Detroit Head and Brain Injury Lawyers
Nearly every construction site requires employees to wear specific safety gear such as hard hats. The potential for traumatic brain injuries to occur on a construction site is high, and that threat can even extend to pedestrians and nonemployees who may be near the construction site. These passersby are not required or expected to wear protective head gear, yet they are expected to be protected when walking by a construction site. Sadly, head and brain injuries caused by negligent construction site practices can have serious, lifelong consequences.
If you or someone you love has suffered a head or brain injury from a construction site incident, you may deserve compensation. Construction site negligence poses a threat to anyone who may pass by a construction zone, and this negligence must be addressed.

Dangers of Falling Objects
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 17% of all traumatic brain injuries are caused by a person getting struck by an object or moving into a stationery object. The threat of this type of injury is particularly high around construction sites. These sites can pose a danger to unsuspecting pedestrians who are merely trying to get from one point to the next. Whether a head or brain injury is caused by a stationary object or a moving one, the results can be devastating.
The following situations can put pedestrians at risk for brain and head injuries around construction sites:
- Lack of covered pedestrian walkway
- Dropped tools
- Dropped materials
- Construction materials in the walkway
- Low-hanging or exposed construction
These situations can prove to be harmful to a person walking by a construction site. Injury victims may be able to seek justice with the help of an experienced attorney.
If you have been harmed as a result of negligent construction site practices, you may deserve compensation for your injury. Please contact the Detroit head and brain injury lawyers at Ravid & Associates, P.C., by calling (866) 644-6587 for more information on your legal options.
