Helping Injured People Get Back on Their Feet
By nature, construction work is inherently risky; sites are typically filled with dangerous heavy equipment, unwieldy materials, and toxic chemicals. Construction workers who are injured in on-the-job accidents have the right to file for workers’ compensation benefits. An experienced attorney can help pursue the maximum amount of compensation available and fight against insurance companies who deny or underpay claims. If you have been injured in a construction accident, contact attorney J. Todd Tenge, serving Boulder, Denver, and Fort Collins, for more information.
Types of Construction Accidents
Laborers on a construction site are vulnerable to injury due to the following workplace hazards:
- Falling objects
- Slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls
- Electrical burns
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Fall from heights
- Heavy equipment injuries
Construction sites are subject to strict safety regulations by the Colorado division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). If a property owner or construction company fails to comply with OSHA standards, it may increase the risk of a serious accident. Other factors that may lead to construction accidents are defective pieces of equipment, inadequately trained workers, human error, and lapses in safety checks or procedures.
Common Construction Accident Injuries
Attorney J. Todd Tenge represents construction workers who suffer any kind of serious injury on the job, including:
- Broken bones, bruises, sprains, or lacerations
- Orthopedic injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
If You’ve Been Injured in a Construction Accident
If you injure yourself in a construction accident or other type of workplace accident, you may file a workers’ compensation claim to solicit damages for your losses. Workers’ compensation benefits can reimburse you for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to your injury.
It’s a good idea to hire legal representation after a workplace accident for several reasons. First, an attorney can handle the details of your claim while you focus on recovering and getting back on your feet. Second, a personal injury attorney experienced with personal injury and workers’ compensation claims will be familiar with how to determine the appropriate amount of money you are owed. Our construction accident attorneys will take on even the most powerful corporations and insurance companies who deny or underpay workers’ compensation claims, and will fight for your right to collect your rightful benefits.
Also, if you believe that gross negligence contributed to your injury and you may have a valid personal injury claim against the responsible party, our legal team can help you explore this option.
