Construction Site Injuries
Construction sites are dangerous places and serious accidents can happen, regardless of the strict safety standards in place to protect workers and the public. Even though they are called construction site accidents, these serious injuries can occur at your personal residence, a commercial location, or an industrial site. Construction workers aren't the only people injured in construction site injury accidents, hazardous conditions can also injure passersby or homeowners.
Causes of Construction Accidents
Unfortunately, construction site injuries are not uncommon and can occur in a wide variety of ways, including:
- Slip and falls
- Roofing accidents
- Misuse of tools
- Falling objects
- Crane accidents
- Struck by accidents
- Heavy equipment failure/user error
- Electrical accidents
- Misuse of safety implements
- Power tool mishaps
- Scaffolding accidents
- Welding accidents
When construction accidents occur, they are often caused by the negligence of those responsible for the safety of the site, including contractors, site supervisors, or property owners. While sites are often checked by safety inspectors for potentially hazardous materials, surfaces, and equipment, inspectors may overlook some issues and allow construction to proceed on a site that is hazardous to a worker and bystander's safety. Some construction companies are willing to neglect safety measures in an attempt to maximize their profit. This puts their workers and innocent bystanders in danger and the result can be serious injury or even death.
Construction Injury accidents can be covered under several different areas of law, depending on the circumstances of each case. Including, but not limited to:
- Wrongful Death
- Product Liability
- Premise Liability
