Nebraska Construction Accident Lawyer

Have you been injured on a Nebraska construction job? Have you been subjected to worksite hazards and incurred an injury or illness, whether or not you were employed on that site? If so, you'll want to consult with a qualified Nebraska construction accident attorney.

The construction industry is one the most dangerous places to work. In the United States construction accounts for 20% of work force fatalities, a large number especially considering only 6% of the nation's workers are employed in the construction field.

Construction is a dangerous business, despite the many precautions that are put in place to protect construction workers. Heavy machinery, scaffolding, and ever-changing workplace conditions can be hazardous to employees. Additionally, construction workers are subject to strain and injury due to repetitive and demanding physical work. Injuries that may not be as detrimental to other careers such as sprains and/or strains, bruises, cuts, heat burns, carpal tunnel syndrome, fractures, and tendonitis can be devastating for construction workers because their body is their mode of income.

There are various reasons why an employee or an innocent bystander would become injured on a worksite. Often, construction accidents are a result of contact with equipment, strikes from or against foreign objects, overexertion, falls, fires/explosions, assaults, or exposure to harmful chemicals or other substances. It's no surprise, then, that accidents on construction sites happen more frequently than at other workplaces.

Fortunately, in Nebraska as elsewhere, there are laws in place to outline and regulate the health and safety procedures that must be effected by construction contractors. In the United States the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets and enforces standards concerning workplace safety and health. These specific, restrictive construction laws make it imperative for a construction accident victim to seek the aid of an experienced construction accident lawyer because, unfortunately, not all precautions stop accidents from happening

If you've been injured in a construction job, the first step is to contact a construction attorney. Even if you are still in the hospital, you can begin by contacting your employer and an attorney to report your accident. Don't be cowed or intimidated by insurance agency regulators, who will try to get you to make a statement that could later on be used against you, or who might attempt to prevent you from speaking with a lawyer. Consultation with a legal professional is not only your right it is in your best interests.

Once an attorney has reviewed your case and gathered the necessary details and information, he or she can then begin to fight for what you are entitled. Accidents may result in hefty medical expenses or even death. If you have suffered an injury due to a construction accident or have lost a loved one due to a construction site accident, contact a Nebraska construction accident lawyer attorney and receive the compensation you deserve. If you've been injured in a construction-site accident, whether as an employee or as a non-employee who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, it behooves you to seek out a qualified construction accident attorney today.
