The construction industry is one of the most dangerous fields a person can work in and many construction workers are injured or killed on the job every year in Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and Oxnard. The environments in which construction takes place can be very hazardous and there are many potential dangers that could lead to falls, crush injuries, and other serious types of harm.
Between high scaffolding, dangerous equipment, and the high amount of action that takes place on construction sites, it is no wonder that so many people end up getting injured. If you or a loved one has suffered any injury resulting from a construction accident, you will need to enlist the help of a personal injury lawyer to get you the care you need to recover both physically and financially.
Construction workers can be injured by the following:
The types of injuries commonly occurring in construction accidents include concussions, amputation of limbs and fingers, burns, chemical burns, broken bones, and skull fractures. Although the severity of injures can vary, it is best to speak with a personal injury attorney who will determine what can be done in your situation. Sometimes injured construction workers will pass off a minor injury as being insignificant when they really could be entitled to receive compensation, and a lawyer from our firm will examine your circumstances before deciding whether or not you have a legitimate case, and will then take the necessary legal actions on your behalf.
