Construction Site Work Injuries In North Carolina

Board-Certified Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, three in every 100 construction workers are injured on the job each year. Sadly, approximately more than 1,000 construction workers are involved in fatal job site accidents each year as well, making construction work one of the most dangerous occupations in the country. It’s crucial for anyone who works in construction to know what kind of injuries are most common, what right they have if they are injured, and when to contact a North Carolina workers’ compensation lawyer for assistance.

Most Common Construction Site Injuries

A career in construction can be rewarding in many ways. However, workers face many hazards on construction sites. Some of the most common injuries are the result of:

  • Falls from the same level or from elevation
  • Objects falling from above
  • Accidents involving large trucks
  • Equipment malfunction or misuse
  • Fire
  • Collapsing structures
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Overexertion

These hazards can cause fatalities, permanent disabilities, or severe injuries. Some injuries that come from these include: 

  • Loss of limbs
  • Spinal injuries, including paralysis
  • Burns and electrocution
  • Cuts, which can lead to blood loss
  • Eye and ear injuries, sometimes causing loss of vision or hearing
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Emotional suffering, including PTSD

 Many common construction site injuries require workers to take time away from work to recover. Some workers may never be able to return to construction work again, or they may need transfers to different types of work within the company.

Rights for Injured Construction Workers

 

If you are a construction worker and injured on the job, you should have workers’ compensation benefits. However, the employer and/or the insurance company that pays for the benefits may fight you tooth and nail as you try to get your benefits. Don’t let them bully you into giving up your rights. 

 

In North Carolina, injured workers have the rights to: 

 

  • Retain their jobs
  • Negotiate with the insurance company until they sign the documents
  • See a doctor that isn’t the company’s physician
  • Stay away from work until a doctor approves their return
  • Privacy in their homes

 

 Simply knowing these rights can help. However, you may need additional help fighting for your rights.

 

Why Hire a North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

 

The insurance business involves paying out as little as possible in benefits. These companies often have many tools at their disposal to get out of paying workers the benefits they deserve. Similarly, your employer may try to force you out or otherwise violate your rights. For these reasons, you need an experienced and tough North Carolina workers’ compensation lawyer on your side after any workplace injury.

 

Some construction site work injuries are complete accidents, while others would have been avoidable were it not for employer negligence. In some cases, hiring the right attorney can ensure you not only get all the workers’ compensation rights you deserve, but also any liability settlements that may be available.
