Bridge Construction Injuries
If you have been hurt while working on the building or repair of a Kentucky bridge, you deserve to understand your legal rights. Bridge construction injury law is often more involved than ordinary workers compensation law. It is important that you talk to an attorney who can advise you on your case. You may be eligible for compensation for medical expenses, lost wages as well as pain and suffering.
Bridge construction workers are, by the very nature of their job, exposed to many risks. According to the US Department of Transportation, injuries to bridge construction workers are commonly the result of:
- Contact with objects or equipment
- Slips, trips, or falls
- Transportation incidents
- Exposure to harmful substances or environments
- Drowning/other exposure to water
These types of injuries can be devastating to the physical, mental and financial health of a construction worker and his or her family. Brett H. Oppenheimer is a Kentucky attorney who would like to help you understand the legal process and ensure that you are fairly compensated for your losses. You can contact Brett via email or you can call (502) 242-8877 in Louisville.
