Types of Construction Accidents
The types of accidents that occur at construction sites vary because each job site contains its own hazards and challenges. That said, there are things that are present at many different types of construction sites which could cause injury.
Many job site injuries can be caused by the following:
- Falls from ladders
- Falls from scaffolds
- Falls from other structures
- Heavy machinery
- Chemical exposure
- Repetitive motion
- Heavy lifting
Construction accidents have massive impacts on victims' lives and the lives of their families. Even minor injuries require treatment and recovery, and due to the physical nature of construction work, it may be some time before your doctor gives you permission to return to work. Construction accident victims and their families are faced not only with the task of recovering physically from the accident, but also with staying afloat financially.
Life after a Construction Accident
When a construction accident results in injuries that render the injured worker temporarily or permanently disabled, the accident victim may be looking at a painful and lengthy recovery and uncertainty surrounding the questions of whether they will be compensated for time that they had to take off of work because of their injury and whether and when they will be able to return to work. As recovery progresses, accident victims and their families may have to find new ways to earn money, and disabled accident victims may have to learn new ways to perform everyday tasks like bathing, dressing, and eating. Some workers may eventually be able to return to the same type of work that they were doing before the accident, while others may have to learn new skills and adapt to other types of work.
