About Alabama Construction Accidents

Construction is widely recognized as being one of the most dangerous industries in the country. For example, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that 17% of all workplace fatalities in the country in 2010 occurred on construction site. The number of construction deaths is, however, on the decrease thanks in large part to safety campaigns such as OSHA's Worker Safety Series.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 1,016 fatal construction deaths in 2008, followed by 879 in 2009, 802 in 2010 and 759 in 2011. The most common types of fatal construction accidents have been dubbed by OSHA as being the "Fatal Four," a group which account for three out of five deaths in the construction industry. These include falls, electrocution, being struck by objects and being stuck in between objects or machinery.

Legal Options for Injured Construction Workers

Most companies in Alabama are required by state law to carry workers' compensation to cover their employees in the event of an accident on the jobsite, so there is a good chance that you are entitled to file a claim for benefits. Unfortunately, workers' comp generally only pays at a rate of two-thirds of the worker's normal wages, so even if your claim is approved you could be facing considerable financial hardship.

You may have another option. If it can be proven that your accident was caused, or contributed to, by another person, you could have grounds for a personal injury claim. This could be a sub-contractor, a property owner or even the manufacturer of defective equipment. Bring the case to us today to discuss the accident and find out more about your options.
