Construction Accidents and Burn Injuries

The construction has presents unique risks, including the potential for burn injuries. Here are some of the most common types of burn injuries that occur on construction sites, and what you can do to recover compensation.

Electrical burns

Electrical burns are a significant concern in construction, given the numerous potential sources of electricity, including electrical devices, lightning, currents on the jobsite and power lines. The severity of electrical burns can vary based on the voltage involved, but even minor burns can cause significant damage. More severe electrical burns can harm blood vessels, nerves, muscles and organs beneath the skin.

Thermal burns

Thermal burns are among the most common types of burn injuries in the construction industry and the United States. These burns result from exposure to excessive heat, such as contact with steam, flames, and hot liquids. While many thermal burns are relatively minor and treatable at outpatient centers or hospitals, a small percentage require specialized burn center care.

Chemical burns

Construction workers who handle corrosive or caustic materials on the jobsite are at risk of sustaining chemical burns. These burns can result from exposure to industrial cleaners, manufacturing chemicals and laboratory substances. Chemical burns cause damage to the skin and underlying tissues, making them particularly painful and debilitating.

Construction workers who suffer burn injuries on the job may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits. Workers' compensation provides medical coverage and wage replacement for employees injured at work. However, in some cases, injured workers may also have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim against a negligent third party, such as a manufacturer of faulty equipment.
