Hazardous working conditions are a daily reality for construction workers. In 2014, there were 4,251 work-related fatalities, 20.5% of which were construction site deaths.
Construction workers include those involved in the welding, carpentry, electrical, and plumbing industries. Common incidents involve falls, equipment failure, falling objects, vehicle collisions, exposure to chemicals, contact with swinging objects, cranes, building collapse, explosions, and electrocutions.
Our legal team at Berry, Smith & Bartell, a Professional Law Corporation, can help you if you are a construction worker who has sustained an on-the-job injury. Don’t deal with legal and financial issues alone. We will do everything possible to ensure you receive the medical care coverage and lost wage reimbursement you deserve through workers’ compensation benefits.
Besides specific incident injuries (such as those sustained in falls), another common source of construction site harm are cumulative trauma injuries. Construction workers may experience bodily damage down the road as a result of outline lifting and twisting.
If you have lost a loved one in an on-the-job, construction accident we are also the legal team to speak with. If you are a dependent of the decedent, we will do everything we can to secure you death benefits that may include lost income support, funeral and burial expenses, and medical bills.
Because a construction workers’ compensation claim can be complex, it is extremely important that you partner with a qualified Fresno workers' compensation attorney. Our legal team has more than 130 years of combined experience and includes a former workers’ compensation judge.
