Cedar Rapids Construction Slip and Fall Lawyers
Construction work, as most people are aware, is innately more dangerous than that performed in many other fields. The physical demands that it places on the bodies of those involved are tremendous. Since there is already so much physically taxing labor involved in construction, the introduction of any form of negligence on the part of a construction employer could be sufficient to warrant legal action. Slip and fall injuries are an all too common result of such negligence.
If you have been hurt on a construction site, then you may be eligible to file for workers’ compensation benefits or to seek financial compensation through a lawsuit. An experienced attorney can help you protect your legal rights when an employer fails to protect your health.
Consequences of a Slip and Fall Accident
The tendency may be to dismiss slip and fall accidents as minor because we mentally associate them with children falling and scraping their knees. But slip and fall accidents are a surprisingly common source of serious workplace injuries. On a construction site, differences in elevation and the prevalence of sharp or immovable fixed objects complicates an already delicate situation. Consequences of a slip and fall accident may include:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe lacerations and contusions
- Back injuries
- Fractured bones
We can help you ensure that your medical needs are met and that your family is provided for as you recover from the damage sustained in your workplace accident. Contact the Cedar Rapids construction slip and fall lawyers of Leehey Olson Law, P.C. at (319) 294-4424.
