Glenwood Springs Accident Attorneys for Injured Construction Workers

Glenwood Springs Accident Attorneys

Injured working on a construction site in Glenwood Springs or the surrounding area?

Has your employer failed to carry the necessary workers’ compensation insurance?

Are you worried you won’t receive the benefits you’re owed?

Even if all the necessary precautions are taken, accidents can still happen, resulting in serious injury or death. A thousand things can go wrong on a construction site, and adequate safety means more than just wearing a hard hat. The construction industry has one of the highest occupational injury and fatality rates of any industry. In 2019, about 1 in 5 worker deaths in private industry were in construction.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

Engineers, architects, contractors, managers, and laborers are regularly exposed to dangerous equipment, machinery, and risky situations on a construction site. Common work zone accidents occur due to:

  • Scaffold or ladder accidents 
  • Defective machinery and heavy equipment
  • Falling objects
  • Road work zone accidents
  • Failure to install guardrails or safety nets
  • Electrocutions
  • Injuries due to being struck by object or caught in between objects 
  • Structure or trench collapse

Typical workers’ compensation benefits for construction workers include:

  • Medical expenses (including compensation for doctor appointments, therapy, medications, and surgeries)
  • Travel expenses (for commuting to and from medical appointments)
  • Wage loss benefits (also known as temporary disability benefits)
  • Disfigurement benefits (such as scarring due to the injury or treatment)
  • Permanent disability benefits (either partial or total)
  • Death benefits

The income you receive depends on your average weekly wage in the time leading up to the accident and whether you can work with restrictions following your injury. If you disagree with the insurer’s determination of your benefits, you have the right to contest the decision. An attorney for workers’ compensation may represent you.
