When your injuries are caused by a third party or defective equipment, even though the New Mexico Workers Compensation system may provide for some of your medical and rehabilitation expenses, a knowledgeable lawyer can help recover additional expenses, including pain and suffering and lost future income that may not be adequately provided by Workers Compensation. The Hayes Law Firm understands the work place and is committed to helping our clients recover, both physically and financially, from their workplace injuries.

Causes of Workplace Accidents

Workplace injuries can range from slip and falls, muscle strains, and repetitive stress injuries to amputations, concussions, and electrocutions. Nearly 3 million non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses are reported yearly among private industry employers in the United States, according to a recent study by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. In New Mexico the number of workplace deaths have increased by 20 percent. These statistics plainly show that workplaces in New Mexico can be dangerous places to spend eight or more hours every day.

Workplace or construction accidents can be caused by a variety of factors:

  • Construction Site Bystander Injuries
  • General Contractors and Subcontractors
  • Injury to Construction Workers
  • Negligent Operation of Construction Equipment
  • Poor Maintenance of Construction Equipment
  • Negligent or Poor Safety Training

Construction and Workplace Injuries

The combination of heavy equipment and great heights on a construction site can be a recipe for disaster. When negligence is added to the mix, the result may be a tragic construction accident. When a construction accident involves only an employer and an employee, Workers Compensation may be the only source of financial relief for the injured worker. However, a thorough investigation of the causes and circumstances surrounding a construction site accident often reveals that another person or company also shared responsibility for the accident. For example, if you were employed by a subcontractor, the general contractor might be responsible for ensuring the safety of the whole construction site. Construction accidents often arise as the result of actions by unlicensed contractors or supervisors. Improper hiring or a failure to provide proper safety equipment may result in liability for someone other than your employer. If you or someone you love has been injured while on a construction site, the personal injury attorneys of The Hayes Law Firm can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. Contact Us today to schedule your free, confidential consultation with our experienced attorneys.
