Construction Accidents

What is a Construction Accident Injury?

Construction work sites are fraught with dangers and the potential for serious and catastrophic injury. Injuries can be extremely serious due to the various large pieces of equipment and activities occurring on the work site. From cranes to welding to electrical wiring to trenching, there are many possible ways workers can be injured on a work site. Often Georgia construction workers who are seriously injured do not get the help they need from their employer or the entity for whom they are working on the site.

Reaching out to an experienced injury attorney after a serious construction accident can provide the support needed to secure workers’ compensation benefits and to recover against third parties who might be at fault. Georgia’s Charles Scholle has the compassion and experience with traumatic injury and wrongful death to provide the legal support needed after a tragic accident occurs on a construction site.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and safety rules and regulations are intended to ensure that safety precautions are taken on work sites to avoid accidents. OSHA reports that nearly 4,340 workers died on the job in 2009. That means accidents happen even when safety precautions are taken and particularly when required precautions are not taken. Death and injury can result in these hazard prone environments and that is tragic.

Despite the fact that most construction workers and those in skilled trades are aware of or trained for basic safety in the handling of machinery and dangerous materials, accidents are still possible. This can be due to defective machinery or tools and other hazards that occur on a construction site.
