Many construction site accidents are due to negligence for safety policies and procedures. Construction companies are responsible for taking precautions to protect workers and subcontractors on site, but many fail to do so, leading to serious injuries and even death. If you were injured in a construction accident, you can seek compensation for your injuries. Often, you do this through worker’s compensation insurance if your employer has it. In some cases, you may even need to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. Our team seeks compensation for you through insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits.
Common Construction Site Injuries
Construction site injuries are frequently due to safety negligence. Some of the most common types of construction injuries include falls, being struck by objects, electrocution, and getting caught between objects. Some common causes of these injuries include:
- Missing or incorrectly installed fall rails
- Incorrectly installed or maintained scaffolding
- Lack of safety training
- Lack of fall prevention training
- Defective or unmaintained construction equipment
- Improper operation of equipment like cranes
- Lack of personal protection equipment
- Lack of safety policies for the construction site
Construction workplace accidents can be incredibly severe, often leading to catastrophic injuries or even death, leaving victims with high costs for things like medical expenses and lost wages.
