Workers' Compensation For Injured Construction Workers

In 2002, the Bureau of Labor Statistics accumulated data to determine the 10 most dangerous jobs in America. Not surprisingly, four of those jobs were in the construction industry. Hazardous work conditions are a given in this occupation, with workers regularly exposed to dangerous or toxic materials, extreme heights, repetitive motion and powerful equipment. It is the responsibility of construction companies, equipment manufacturers and contractors to ensure the safety of construction workers is the highest priority at all times. Unfortunately, even in today’s very safe workplace, construction accidents can lead to dire physical and financial hardship, and even the wrongful death of workers. The attorneys at Law Offices of Cliff Enten, with offices serving Denver, Colorado Springs and all of Colorado, have decades of experience representing victims of construction accidents.

Common Causes Of Construction Accidents

Led by Cliff Enten, the lawyers at Law Offices of Cliff Enten are familiar with all types and causes of construction accidents, and they can help injured workers recover compensation for permanent partial disability, permanent total disability medical expenses, loss of wages and other valuable claims. According to our attorneys, the main types of injury-causing construction accidents are electrical accidents; falls from ladders, buildings, or scaffolding; and equipment and debris-related accidents involving workers or bystanders.

Who Is Liable For Construction Accidents?

There are a number of parties who can be held liable for construction accidents. When a worker causes personal injury to another party through his or her own negligence, that worker can be held legally and financially responsible. Contractors and supervisors are responsible for the safety of workers and bystanders at all times. In some cases, the owner of the construction site may be liable for harm to workers or bystanders. If, for example, a pedestrian is injured by falling debris or trips over an uneven surface, he or she may collect compensation from the owner of the site under premises liability laws. If a worker or bystander is hurt as the result of faulty equipment, the manufacturer of that equipment may be held responsible under product liability laws.
