Common Construction Accident Injuries
A construction site can be a dangerous workplace. An accident on a construction site might lead to injuries ranging from minor to catastrophic. These injuries can temporarily or permanently change your physical abilities and prevent you from immediately returning to your normal activities.
The following injuries are commonly associated with construction accidents. This list is not exhaustive, and you may suffer injuries not included on it:
- Muscle sprains
- Muscle tears
- General soreness
- Cuts and bruises
- Welts and punctures
- Broken bones and fractures
Keeping track of your range of injuries and their required treatments might be challenging. It can be equally challenging to track and compile the plethora of medical bills your injuries might generate. Each health care provider and facility that provides treatment might have its own billing system. In addition, you may have separate costs for prescription medications, in-home assistance, and required rehabilitation.
You do not have to gather all of these bills or complete your case file on your own. The Fitch Law Firm LLC can help you create a complete case file that includes all bills related to your medical care. By doing so, we may be able to assist you in accurately assessing the value of your lawsuit.

Your Time Is Limited to File a Lawsuit in Ohio
The sooner you involve our construction accident team in your fight for financial recovery, the more time we may have to prepare and file your lawsuit. Early intervention is also important because Ohio has a predetermined timeline for holding the at-fault party accountable for your damages via a lawsuit.
Generally, your personal injury lawsuit must be filed within two years of the accident, according to Ohio Revised Code § 2305.10. If you attempt to file your lawsuit late, you might not be allowed to file it at all. If your lawsuit is allowed to be filed late, the at-fault party may request its immediate dismissal. This request is likely to be granted, and you might be left with no options for financial recovery.
With sufficient notice, the Fitch Law Firm LLC can help you file your lawsuit on time.
