Types of Construction Injuries
There are a lot of geological projects taking place at
Bakken Oil Field. If you work in the construction industry, you may beassigned to this
area. Even when your employer provides you with training and safety equipment,
accidents can and will happen.
In some cases it may be someone’s fault. For example, an employer
may not have provided you with training on the type of equipment you were
asked to operate or you were not given quality PPE. As a result, an injury
took place. You could have fallen, been burned, amputated a body part,
or experienced some other kind of injury.
Seeking a Lawyer
Seeking a lawyer is a necessary step when you have encountered a construction
injury. It has been estimated that many workplace injuries go unreported
every year. Not reporting an accident means a company doesn't learn
and they could continue with the status quo, providing a dangerously unsafe
work environment that could lead to many more accidents.
