Fairfield Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction accidents often result in severe injuries. These sites house a variety of dangerous equipment and unstable structures, and construction workers often work in dangerous environments, such as at great heights. When accidents occur that result in serious injuries, accident victims can file a personal injury claim to secure compensation that can help with the cost of their injuries and other losses. Construction accident claims are extremely complex and one mistake can result in a forfeiture of any compensation at all. A Fairfield construction accident lawyer can help individuals secure the full amount of compensation they need.

Common Types of Construction Accidents

Accidents on construction sites can happen in a number of ways, and even involve many different parties. When managers, construction companies, and manufacturers are negligent, a number of different types of accidents can occur. The most common types of construction accidents include:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Struck by falling objects accidents
  • Fall accidents
  • Compressed gas accidents

All of these accidents result in severe injuries that are often life-changing. A construction accident attorney in Fairfield can help accident victims secure compensation that can help with their recovery.

Common Construction Accident Injuries

In many ways, there is no such thing as a ‘common’ construction accident injury because these injuries are so unique and a number of different injuries can occur in these hazardous places. Still, there are some injuries that are more common than others on construction sites. These include:

  • Deep cuts
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Crush injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Chemical burns
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Toxic substance exposure
  • Paralysis
  • Amputations

These are catastrophic injuries that often impact accident victims for the rest of their lives. They are not only painful, but also extremely costly to treat.

Damages Available in Construction Accident Cases

The damages available in construction accident cases will depend on the type of injury sustained, and the specific losses incurred. Still, there are a number of common types of damages awarded in these cases, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental distress
