Tatiana Boohoff Lawyer
North Port Construction Accident Attorney

For many of us, a visit to a North Port construction site may feel like one of the safest parts of our day. The layperson expects noisy and perhaps fairly dirty construction zones, of course, but they don’t anticipate an unsafe space. The construction industry should operate using stringent safety precautions and safety measures.

While construction sites should be maintained in a way that satisfies these requirements, not all of them do. Tack on the fact that even the safest construction site still might use heavy machinery, dangerous chemicals, or other potentially harmful equipment, and these stats probably won’t shock you:

  • One in ten construction workers are injured each year
  • As many as 150,000 construction site accident injuries occur each year
  • 15 percent of all workers’ compensation costs are spent on workers injured at construction sites

Construction site injuries are far from uncommon. The more you understand about how these events occur, the safer you’ll be during future visits; and if you’ve already experienced a North Port construction accident, you deserve a clear understanding of your right to compensation. That’s where Boohoff Law’s North Port injury accident lawyers can help.

Should I Hire a Construction Accident Attorney?

If you or a loved one were injured in a construction accident, consider contacting a qualified construction accident attorney. The laws and regulations that surround the construction industry are complex—and they aren’t always on the employees’ side. Rather than risking your case and heading to defend yourself blind, you can always opt to leverage the knowledge and experience of a seasoned legal professional. Boohoff Law’s team of qualified personal injury attorneys understand your position. You deserve recognition and lawful compensation for the losses that you have endured. Whether your damages were physical, emotional, or monetary, our construction accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue the compensation that you deserve. Contact us today to find out more and schedule a FREE initial consultation.

Common Causes of Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites are hectic and dangerous places. Unfortunately, employees and site visitors alike face tremendous risk once they set foot onsite. Unique risks and dangers often only present themselves in these settings. Lack of fall protection is one such risk. Every year, employees working diligently on elevated structures fall due to inadequate protection. These falls can lead to lacerations, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, and even death. Those on the ground don’t fare much better—in fact, they don’t have ample protection from falling objects. Other factors also place employees and site visitors at risk, so maintain situational awareness in these environments. If you plan to spend time at a construction site, watch for:

  • Tripping hazards | Construction requires an excess of materials and creates a wealth of debris. All of these pose tripping hazards
  • Missing or inadequate power tool protection
  • Otherwise unsafe equipment
  • Lack of safety precautions when performing specialized work (such as safety line work)

What Compensation Am I Eligible For?

Construction accident victims may be eligible to receive compensation for damages. The amount of compensation that you are offered parallels the damages that you report experiencing due to the accident. The most commonly and easily awarded portions of financial compensation are generally associated with direct and tangible financial loss, via a workers’ compensation claim.

Third-Party Liability

The concept of third-party liability comes into play in a sizable portion of construction accident cases. This is because many of the circumstances that lead to injury in construction sites can be attributed to outside parties involved in the project. A construction accident case may target site owners, architects, equipment manufacturers, or contractors. Contractors, for example, are legally responsible for providing ample safety provisions based on the work that they perform on-site. They must:

  • Notify those present of possible safety hazards on-site
  • Intentionally hire employees who will exercise caution while working
  • Coordinate anything concerning job safety
  • Ensure that all safety specifications are followed

Another easy example of this can be seen in equipment manufacturers. These organizations are held responsible for ensuring that their products’ designs are safe. They must also verify that their actual manufactured products are safe. If somebody on a construction site employs appropriates safety measures and still sustains injuries due to defective or otherwise questionable machinery, the manufacturer of that equipment could be held liable.

What About Workers’ Compensation?

Your personal injury attorney can assist in your pursuit of workers’ compensation following a construction accident. Most construction employees understand that they have access to this resource, but some feel uncertainty regarding how to pursue payments. Employees’ rights in this sphere are limited—victims should keep in mind that they may not sue their employers for on-the-job injuries. Workers’ compensation payments also do not account for all of the damages that victims suffer. On the other hand, they don’t need to prove negligence on the part of their employers to secure compensation. A construction accident lawyer can help you with your claim and improve your chances of securing the settlement you deserve. Workers’ compensation is intended to assist employees who are injured on the job. That means that if you were injured on a construction site and were not performing construction work at the time, you are not eligible to receive workers’ compensation.
