Construction Accidents

Colorado Personal Injury Attorney

The construction industry employs more than 6.4 million people every year to build cities, homes, schools, bridges and roadways. These jobs are extremely physical and often very dangerous. In 2007 alone,  more than 1,100 construction workers were killed on the job and 135,350 were injured. These injuries are often severe and life threatening. If they are not treated quickly, these injuries may lead to permanent disabilities that can prevent victims from working, maintaining an independent lifestyle and enjoying life to the fullest. Construction workers use heavy machinery and dangerous power tools on a regular basis. Yet even when adequately trained, accidents still unfortunately happen. Defective parts, improperly maintained equipment and dangerous working conditions can cause serious construction accidents and lead to permanent disabilities. While there are an infinite number of ways a construction worker can be injured while on the job site,  the most common types of construction accidents are:
  • Falls off of scaffolding
  • Electrocution
  • Asphyxiation
  • Soft tissue injuries from lifting
  • Repetitive Stress Disorders (carpal tunnel)
  • Exposure to asbestos or other chemicals
  • Forklift accidents
  • Injuries from falling objects (such as steel beams or wooden planks)
  • Severe lacerations or limb loss from power tools
  • Falling off of ladders
  • Head Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
If you are injured in a construction accident, Colorado law is on your side. Construction companies have a responsibility to comply with federal and state safety regulations. In addition, they must comply with Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) regulations. If the construction company or management team failed to comply with these regulations in any way, they can be held liable for any accidents and injuries that have occurred. When this occurs, you will need an experienced and aggressive Colorado construction accident attorney on your side to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. Colorado Car Accident Law Firm
