Working at a construction site can be incredibly dangerous and when accidents happen, the injuries can be severe, even fatal. At Maurer Law, our Charlotte construction accident lawyers are here to help you recover the compensation you are owed for your work injuries or your loved one’s death. We also represent those who are not construction workers but were injured at a construction site.North Carolina Construction Accident Victims May Have Multiple Avenues For Compensation
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), one out of every five worker deaths in the US is in the construction industry. One in every ten construction workers is injured each year. Common kinds of construction site accidents include:
- Fall accidents
- Getting hit by a falling or moving object
- Electrocution accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Chemical burns
- Exposure to hazardous or toxic substances
- Scaffolding accidents
- Trench collapses
- Machinery and equipment malfunctions or defects
- Accidents involving improperly trained operators
- Accidents caused by unsafe working conditions
- Repetitive motion injuries
Many North Carolina construction accidents, even when not deadly, can prove life-altering for the worker and their family. A spinal cord injury (SCI) that causes paralysis, a traumatic brain injury (TBI), severe burns, permanent disability or disfigurement, or other serious injuries can prevent a worker from ever returning to the job. Led by Charlotte construction injury lawyer Mike Maurer, we at Maurer Law are committed to pursuing all avenues of financial recovery for the victim and their family.Third Party Injury Claims For Charlotte Construction Workers
While North Carolina’s workers’ compensation laws require employers to provide injury and death benefits to employees and their families following a construction accident, which Maurer Law can also help you with, there may be other parties that can and should be held liable under the state’s personal injury and wrongful death laws. This may include the property owner of the construction site where the work accident happened, another company also involved with the project, a general contractor, the manufacturer or distributor of faulty equipment, and others.Former Insurance Defense Lawyer Now Representing The Injured And Their Families
