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 workers’ compensation.
