An attorney can help determine if the construction company or someone else owes you money for your injuries. Contact a compassionate workers’ compensation attorney to discuss your legal claim in more detail. En Español.

Are Companies Required to Protect Workers?

The Colorado legislature has enacted many laws intended to protect construction workers. State law requires construction companies to have every project professionally inspected. Because many job sites involve the use of scaffolding, companies and their agents are also required to provide workers with protective devices such as harnesses to avoid falls.

Companies must additionally take reasonable actions to prevent falling object accidents from injuring workers. These are just a few examples of what construction accident attorneys have seen of the many measures construction companies, property owners, and site managers must follow to protect workers on Denver job sites.

Construction Accident Injuries

Construction sites are inherently dangerous, which is why state law imposes so many safety regulations on companies, project managers, and site supervisors. Construction companies are required to follow safety regulations, but unfortunately, they sometimes disregard these laws. When construction companies and their agents fail to follow safety regulations, workers are at risk for injury. Tragically, construction accidents often lead to debilitating injuries for the accident victim.

Effects of Unsafe Worksites

Workers that have sustained an injury in a worksite accident due to an unsafe work site should call a Denver construction accident attorney as soon as possible. Injured construction workers may be entitled to financial compensation, or be eligible for a worker’s compensation claim. A company’s failure to obey the law can lead to serious injuries or even death for workers on a construction site.

Some common types of construction site injuries include:

Pursue Financial Compensation with the Help of a Denver Construction Accident Attorney

Suffering such serious injuries as those listed above can be both physically and financially disastrous. Losing wages and paying medical bills due to an accident can seriously affect an injured worker’s financial stability.

When a construction company (or their agents or subcontractors) fail to follow safety regulations, and their failure causes an injury, the accident victim can sue. Often, injured construction site workers sue for financial compensation related to their medical costs and lost wages.

A construction accident attorney can help an injured victim sue the responsible party in court. Lawyers can also help an eligible injured victim pursue a workers’ compensation claim under the construction company’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. A Denver construction accident lawyer can work hard to try getting you the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and other injury-related costs. Call us today to learn more.
