Legal Help with Workers’ Compensation for Construction Accidents in Greenville

South Carolina construction workers risk injuries every day ─ and some put their lives on the line. On-the-job injury is common in construction work, simply because it’s a high risk occupation. While state law requires workers’ compensation to cover construction accident injuries, victims often need legal help to receive the benefits to which they are entitled. The Mann Law Firm, P.A. can provide you with seasoned legal guidance.

What types of construction accidents are likely to happen?

According the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), four types of accidents, which OSHA calls the “fatal four,” top the list. Three out of five construction industry deaths in 2012 resulted from these causes:

  • Falls. Scaffolding, ladders and working at high altitudes make falls the greatest cause of deaths in the construction industry.
  • Struck by objects. Falling objects can strike workers and inflict serious injuries.
  • Electrocutions. Working with wires and electrical equipment and being exposed to power lines can result in electrocutions.
  • Caught in or between something. Injuries frequently occur when trenches or excavations collapse, equipment rolls over and workers use rotating equipment. Rigging accidents are also common.

What types of injures can you sustain in construction accidents?

Depending on what part of your body suffered injury and the degree of force involved, injuries can range from minor to serious, or even deadly. Serious injuries often involve one or more of the following:

  • Broken bones
  • Deep lacerations
  • Loss of fingers, arms or legs
  • Crushed limbs or bones
  • Severe burns
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Internal bleeding and organ damage

A serious head injury can prevent you from working and result in lost wages. You need time to recover. If disability results from your injury, a workers compensation attorney can prevent the insurance company or your employer from trying to deny, delay or reduce your benefits. Other issues can also arise, such as your boss deciding you should return to work before you’ve recovered or expecting you to do heavy physical work that is too difficult given your injured condition.

Putting a strong advocate on your side protects your rights.
