Help is available for victims of workplace accidents

Construction sites and other industrial work sites can be dangerous for workers. Workers have the right to a safe workplace and when they have been harmed because proper safety precautions were not taken at their workplace, it is important for them to be familiar with the protections available to them. When a worker has been injured on the job it impacts both them and their family which is why understanding the resources available to them is helpful.

Following a workplace accident, an injured worker may be able to obtain help with medical bills, lost wages and the suffering they have endured as a result of the work injury or illness they have suffered. Workers in a variety of construction and industrial settings can be victims of accidents, injuries and illnesses in the workplace including carpenters, steelworkers and other laborers.

Situations in which workers can be injured include falls from scaffolding and ladders; equipment malfunctions; crane accidents; slip and fall accidents; dump truck, flat bed and other truck accidents; wall or roof collapses; industrial burns; electrocutions; explosions; and toxic exposure. When a worker has not been provided with a safe workplace, and has suffered harm as a result, there are several layers of protection available to them.

There are different legal options and remedies available depending on the unique circumstances of each workplace accident and the harm suffered by the injured worker which is why workers and their families should be familiar with all of them. Because a workplace accident threatens the livelihood of an injured worker and their family, they should be aware of the legal resources available to help them.
