How Can You Recover Compensation?

Construction workers are covered under Michigan's workers' compensation system. This system provides no-fault benefits to anyone who sustains a work-related injury. Your benefits could include lost wages replacement, coverage for medical care and more.

Construction workers might also be eligible to receive compensation by filing a third-party claim. This is available when a party other than your employer contributed to an injury. Common examples of third parties include contractors, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and negligent supervisors.

Ladder And Scaffolding Injury Lawyers Serving Kalamazoo And Grand Rapids

One of the most common causes of construction site injuries is falling from ladders and scaffolding equipment. These falls can result in significant injuries such as brain damage, back pain, broken bones, spinal cord complications and even death.

Common causes of these accidents include:

  • Inadequate training
  • Malfunctioning safety equipment such as harnesses or retractors
  • Unsecured ladders or scaffolds
  • Damaged scaffolds, including ones with broken guardrails, brackets or pins
  • Poor site preparation
  • Failing to perform adequate safety inspections

Construction companies are required to follow safety standards established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. These regulations are often brushed aside so a construction project can be completed on time and on budget. Our firm fights back against cost-cutting companies that ignore safety rules that are in place to protect workers against injury and death.
