Construction Accidents

Providing Legal Representation after Serious Construction Accidents in Indiana

There is no doubt that the construction industry is a dangerous one. Each day, construction workers put themselves at risk when they report to job sites that involve many hazards. Construction work is essential to our society and economy; however, so it is just a reality that construction accidents and injuries to workers will occur.

If you sustained injuries in a construction accident while on the job, you should learn about your rights to workers’ compensation benefits. Schedule a consultation with an experienced construction accident lawyer at Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock in Indiana today.

Common Construction Accidents

Many types of accidents can happen on construction sites and can result in life-changing or fatal injuries. Some common construction accidents include:

  • Falls from scaffolding, ladders, roofs, or other high places
  • Getting hit by falling or swinging objects
  • Power tool accidents
  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Electrical accidents and electrocution
  • Explosions and demolition accidents
  • Getting body parts caught in between materials

All of these accidents have the potential to result in serious injuries, including the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken or shattered bones
  • Crush injuries
  • Electrical injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries

Even with the right safety equipment and procedures, accidents can still happen in construction work. Sometimes, accidents are the result of a mistake, but other accidents cannot be avoided and are simply a risk of the job.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits After a Construction Accident

Like other employers, construction companies must carry workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance provides benefits for construction workers involved in injury-causing accidents. Benefits can cover:

  • Costs of medical treatment
  • Partial wage replacement for missed work
  • Disability payments
  • Death benefits 

After a construction accident, a worker should not have to be responsible for their own injury-related expenses. It is important to take the steps necessary to file a successful workers’ compensation claim as soon as possible to receive the benefits you deserve. 

Our workers’ compensation lawyers work closely with clients to prepare claims and handle the entire insurance process. Many injured construction workers are shocked when a claim is denied, or the insurer offers much less than the claimed losses. In this situation, having legal representation can help defend your claim while you keep focusing on your physical recovery from your injuries. 

Our legal team can also explore whether there was third-party liability for your accident that could result in additional compensation. We can handle both a workers’ compensation claim and a private insurance claim stemming from your injuries.
