According to the U.S. Department of Labor, one of every 15 construction workers will be injured on the job this year, not including the three American workers who die on an average day in this hazardous line of work. Sadly, the majority of these injuries and deaths are preventable through adherence to workplace safety laws and common sense precautions by employers.

Construction site accidents take many forms and are almost always unexpected. Falls from scaffolding, ladders and roofs are the most common causes of construction injuries encountered by victims at construction sites, but Montgomery, Chapin & Fetten, P.C. has handled many different types of building trades related construction accidents, factory accidents and maintenance related accidents.

These construction accidents often result in fractures, broken bones, amputations, back injury or paralysis, quadriplegia, closed head injury or brain damage, eye injuries, burns, electric shock injury, severe lacerations or disfigurement, nerve damage or pulmonary damage.
