    Common Causes of Construction Site Accidents

    Construction site accidents often occur due to hazardous conditions created by negligent employers or workers. These hazards include:

    • Scaffolding accidents
    • Crane collapse
    • Wet surfaces that cause slip and fall injuries
    • Unguarded edges
    • Falling from extreme heights or a roof
    • Negligent use of construction vehicles
    • Defective machinery or equipment
    • Electrocution
    • Chemical spills
    • Falling objects

    Following a Kentucky construction site accident, workers can file for workers’ compensation benefits, as employers cannot typically be held liable. However, personal injury lawsuits can be filed for injuries caused by third parties, such as defective machinery.

    Common Injuries on Construction Sites

    The consequences of construction site negligence can be devastating. The resulting injuries can be life-changing, and may include:

    These injuries are often serious and leave victims in severe pain. Some workers may also experience permanently disabling injuries or in some instances be fatally wounded.

    Compensation after a Construction Accident?

    In Kentucky, an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance will cover most construction employees when they are injured on the job site. These benefits can take care of medical bills, lost income while out of work, and other injury-related expenses. Nevertheless, there are times when valid claims for workers’ compensation are denied or the benefits are limited. When these issues arise, a construction accident attorney can assist with your claim to ensure you receive the benefit amount you are entitled to.

    Furthermore, when a third party is responsible, or at least partially at fault for a construction injury or death, victims have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit and pursue the at-fault party for damages. This legal action can include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related costs. Seeking the assistance of a Bowling Green personal injury lawyer can be crucial in these cases.
