Construction Site Injuries: What You Should Know.

Construction sites are dangerous areas and it comes as no surprise that falls are the leading cause of fatalities and injuries in the construction industry. These falls can includes falls of high structures or scaffolds, but they can also include falls through unprotected holes or through flimsy and insufficient floor materials.

It is of course the responsibility of the contractor to make sure that all possible holes are marked off and that any possible safety precautions pertaining to these unprotected holes are followed. These safety standards must be enforced in order to ensure the safety of the workers and any persons on the site.

Not only must safety procedures be followed, but railings and fences should be present and always installed along with signs indication the holes location. When there are no railings, fences, or warning tape installed, the risk of possible injuries is greatly increased.

The failure to put in place warning devices or follow necessary safety precautions constitutes negligence on the part of the contractor. If this negligence causes harm, the injured party has a legal right to be compensated. for their damages.

Depending on the size of the construction site, relief from the harm caused by negligence may be sought from many different sources. An injured party may seek relief for their injury from the construction site owner himself, his general or subcontractors, and also any prime contractors. Regardless of the type of construction injury, consultation with an experienced attorney is a must so that the injury can be sought out and dealt with effectively.

Nurse Injures Back While Transferring A Patient

Ann worked as a nurse in the Emergency Room at a Boston hospital. While moving a patient from a bed to the operating room table, she felt an immediate pull in her back, left leg and left ankle.

She was diagnosed with sciatica and was given pain medication. She was advised to remain out of work. Anne was diagnosed with an L2-3-disc bulging, a broad central herniation at L3-4 and a broad disc bulging irritating the L3 nerve roots. She attempted to return to work, but was unable to continue her position as a registered nurse.

Nurse Connor was awarded long-term disability benefits and we were able to secure Social Security Disability benefits on her behalf. In light of the same, it made perfect sense to settle her workers compensation claim as she was suffering from a dollar for dollar offset of benefits between long-term disability, Social Security and workers compensation benefits. By eliminating the workers compensation benefit via a lump sum settlement, Nurse Connor was able to increase her monthly Social Security benefit and put away a nest egg for herself and family. We settled this workers compensation case and she received a significant amount of money.
