A construction accident occurs when an accident or incident results in a victim being injured, caused by the negligence or misconduct of another while working in a construction setting. When a construction accident is proven, victims are able to recover compensation for their losses. While many construction accidents appear to be “straightforward” at first sight, there are actually a multitude of complexities and challenges that people can face with these cases. It is important that you have a knowledgeable construction accident lawyer on your side to handle the complexities of your case.

Causes of Construction Accidents

There are many potential causes of a construction accident, including:

Equipment Failure or Malfunction

Defects in equipment can arise due to a number of factors, including design flaw, manufacturer flaw, or wear and tear from use. Although inspections are performed regularly, including before and after projects are completed or during work hours by workers or supervisors on site, accidents still can result from faulty or malfunctioning components. 

Human Error

Human error can happen due to workers who perform tasks such as operating heavy machinery or vehicles that transport materials from one place to another on site. Therefore, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) pays close attention to the training and communication among workers to determine if human error may be the cause of an accident. 

Poorly Planned Work Area

The planning stage is crucial when it comes to construction sites because it helps identify potential hazards that could lead to an accident later on down the road. For example, a worker is injured when he slips off scaffolding because there was no safety rail installed at the time of his fall. 

Types of Construction Accidents

There are a wide range of construction accidents that can occur, including:

  • Falls from heights: A worker may fall from a building, scaffolding, or piece of machinery, resulting in serious injuries.
  • Falls into holes or trenches: A worker may even fall into a hole, trench or ditch, which can also result in catastrophic injuries. 
  • Crushed by heavy machinery: A crush injury can result in heavy machinery crushing a worker’s entire body or part of their body. These types of injuries can result in a lifetime of disabilities and complications, and sometimes even fatalities.
  • Electrocution: Workers with generators, power tools, and other forms of electric machinery can suffer from electric burns if something goes wrong.
  • Asbestos exposure: Construction workers are at high risk of asbestos exposure, which can result in serious diseases down the line. 

If you have been injured in a construction accident, it is in your best interest to seek help from a reputable construction accident lawyer as soon as possible. Our team will work diligently to ensure you are compensated fairly for your injuries.

  • Fractures/broken bones 
  • Internal bleeding 
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Lacerations/road rash
