Utah Construction Accidents
Between these top 10 Utah construction companies alone, almost 10,000 Utahns are employed in construction. This is certainly a positive thing, but unfortunately there are also consequences. The hard truth is that more construction generally means more construction accidents.
Though successful, these top 10 Utah construction companies are not exempt from job site accidents and injuries. Similar to any construction environment, workers employed by these companies operate under dangerous conditions on a daily basis, and severe injuries are likely to occur. Some of the dangers present on a typical construction site include:
- Large vehicles carrying heavy equipment
- Tall heights
- Flammable and explosive material
- Extremely heavy objects
- Electrical systems
- Slippery areas
- Reckless vehicles driving through construction zones
- Long term effects of noise, chemical exposure, asbestos, etc.
Due to the dangerous nature of these conditions, accidents and injuries that result from them are often catastrophic, debilitating, and even deadly. Expensive medical costs and lost wages may leave you wondering how you will recover.
Though workers’ compensation benefits are available to you in the case of a workplace injury, they may not be enough to cover the overwhelming costs you may face. In some situations it may only cover only 60% or less of what you need to make a full recovery and pay your bills.
However, if you have been involved in a Utah construction accident where a third party contractor or subcontractor was at fault, you could be eligible to file a personal injury claim. Separate from workers’ compensation, a successful personal injury claim can help you pay for the full cost of your recovery, as well as compensate you for:
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Future medical bills
- Other necessary expenses related to your injury
Simply put, if you have sustained a severe work-related construction injury, workers’ comp is not necessarily your only option. For more information, visit our page that provides general information about construction accident cases.
