From bruises to paralyzing injuries and death, a slip and fall accident may adversely affect a person’s life in a number of ways. When these accidents occur on construction sites, the consequences may be particularly dangerous. Construction work often involves working at great heights, in dangerous locations, or utilizing powerful tools that pose a threat to workers safety if not properly maintained.
If you or your loved one has been a victim of a construction site accident, it is important to speak to an attorney about your legal rights. If the slip and fall occurred due to the egregious negligence of another party, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Otherwise, a workers’ compensation claim might be available to you. An experienced St. Louis construction slip and fall attorney of the Finney Law Office can help you understand your legal rights.

Injuries Associated with Construction Site Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and falls on construction sites can be caused by the failure to promptly or adequately clean slippery surfaces or warn employees of the possibility of wet surfaces. They also may occur when negligent oversight permits trip hazards to remain in pathways used by employees or when uneven stairs or walkways are allowed to persist. When a person does lose their footing, they may be at risk of the following injuries:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal bleeding
No construction worker should have to suffer due to the negligence of his or her employer.
