CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS & INJURIES









Construction, with 7.2 million wage and salary jobs and 1.8 million self-
employed and  family workers, is one of the Nation's largest industries
(2008 statistics; source:
Bureau of Labor Statistics). The construction
industry is also one the most dangerous, only after mining and agriculture.
Despite the decline in construction injuries and fatalities in our country
over the years due to important work place safety legislation and the
effects of the economy on the extent of construction activity, workers in the
industry still face a significant risk of injury or death as a consequence of
the failure or neglect of those responsible to ensure appropriate work place
safety at construction sites.

Throughout the U.S., falls are the number one cause of construction
injuries and  fatalities, with over 200,000 non-fatal incidents and
approximately 600 deaths each year. These statistics are consistent with
Ginsberg & Wolf's representation of construction workers and their families
with the majority of our construction accident cases involving construction
accident falls.

Construction injuries are often serious and can significantly change the life
you were once used to. The injuries sustained in a construction accident
may prevent you from returning to work, and may require you to undergo
extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, creating an extreme
financial hardship for your family.  An injured construction worker may be
left depending on workers' compensation benefits, which is often only a
fraction of a worker's salary prior to the accident, and may be insufficient to
pay for bills and to cover lost wages. Moreover, workers' compensation
benefits are usually insufficient compensation for the pain and suffering
sustained by a worker in a construction accident. With more than a 50 year
history of legal practice, Ginsberg & Wolf's attorneys, have recovered
millions of dollars for injured workers and their families.
