Construction accidents are a common occurrence in the United States and they often cause catastrophic injury and/or death. In fact, One recent study showed that construction accidents were responsible for approximately 1 in 5 work related fatalities. OSHA Statistics Although most companies and workers are reasonably safe and responsible on the job site, all it takes is one moment of carelessness or inattention by a particular worker to cause a life-altering accident. One recent study showed that construction accidents were responsible for approximately 1 in 5 work related fatalities.
Common causes of construction accidents include lack of fall protection and improper use of fall protection, insufficient hazard communication and insufficient warning, electrocution, explosions, poor visibility, unsafe scaffolding, lack of respiratory protection and failure to comply with confined space regulations, use of defective or unsafe equipment and tools, negligent machinery operation, lack of machinery guarding, and failure to provide or use safety equipment.
For those injured in a construction accident as a result of another’s negligence, a personal injury lawsuit is likely the only means by which compensation may be obtained. Depending on the circumstances, compensation may be available for certain types of economic loss, including past and future medical expenses, past and future lost earnings, lost earning capacity and loss of ability to provide household services. In addition, compensation may be available for certain types of noneconomic loss such as past and future physical pain, mental suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, physical impairment, inconvenience, grief, anxiety and humiliation.
