Construction Site Accidents

construction site accidents injury lawyer

The Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the construction industry has the second highest number of deaths compared to all others.  Falls and contact with equipment are the 2 most common causes of construction accidents contributing to the statistic that 1 out of every 10 construction workers will  suffer an accident this year.

Federal and State law set strict safety guidelines for construction sites.  Despite this, over 1000 deaths happen on construction sites every year.  In 2003, the average number of days missed from an onsite injury was 31 days.  Property owners, construction companies, contractors, equipment manufacturers, inspectors, and/or architects can be held liable for any negligence or inadequate safety provisions that caused your accident.

    • Were you injured by the negligence of another work crew on the job site?
    • Did  defective or poorly designed equipment, such as defective scaffolding or a nail gun, cause your injuries?
    • Did the construction company fail to follow all safety guidelines?
