Causes of Construction Accident Brain Injuries

Construction workers can suffer a brain injury in a wide range of different on-the-job accidents, including falls, explosions, crane accidents, forklift accidents, crushing injuries, and machinery malfunctions. Despite the widespread use of hardhats throughout the construction industry, these protective helmets are oftentimes not enough to prevent traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the event that a construction worker should receive a blow to the head. While a construction accident can occur under a myriad of circumstances, accidents of this nature are frequently a direct result of another party’s negligence.

Construction accidents can result from the following:

  • Failure to adhere to safety protocols
  • Inadequate worker training
  • Lack of jobsite supervisors
  • Failure to provide safety gear

Compensation for Construction Accident Victims

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury, you may have grounds to seek compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit, a workers’ compensation claim, or both. While victims of on-the-job injuries are generally unable to sue their employer in exchange for their coverage under workers’ compensation, civil lawsuits may be filed in pursuit of additional damages in the event that the accident was caused by a party other than your employer.

If successful, you may be entitled to recover compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Long-term care costs
