Construction Site Injuries

While construction site safety has improved immensely in the past few decades, injuries are still prevalent. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and worker’s compensation have helped level the playing field for any injured construction workers. Unfortunately, OSHA standards are ignored and worker’s compensation is rarely enough to suffice financially.

At Galileo Law, we are well versed in construction site injury litigation and have helped many workers receive the compensation they deserve. Lead by Paul Veillon, we will work tirelessly to represent you to our fullest ability. Before you contact us for a free consultation, let us fill you in on common construction site injuries and how we can help you in your time of need.

Dangers of Construction Site Injuries

Construction is an inherently dangerous profession, but this doesn’t mean that safety isn’t a factor. OSHA standards have helped make construction sites safer but, unfortunately, some employers continue to neglect certain workplace precautions.

If you suffer a construction site injury, worker’s compensation can help you financially while you recover. While this is beneficial, it can be difficult to make ends meet on worker’s compensation alone. Worker’s compensation covers medical bills, partial time loss, and disability coverage, however, it does not cover pain or damage to a worker’s diminished quality of life. This is where we come in.

We’re Here to Help

While worker’s compensation helps, there are options beyond this that can help provide injured workers with improved financial stability. If you have been seriously injured on the job site, you cannot sue your employer, however, you do have the option to sue the company in charge of the worksite if proper safety measures were not met.

While safety on construction sites has improved, 1 in 5 workplace fatalities occur on construction sites. Falls, electrocution, and machinery malfunctions are the most common causes of these unfortunate losses and are often preventable. Whether you or a family member has suffered a construction site injury in Seattle, Galileo Law is here to help you every step of the way.
