Construction Accidents

Quincy Construction Accident Attorneys

Dedicated Representation for Severely Injured Workers & Their Families

It goes without saying that construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces. Heavy machinery, exposure to hazardous materials, risky heights, explosives, and sharp tools are just some of the things construction workers encounter on a daily basis. In fact, employees in Massachusetts’ construction industry have the highest rate of work-related injuries in the entire state.

But, just because you are aware of the dangers involved with working on a construction site does not mean you give up all your legal rights if an accident happens. It’s important to know your legal rights as a construction worker since you may be entitled to workers' compensation if you are injured while on the job.

Types of Workplace Construction Accidents

Some of the most common types of construction accidents include:

  • Motorized equipment/vehicle accidents involving cranes, forklifts, front-end loaders, and trucks
  • Crush accidents involving steel beams, large pipes, concrete pillars, and heavy loads falling or shifting
  • Cave-in accidents involving working below ground level in trenches and unstable soil collapse
  • Tool accidents involving nail guns, power drills, and saws
  • Ladders and scaffolding accidents involving falls and slips from high heights, unsteady ladders, and faulty scaffolding

Common Construction Site Injuries

Injuries that result from construction accidents can be tragic and life changing. These injuries include:

Employer Responsibility

The hardest part in a construction accident workers’ compensation case is determining who is actually liable. This is because construction sites have so many employers, ranging from engineers to subcontractors, product manufacturers to architects.
