North Carolina worker seriously injured in construction accident

Falls are among the most common types of injury-causing incidents that happen on construction sites. This may not come as much surprise as these workers often have to work on ladders, scaffolding and unfinished floors of buildings that are several stories tall. Unfortunately, a construction accident that involves a fall can often lead to serious injuries for the individual or individuals involved.

Machinery accidents can easily cause workplace injuries

Many jobs in North Carolina and elsewhere utilize certain equipment in order to complete the tasks associated with the work. In many cases, proper training and maintenance can make sure that the equipment and machinery remain functioning properly and reduce user error that could lead to accidents. Still, not every accident is avoidable, and individuals could suffer serious workplace injuries.

Tearing down wall leads to man suffering work-related injury

While at work, any area of the body could be injured in an accident. Falls could lead to head, back or limb trauma, and incidents involving machinery or materials could also cause serious harm to any part of the body. Unfortunately, accidents are not always avoidable, and suffering a work-related injury could easily cause a North Carolina worker or those elsewhere to face various challenges.

Workplace injuries can result when workers are hit by materials

When accidents take place, it may not be immediately clear what caused the incidents. Still, it is important to address any injuries that may have resulted, especially from an on-the-job accident. Workplace injuries, including those from construction accidents, can pose considerable threats to workers' well-beings, and immediately calling for help is always wise.

Not all work-related injuries are immediately obvious

It is easy to categorize workers' compensation coverage according to the belief that it only applies to people who suffer an injury during an accident. This isn't the case. It is possible to seek these benefits if you suffered a cumulative trauma injury or a work-related illness. Even though they aren't discussed often, these conditions can be just as ability-limiting as an injury caused by an accident.
