Construction Accidents

Workers on construction sites have some of the most dangerous jobs, but the accidents that cause severe injuries are always preventable. Some of the most frequent reasons construction workers are injured on the job include, but are not limited to:

  • Aerial Lift Accidents
  • Crane Accidents
  • Construction Vehicle Accidents
  • Defective Equipment
  • Electrical Accidents
  • Exposure to Toxic Substances or Dangerous Chemicals
  • Falling Objects
  • Falls From Heights
  • Nail Gun Accidents
  • Scaffolding Accidents
  • Slip and Falls
  • Structural, Roof, Wall, or Floor Collapses
  • Trench Collapses

Workers in the construction injuries can sustain broken bones or burn injuries that keep them out of work for several weeks or months, but catastrophic spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can make it impossible for victims to ever work again. In some cases, families can lose the financial support of loved ones killed in accidents on construction sites.

An employer can be negligent if a construction worker suffers injuries because of unsafe working conditions or untrained, unskilled, or otherwise negligent workers. However, a third party could also be liable in cases involving defective or malfunctioning equipment or the negligence of subcontractors or consultants.

In many cases, injured workers receive workers’ compensation benefits following accidents on construction sites. However, workers’ compensation will not provide any compensation for pain and suffering, and it can be a lengthy process getting this type of claim approved. Lawsuits can be filed against negligent third parties in certain cases, but these third parties will often be represented by insurance companies that will challenge any alleged liability and seek to pay as little as possible to settle such claims.
