Unexpected Dangers of Construction
Construction accidents are a large cause of injured worker claims in the United States and can be extremely expensive to treat and recover from. When a construction worker is injured on-site while performing his regular job duties, he may be eligible for workers’ compensation to help supplement the possible loss of income and associated medical bills. However, sometimes workers’ compensation companies can be difficult to negotiate with and the legal experience of a workers’ comp attorney can make a big difference in a worker’s ability to get the compensation that he needs.

Common Construction Accidents
The construction business has inherent dangers associated with it, but this doesn’t mean that workers shouldn’t be compensated for unexpected injuries on the job. Some of the most common construction accidents that may entitle an injured worker to receive compensation include:
- Equipment Malfunction/Defect
- Slips and Falls
- Lifting Injuries
- Wrongful Death
These are five of the most commonly reported construction accidents, though construction sites can cause a much greater variety of danger than what is listed here. No matter your injury, you may be able to seek workers’ compensation benefits.
