Indiana Construction Accident Lawyer

Updated: December 4, 2012

In the United States, construction is a very large industry. It is also a high-risk industry. It ranks third in the rate of injury caused deaths, following mining and agriculture. For every 100,000 workers, 15 die due to injury.

What Are Some Common Hazards?

Some construction site hazards that result in death or serious injury are:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falling from a high location
  • Motor vehicle crashes
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Forklift injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Machinery Accidents
  • Being hit by falling items

Get Your Fair Compensation!

No matter how stringent the safety standards are regarding construction, all construction laborers are at risk every day while on the job. Workers’ compensation does benefit the injured, but it does not sufficiently compensate employees who have been hurt on the job.

Contact a skilled construction accident attorney at the Law Offices of Gerald L. Cowan to discuss your case. Our lawyers are compassionate about helping innocent people who have been injured due to the negligence of others. We can help you receive workers’ compensation benefits, pain and suffering, future wage loss, and the reimbursement of medical expenses.
