“I had two accidents that were not my fault and was injured. The insurance company didn’t want to pay for the second accident saying my injuries were all from the first one.

Construction Site Injuries
The state of Minnesota is constantly seeing new change with the construction of more buildings. While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration takes steps to ensure worker safety, construction workers are still highly susceptible to injury and accident death while on the job.
Some common construction injuries include:
Slip and falls
Power tool accidents
Head injuries from falling objects
The first thing we must do in a construction worker case is to determine who was at fault. Were the general contractor and project owner observing all safety measures? Were OSHA standards followed? Was any equipment faulty? Were the workers provided with the proper gear and tools? Was anyone negligent? Was all equipment inspected properly? Once we know the answer to these questions, we can begin to build a case that maximizes your possibility for recovery.
