Des Moines Slip and Fall Attorneys
The condition of many construction sites is not particularly safe for the workers in the area. Compared to other work locations, construction areas can end up covered in slick liquids from leaking vehicles and machines or water leakage. These slick patches can remain present at sites if a site manager is not careful in maintaining the safety of the area. Slipping even from ground level can be extremely dangerous to those on the job, causing injuries that can remove these laborers from their work for weeks and months.

Injuries from Slip and Fall Accidents
As a project progresses, a site can remain cluttered and the liquids and treatments used for particular tasks can be spilled on the ground. Especially considering the kind of tools in use for constructions jobs, a slip and fall accident can be extremely hazardous to a person’s health. The following are the major types of injuries that are sustained from slip and fall accidents:
- Brain and skull injuries
- Wrist injuries
- Joint damage
- Broken bones
- Torn ligaments
These injuries can require a person to undergo extensive medical treatment in order to get back to working health. Not only are these treatments often expensive, as most healthcare is, but can demand a lengthy recovery time from the injured person.
