Construction Accident Injuries
Construction accidents can happen in a moment, yet the injuries sustained in these accidents can last a lifetime. Common construction accident injuries may be caused by falls, gas explosions, toxic exposure, electrical accidents or a variety of other factors, and may include:
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries/whiplash
- Severe burns
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
If you are injured on a construction site, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. In many cases, the full extent of construction site injuries is not immediately apparent, and failure to seek immediate medical help after a construction injury may reduce the value of a subsequent legal claim.

Construction Accident Causes
Carelessness, improper supervision, and failure to follow and enforce safety protocols are all common causes of construction site accidents. Other common factors that lead to construction site accidents include:
- Defective equipment
- Construction debris
- Poorly assembled scaffolding
- Unsafe ladders
- Holes in flooring
When a construction worker is injured on the job, that worker will likely need to miss a significant amount of work and may accumulate substantial medical debt. In some cases, an injured construction worker may require ongoing medical or therapeutic care, and some injured workers are never able to return to their chosen profession. While workers’ compensation settlements and personal insurance may help offset the costs associated with a major construction site injury, victims often experience financial hardship. By working with Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine construction accident lawyer Michael Bowser, injured construction workers can pursue just compensation for their damages, including medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
