Unsafe Work Sites and Exposed Nails
Most building projects involve the liberal use of nails and screws. Although nails are essential for completing construction projects and holding building materials solidly together, they can also cause painful injuries. Unfortunately, if a construction site does not follow proper safety codes, it can result in the littering of nails on the ground and walkways, which can then lead to dangerous puncture wounds for unsuspecting workers.
While nail injuries can vary in severity, there are many different costs that are commonly associated with puncture wounds and other damages caused by nails. The attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP, can help construction accident victims in New York seek the full compensation they deserve to cover these expenses, even for relatively minor injuries such as nail puncture wounds.
Costs of Exposed Nail Injuries
Stepping on a nail is not only physically painful, but it can hurt your wallet too. The costs that might affect a person who has suffered a nail injury include:
- Emergency transport to medical facility
- Open wound treatment
- Tetanus shot
- Wound repair / care
- Pain medication
While these costs might seem minor, it does not mean that they should be your responsibility, especially when someone else’s negligence caused your exposed nail injury.
