Construction Accident

Everyday, workers on Washington’s construction sites must handle dangerous tools and equipment while working under very hazardous conditions, including working at great heights, alongside busy roads and highways, and outside in volatile climates.

When site owners and general construction sites fail to adequately prepare a work site for every safety contingency, injuries and fatal deaths are often the grim result. Large and small road improvements and building projects are underway in many parts of north Spokane Washington, especially in smaller growth areas like Liberty Lake, Airway Heights, Mead and Cheney. The number, rate and severity of construction site accidents are also on the rise.

With the many risks involved in construction work it’s not surprising that this type of work accounts for a larger percentage of labor and industry claims than any other profession. But in many of these cases, Washington’s workers’ compensation laws simply don’t provide ample compensation to cover the full needs of severely injured construction workers. While WashingtonLabor and industry does provide a short-term stream of income to the injured worker, many labor laws have fixed time limits and compensation levels for specific injuries.

For instance, a long-term leg disability may get you $75,000, given to you on a weekly basis over five years. While it’s better than nothing, labor and industries doesn’t provide compensation for the extenuating circumstances that often accompany severe injury – such as pain and suffering and the loss of quality of life. Accepting workers compensation often prevents an employee from suing responsible parties for other circumstances surrounding the injury.

In a profession where the potential for severe and violent accidents is everywhere, some of the most catastrophic forms of injury and death occur as a result of falls from roofs, crane and heavy equipment accidents, scaffolding collapses, structural cave-ins, electrocution, fires and explosions, compressed and natural gas explosions from underground pipes and cables, mining accidents, logging accidents and welding accidents. The resulting injuries can include third degree burns, paralysis from spinal cord injuries, de-gloving injuries, brain injuries, amputation and severe fractures. Because construction workers often perform demolition work on older buildings, they are also the most common victims of toxic exposure to dangerous substances, such as asbestos. These types of life-lasting injuries and illnesses aren’t adequately covered by labor and industry law, and a worker has a right to investigate an accident in an effort to understand every cause of his or her injury.
