Construction Accidents

Denver construction worker accident attorneys represent workers suffering from work-related injuries that occur on the job site.

The construction industry has one of the highest injury rates in any field. On any given worksite, workers are exposed to a high volume of dangerous equipment, machinery, and risky situations. A thousand things can wrong, and maintaining a safe construction site means more than just wearing a hard hat.

Construction accidents commonly occur from:

• Scaffold or ladder accidents
• Defective machinery and heavy equipment
• Falling objects
• Road work zone accidents
• Failure to implant guardrails or safety nets

If you or someone you know have suffered from an injury because of an accident that occurred in a construction area, then it is crucial to seek help from a trustworthy and experienced Colorado construction accident attorney immediately.

Workers’ Compensation

In most states, including Colorado, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover lost wages and medical bills for injured employees.

Common workers’ comp benefits for construction workers include:

• Medical expenses (including doctors’ appointments, therapy, medications, and surgeries)
• Wage loss benefits (known as temporary disability benefits)
• Disfigurement benefits (from scarring due to the injury or treatment)
• Permanent disability benefits (either partial or total)
• Death benefits

Construction Accident Liability

Determining which individual caused the accident is oftentimes extremely difficult in construction injuries, but also completely irrelevant. Regardless of who is at fault, if a worker is injured on a jobsite, their employer is obligated to compensate them according to Colorado law. Exceptions are very rare, and in the few cases they do show up, the worker would only lose a portion of their wage loss benefits.

Although liability is generally clear-cut, construction companies may try to escape their responsibility to provide just compensation as obligated under the law. In such cases, you will need a construction worker attorney who will hold them accountable.
