Common Types of Construction Accidents
Working in the construction industry presents a number of different potential hazards, all of which your employer should be prepared for. When they fail to look out for your safety, it can lead to extremely painful and catastrophic injuries.
A few of the most common types of construction accidents include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Negligent contractors
- Falls from scaffolding
- Explosions and fires
- Crane accidents
Third Party Claim vs. Workers Compensation
Typically in workplace accidents, your employer is required to compensate you through workers' compensation. However, if a third party was involved in your accident, such as a crane which injured you due to defective manufacturing, we may be able to file a third-party personal injury claim.
Fighting with Insurance Companies So You Don't Have To
One of the most frustrating elements of suffering a workplace injury, especially a construction injury, is having to deal with the insurance companies. Your employer's insurance company may try to deny your claim or offer you an unfair settlement. Meanwhile, as the bills pile up, your medical insurance may try to get out of paying your bills. Whatever the case may be, you can rely on our Teaneck construction injury attorneys to take care of the insurance companies so you can focus on recovery.
