Options are available to injured construction workers

The construction industry is a consistently dangerous industry for workers, and the construction industry is one of the most dangerous in North Carolina. Throughout the state, thousands of construction workers are injured on job sites each year. A number of different types of serious injuries can be suffered by construction workers, including serious head and back injuries.

Common construction accident types include falls and equipment-related injuries. In addition to suffering work-site related injuries, construction workers may also suffer injuries in a car or other motor vehicle accident related to a construction project they are working on. Different types of construction workers may also suffer harm, including carpenters, roofers, tilers and others.

Injured construction workers have a number of different options to consider for help. Workers' compensation is available to assist with medical costs and lost earnings. Furthermore, other types of benefits may also be available in certain situations. Workers also have options to appeal a workers' compensation or other claim that has been denied.

While workers' compensation laws prevent an employee from separately seeking compensation from their employer for the harm they have suffered in a work accident, they may be able to seek compensation from third parties liable for the harm. When the negligence of a property owner, product manufacturer, subcontractor or other party has caused a construction worker to suffer injury or harm on a construction site, the third party may be liable for the construction worker's damages.

At Ganley and Ramer, we know that there are a number of different types of construction accidents that construction workers may be involved in. The website for our Asheville-based firm contains helpful information about the variety of options that are also available to construction workers to ensure that they are fully compensated when harmed while on the job.
