Construction Site Injuries

Construction sites are dangerous places and serious accidents can happen, regardless of the strict safety standards in place to protect workers and the public. Even though they are called construction site accidents, these serious injuries can occur at your personal residence, a commercial location or an industrial site. Construction workers aren't the only people injured in construction site injury accidents, hazardous conditions can also injure a passersby or homeowner.

Causes of Construction Accidents

Construction Site injuries are more common that one would think. Below are some of the ways in which an injury may result:
  • Slip and falls
  • Roofing accidents
  • Misuse of tools
  • Falling objects
  • Crane accidents
  • Trenching
  • Struck by accidents
  • Heavy equipment failure/user error
  • Electrical accidents
  • Misuse of safety implements
  • Power tool mishaps
  • Fires/explosions
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Welding accidents

When construction accidents occur, it is often because of the negligence of the people/person responsible for the safety of the construction site, including the supervisors, contractors, or the property owners. Safety inspectors often check for the safety of the site. Sometimes the hazardous materials, equipment and surfaces may get overlooked, and can be hazardous to a worker and/or bystander’s safety. Some construction companies are willing to neglect safety measures in an attempt to maximize their profit. This puts their workers and innocent bystanders in danger and the result can be serious injury or even death.

Construction Injury accidents can be covered under different areas of law, including:

  • Wrongful Death
  • Product Liability
  • Premise Liability
  • Negligence
