Construction Accidents

Construction sites can be a very dangerous place because of the heavy equipment, chemicals, electricity and other hazards on the site. Every year thousands of construction workers suffer on the job injuries, many of them permanently disabled and some even result in death. Construction accidents include the following:

  • Falls from an upper level to a lower level
  • Falls off of a scaffold or ladder
  • Hit by equipment and or falling objects
  • Chemical exposure
  • Transportation accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Burns, either heat burns or chemical burns

More than 50% of the workplace injuries occur to workers under the age of 45. Accidents sometimes leave workers permanently disabled during their prime working and earning years. It is imperative that workers receive fair compensation for their injuries to cover loss of wages, rehabilitation and pain and suffering. Families of workers killed on site are also eligible to claim for compensation to provide a stable future for the family.

Almost all workplace injuries involve worker's compensation. In addition, workers and their families may be entitled to compensation from construction managers, property owners, equipment manufacturers and general contractors. While OSHA is responsible for workplace safety regulations, because there are so many hazards on a construction site, there is no wonder that accidents still occur.
