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.

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.

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.
Notable Verdicts & Settlements
Bad Faith Home Owner's Insurance
Drunk Driving Accident
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.
