It is understood that construction sites contain many risks, especially for the people who are working around them. That is why it is vital for everyone, from employers to workers, to maintain professional safety standards at all times.

Unfortunately, there are times when the negligence of another person, or the company, can cause you harm. When that happens, you need to know where to turn. At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we want to help you secure the compensation you need in the aftermath of an incident. When you need a Bellevue construction site accident attorney, you can call us today.

The Industry Dangers

The women and men who work in the construction industry know that there are dangers they face when they go to work each day. We only have to look at some of the most common causes of fatalities in construction to see some of the dangers:

  • Falls (38.7 percent)
  • Getting struck by an object (9.4 percent)
  • Electrocutions (8.3 percent)
  • Getting caught in between objects (7.3 percent)

Of course, there are many more who work in construction who are not killed and have to live with the outcomes of their injuries. We commonly see the following injuries in construction:

Some of these injuries occur due to immediate causes, meaning that it is pretty obvious that they are work injuries. Others, like respiratory and repetitive stress injuries, happen over longer periods of time and are not as easily traceable to a work-related cause.

Construction companies are the first line of defense for their workers. This means that they need to ensure the everyone has the proper gear and equipment needed for the work involved and that everyone is adequately trained.

Non-Worker Injuries

Most of the time, non-workers are not allowed on or around construction sites. It is up to the company responsible for the site to properly secure the area so it is not easily accessible. If they fail to do this and people do enter the construction site, they could be held liable if someone gets hurt.

Many times, children will explore construction sites and get hurt. If a company had done their job properly, the children would not have had access to the site.

After An Incident

While you may think you can handle this situation on your own, there is a good chance that insurance companies will not offer enough money to cover all of your accident-related expenses. They will make you think you are getting the best amount possible, but that likely is not true. At Russell & Hill, PLLC, our knowledgeable and experienced team will work to ensure that you get all of the money you deserve. This can include:

  • Coverage for medical expenses
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Possible punitive damages
