Raleigh Construction Accident Lawyer for Work Injuries in NC

Meta description: If you have suffered injuries from a construction site accident, you should speak with a Raleigh construction accident lawyer at Martin & Jones for information about your rights.

Construction Site Attorney for Accidents Throughout North Carolina

Every year, thousands of workers are seriously injured or killed while working on construction sites. Unfortunately, many injury victims — and surviving family members of those who suffered fatal injuries — fail to receive just compensation. Due to the legal complexities associated with construction accidents, seek the assistance of a Raleigh construction accident lawyer if you were injured at work.

Common Hazards of Construction Site Jobs Outlined by a Raleigh Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction workers regularly confront significant hazards on the job. They are required to lift heavy objects, work at dangerous heights, operate or be in the vicinity of heavy machinery and implements, and work with all sorts of materials that potentially put them in harm’s way. For example, a worker on a construction site might become injured or even killed by:

  • A dangerous fall
  • Being in the way of falling materials or debris
  • Falling scaffoldings
  • Hazardous machinery
  • Working with heavy materials
  • Being exposed to toxic materials
  • Working in a manner that requires repetitive motion
  • Faulty electrical equipment or wires

The following is a list of common types of injuries that happen on construction sites. If you or a loved one have experienced any of these injuries, you should contact a Raleigh construction accident lawyer to learn about your legal rights.

  • Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Electrical burns and electrocution
  • Back injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Puncture wounds
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

The stress that can accompany a hazardous construction job should not be underestimated. Often, severe mental and emotional conditions can result from the pressures of working at a construction site.

Am I Entitled to Workers’ Compensation Benefits if I was Injured at a Construction Site?

If you have been injured in an accident while working at a construction job or while visiting a construction site during work, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation benefits. 

As a general rule, all employees in North Carolina (with limited exceptions) are covered under workers’ compensation. This means that even if you are a temporary, seasonal, or part-time worker, you should be covered. Undocumented workers are covered under the law, as are most independent contractors. While a Raleigh construction accident lawyer will be able to assess your eligibility in your particular case, chances are good that if you are a construction worker that was injured on a construction site, you have the right to file for benefits under North Carolina’s workers’ compensation law.
