Types of Construction Accidents
The nature of a construction site is one of hazards. However, with proper
precautions, equipment, and training, every construction zone can be reasonably
safe for passersby and workers alike. It is when failures to follow standard
safety protocols occur that the hazards of a construction site become
unreasonable, and preventable accidents happen.
Our law firm can help with all types of construction accident claims, such as:
Scaffolding Collapses: According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA),
scaffolding collapses are one of the leading causes of severe injury and
death on construction sites.
Hit by a Falling Object: In a worksite with verticality, like the construction of a multistory
building, falling objects from above are a serious concern. Even a small
bolt can cause a brain injury or fatality if it strikes someone after
falling for several stories.
Falling from a Great Height: Many construction workers are required to scale considerable heights to
complete work at the top of the construction plan. Failing to provide
adequate fall protections can lead to a dangerous fall.
Electrocution: Wiring projects on a construction site can lead to electrical shorts or
metal materials becoming electrified, causing electrocution hazards.
Should You Sue Your Employer After a Construction Accident?
Being involved in a construction accident not as a passerby but as a worker
puts you in a difficult situation. If you are employed by the construction
firm controlling the worksite, then you might have workers’ compensation
benefits made available to you. Suing your employer for damages will negate
your ability to use workers’ comp, though.
For the most part, construction accident claims are filed by independent
contractors hurt on the job. Independent contractors are typically not
provided any sort of workers’ compensation benefits by construction
firms that employ them for contracted jobs. As a result, you will be free
to pursue a personal injury claim without having to worry about voiding
