These construction site injuries are serious and require care

It can be exciting to work in the construction industry, as you never know what each day will bring. However, you should never lose sight of the many potential accidents that could cause serious injury or even death in these workplaces.

Regardless of how hard you try, there's no way to completely eliminate the risk of a construction site accident. These accidents happen time after time, often resulting in the following injuries:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Burns and electrocutions
  • Lacerations and cuts
  • Eye and ear injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Ankle, knee and shoulder injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries, such as paralysis
  • Toxic exposure to chemicals

You never know if you'll be part of an accident that results in injury or death. For example, if you fall from a height, such as when working on a roof, it's hard to avoid injury.

If you are part of a construction site accident, do the following:

  • Call for help or have someone do so on your behalf.
  • Get immediate medical attention until help arrives.
  • Report the accident to your employer, making sure they know what went wrong.
  • Learn more about the impact of your injury on your future.

If you find that you're unable to return to work in the near future, you'll need to learn more about your right to workers' compensation. It's possible that you can receive benefits until you can return to your job. If you are denied workers' compensation, find out about the appeals process. You don't want to miss out on money that's due to you.
