Workers' Compensation After A Construction Accident

Similar to manufacturing and warehouse work, the construction industry presents workers with numerous risks for injury due to the dangerous nature of the work and job site. Like virtually every other profession, construction workers are entitled to workers' compensation coverage after sustaining injury.

Throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota, our attorneys help construction workers pursue just compensation through workers' comp, personal injury and even Social Security Disability claims. As a local firm over 100 years of experience, our record of success speaks to our understanding of what it takes to properly file a claim and fight for justice on behalf of our clients.

Construction Accident Causes

Construction work is inherently dangerous. However, that doesn't mean employers and employees are not accountable for providing the safest possible work environment. Whether you were hurt while working on a small project or a major commercial project, we can explain your rights and guide you through the entire workers' comp process as you recover. In addition to a workers' compensation claim, you may have a claim against another construction worker's employer, or its insurance company.

Construction accidents vary greatly, but a few common cases we see include:

  • Falling materials
  • Scaffolding accidents and ladder falls
  • Electrical accidents such as shocks and burns
  • Exposure to harmful chemicals
  • Burns
  • Explosions
  • Crane and other tool or machinery-related accidents
  • Injuries resulting from the use of power tools
