools and malfunctioning equipment

If you or a loved one has been involved in a construction accident, life as you know it may be changed forever. Accidents on construction sites frequently leave the victim with brain damage, broken bones and paralyzing spinal cord injuries such as paraplegia or quadriplegia. It is in your best interests to consult with a construction accident attorney from our firm as early as possible after the accident, to discuss your legal options and learn how much you could stand to receive in an insurance settlement or jury verdict.

Compensation for Your Injuries

You are most likely entitled to file a claim for workers' compensation, since most employers are required by Missouri state law to carry this type of no-fault insurance coverage. Unfortunately, workers' comp insurance companies often do not award you adequate compensation to cover all of your needs, including your medical bills, disability, lost wages and rehabilitative costs.

For example, workers' comp benefits for lost wages are typically paid at a rate of only two-thirds of the beneficiary's average weekly wages. Let us investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine whether there may be any additional sources of compensation available to you. That there may be third parties such as the construction manager, property owner, or general contractor who, in addition to your employer, may be liable for your injuries.

Call us at (800) 391-4318 for your free consultation.

With help from our experienced construction accident lawyers in St. Louis, you may be able to recover sufficient compensation to cover all your losses and make it possible for you to move forward in your life.
