We Can Help With Your Construction Accident Claim

Construction work remains one of the most dangerous occupations for workers. Almost 5,000 workers die every year in work-related accidents, and approximately 20 percent of those deaths occur in construction accidents. And beyond those who die, thousands are injured and may need significant medical care, including surgery and therapy before they are able to return to work.

Four Types Of Accidents Pose Major Threats

Four types of accidents are the most lethal on construction sites. OSHA identifies falls, being caught in between objects, being struck by equipment, and electrocution as causing the most fatal accidents. Construction companies often try to save time and money by taking shortcuts with safety, but in this area, those shortcuts can lead to severe injuries for workers.

  • Falls: Falls cause nearly 40 percent of deaths on construction sites.
  • Caught-in: These occur when a worker is pinned between two objects, caught in equipment like belts and cables, and include engulfments and cave-ins in trenches and excavations.
  • Struck-by: These accidents include workers being struck by objects that are flying, falling swinging or rolling. This includes vehicle collisions.
  • Electrocution: Due to the nature of electricity, electrocutions are often deadly. In addition, electrocution accidents often result in burns, shocks, arcing, fires and explosions. Burn injuries are especially dangerous and can require long recovery periods.
