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 the 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 accounts 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 job site, 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.

5 / 5 stars
Mr. Cary, has been truly wonderful, not only was he very professional, Mr. Cary also cared about my recovery of 4 surgeries from a work injury. I consulted Mr. Cary when I was denied medical treatment from workman's comp from my employer. Anytime I had questions or concerns Mr. Cary and the staff was very friendly and helpful, no matter the situation or issues they handled it quickly. Mr. Cary made my first experience with an attorney or any kind of legal experience less stressful on myself. Mr. Cary took away any kind of worry I had and allowed me to recover with no worries.
