Birmingham Construction Accidents Lawyers
As one of the largest employment fields in the United States, the construction industry employs an estimated nine million workers across the country. Sadly, all of these workers are at risk of suffering a serious and potentially life threatening injury every day they go to work. In fact, statistics from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) estimate one in ten construction workers are injured in the estimated 150,000 construction accidents ever year across the nation. When you suffer an injury in a construction accident, the repercussions can be devastating to every area of your life. Not only could you suffer a physical injury, but the accident may be severe enough to leave you disabled and unable to work.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a construction accident, you may not only be severely limited or even unable to work in the construction field again, but it could also affect your overall quality of life.

- Burns from equipment
- Eye injuries from welding
- Falls from scaffolding or roofs
