For Rhode Island or Massachusetts Construction Site Injury, Call a Tough Work Comp Lawyer
If you are a carpenter, contractor, foreman, heavy equipment operator, mechanic, plumber, electrician, pipefitter, welder, cutter or painter, you know the construction industry is an extremely dangerous job. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction workers account for most job-related injuries and illnesses across the country. Construction site accidents occur every day in our area, from Providence and Newport to Fall River and Foxborough. As knowledgeable, compassionate Workers Compensation attorneys who have been helping injured workers in the Mt. Hope Bay region for over 30 years, we know that hazardous conditions take many forms:
- falls off ladders, scaffolding, ladders and roofs
- heavy lifting injuries
- broken back in 'stuck-between' accidents
- toxic exposure from chemical fumes
- spinal cord injury from building collapse
- crane, forklift and bulldozer accidents
- loader backhoes and excavators that tip over
- traumatic brain injury from falling objects
- defective power tool injuries
- hoisted loads breaking free and dropping
- faulty ropes, rigging or cables
- defective machinery accidents
- electrocution injuries
- welding arc flash blindness and burns
- hearing loss and eye injury
- construction site fatality
Construction Site Safety Violation Can Result in Devastating Injuries and Deaths
Hazardous safety violations and lack of protective gear-such as goggles, hard hats, steel-toed boots, insulated gloves and earplugs-can result in serious construction site injuries. Malfunctioning power tools and heavy equipment injuries are common as well, regardless of manufacturer-Kubota, Case, Black & Decker, DeWalt, Link-Belt, Caterpillar, Komatsu, Bobcat, Volvo or Makita. Because we know OSHA regulations inside and out, we also file third party claims against tool companies as well, if your injury was caused by their defective product.
