Construction sites are busy, bustling, and unfortunately, full of hazards. Construction accidents are common and account for one in five worker deaths in the private sector. These accidents can be caused for any number of reasons, but typically occur for one of three reasons.
The three (3) factors that cause accidents on construction sites include:
- Failing to identify an unsafe condition-either prior to starting a job or after it has begun.
- Proceeding with a construction job even though a hazard has been identified.
- Failing to follow safety rules.
While some accidents can be attributed to site-specific issues, such as a trench collapse, the vast majority of accidents occur simply because unsafe work conditions were not identified, or when they were identified, work continued to take place regardless.
Violation of safety rules is also a leading cause of serious construction accidents. This can sometimes be attributed to insufficient employee training or incompetence.
Companies that are concerned with the health and safety of their workers will often go above and beyond in identifying preventative measures to ensure that their employees are safe. Not all employers are this conscientious, though, and the results are often deadly.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to negligence on the job site or a defective product, an experienced personal injury lawyer can review your claim and determine if there were unsafe working conditions, potential OSHA violations, and other hazards that may have existed at the time of your accident. They will also determine who may be liable for your injuries and damages and what compensation you may be entitled to.
