    Injury Lawyer in Tummel Bridge

    Over 15 years of being in this business, our injury lawyer in Tummel Bridge team have dealt with various kinds of accidents. One particular accident that they have seen a lot of is construction site accidents. This is to be expected because as working environments go, few offer such a range of potential threats as a construction site. Accidents at work within this particular setting tend to have expensive consequences in terms of products, equipment and manpower.

    The most common construction site injuries are:

    • Head injuries: The wearing of hard hats is a must, but head injuries are still one of the most common construction site injuries, due largely to falling objects, materials or tools. This generally leads to concussion, fractures and brain trauma.
    • Spinal cord injuries: Falling from a roof, scaffolding or ladder are the most common ways in which workers can end up with serious spinal cord damage, leading to partial or even full paralysis and long-term disability.
    • Broken, fractured or crushed bones: Heavy machinery not secured properly or used incorrectly can lead to bones being fractured, broken or sometimes crushed.
    • Burns and scalding: There is always a likelihood of fires or explosions on a construction site, which can cause burns and scalding. Exposed electrical wiring, leaking pipes and dangerous chemicals all increase the risk of such accidents.
    • Cuts and lacerations: Poorly maintained or defective tools, exposed nails or screws, and unsecured machinery are just some of the causes of workers suffering cuts and lacerations. If not treated correctly, these can lead to infection.
    • Loss of hearing: Excessive noise from machinery such as a jackhammer is amongst the most common causes of injury on a construction site leading to hearing loss for a construction worker, especially if they do not use ear plugs or ear defenders.
    • Vision loss: Exposure or the improper handling to chemicals and gases are among the hazards which can lead to partial or full loss of sight.
