Compensation For Injured Construction Workers

Thousands of construction zone accidents occur every year across the United States. They happen for a variety of reasons and in a variety of ways. A construction zone can be a very dangerous place if companies or their workers do not follow proper safety standards. The choice to cut corners and jeopardize safety can result in serious injuries – or death.

If you have been hurt or lost a loved one in a serious construction accident injury, talk with a lawyer from Yonke Law LLC. Our attorneys have been representing injured workers in the area of Kansas City, Missouri, for more than 20 years. We can help you obtain workers’ compensation benefits and increased compensation through a third-party liability claim if appropriate.

Types Of Accidents

Construction zone accidents result in a number of different ways. Here are some of the most common types:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Electrocutions
  • Falling debris
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Machinery accidents
  • Fatigue
  • Slips and falls
  • Defective construction equipment
  • Trench collapse

Profits Over People

Unfortunately, to save time and money, companies sometime cut corners. When constructions companies cut corners by failing to follow established safety rules, their workers can get seriously injured – or even killed. The law holds construction companies that do this responsible for their negligent actions.

Defective Products

Construction accidents can also result from defective equipment. With little or no warning, equipment may fail. When this occurs – especially if it is a large, heavy piece of equipment – serious accidents are often the result. If this situations, the manufacturer of the equipment may be liable for your injuries.


A construction-related injury can be a financially devastating blow. Medical bills can pile up. A family’s source of income may be lost – temporarily or permanently. This is not an enviable position for a family to be in.

Workers’ Compensation

In many instances, medical bills and lost wages from construction zone accidents are covered by the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. In some instances, an employee may also be able to bring a lawsuit against the employer. Our experienced lawyers can help you decide which route is appropriate for your situation.
