Causes of Construction Accident Injuries

A construction company is responsible for protecting the safety of its employees. Managers need to inspect construction sites for potential dangers and provide employees with safety gear and functional equipment. This is particularly important for employees who work on scaffolding towers or rooftops.

Unfortunately, companies often cut safety corners when it comes to meeting deadlines, and a dangerous site leaves many opportunities for even safety-conscious employees to be injured. It’s not uncommon for a construction accident in Missouri to lead to personal injury and wrongful death claims.

Construction accident injuries are commonly caused by:

  • Falling objects
  • Electrocutions
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Machinery accidents
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Chemical spills

Your Legal Options

It’s important to hire a lawyer if you’re planning to file a personal injury claim or seek workers’ compensation benefits. In Missouri, any construction accident must first be handled by the state’s workers’ compensation program. However, workers’ compensation doesn’t always cover the extent of an employee’s medical requirements and financial needs.

At Buchanan, Williams, & O'Brien, P.C., our attorneys can help you navigate Missouri’s workers’ compensation program and negotiate with your employer’s insurance company to seek maximum financial aid. If your case necessitates a personal injury claim, our firm can assist you in pursuing maximum damages.
