Construction Site Accidents

In the United States construction is a very large industry. It is also a high risk industry. It ranks third in the rate of injury caused deaths, following mining and agriculture. For every 100,000 workers, 15 die due to injury. Some construction site hazards that result in death or serious injury are:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falling from a high location
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Forklift injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Machinery accidents
  • Getting hit by falling items
  • Crane Accidents

No matter how stringent the safety standards are regarding construction, all construction laborers are at risk every day while on the job. Employees are covered under workers’ compensation laws. These laws cover employees for potential losses suffered during construction accidents that result in costs such as medical expenses, vocational rehabilitation, future medical care and wages. Workers’ compensation was designed to compensate workers for injury or death sustained on-site.

In addition to a workers’ compensation claim, construction workers may also be able to file civil lawsuits against negligent parties, including manufacturers of unsafe or defective equipment or any parties who failed to properly secure the work site.  It’s a good idea to contact an experienced construction accident attorney if you’re considering filing a claim.

Construction accident lawsuits can result in settlements and favorable verdicts that help to compensate you for your injury and encourage a safer work environment in the future.
