The OSHA (Occupations Safety and Heath Administration) assumes that there will be over 1,000 construction workers that will suffer a work-related fatality this year while many others will undergo substantial physical injuries which could have been avoided. Even though construction workers are skilled laborers who are trained in basic safety, accidents will still occur on job sites.
When accidents in the construction injury occur, many of the hard working laborers can feel betrayed, frustrated and often times overwhelmed by the lack of legal options they are presented with. Many of these workers can become injured beyond the ability to work, and the loss of income acts as motivation for them to return to work even before their injuries are properly healed. This can further endanger the worker's physical safety and health conditions. Construction site accidents can result in serious injury, brain injury, and even wrongful death.
Project owners and general contractors are obligated to keep construction sites safe. Accidents on a construction sites can be the result of many problems, including inadequate safety inspections, someone else's negligence, poor equipment and OSHA violations.
Common construction site accidents:
- Crane Accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Welding Accidents
- Electrocution electrical accidents
- Improperly Braced Trenches, trench collapses
- Construction Site Falls
