Construction Site Accidents

Construction Site Accidents Law Attorneys

A responsible, sensible construction worker, you understand the dangers of your work site. As a result, you take the proper precautions, wear the right safety equipment, and take care to avoid unnecessary risks that may violate site safety protocols. Regardless of who is at fault in an accident, construction workers who are injured on the job may seek workers’ compensation under the California Workers’ Compensation Act. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation often does not provide enough benefits to cover the medical costs and lost wages that result from a serious construction site injury.

Construction sites are often busy and crowded and loaded with large machinery. When accidents occur, they often involve serious injuries, including death. In fact, thousands of construction workers are injured or killed on the job each year.

Even though construction sites are often dangerous places to work, that doesn’t give your supervisors the right to not maintain a safe worksite. And it doesn’t mean you lose your right to justice should you get hurt.

Causes of Construction Accidents

There are a number of ways that safety-conscious workers can suffer serious injuries on construction sites.
Common construction site accidents include:
  • Scaffolding falls
  • Electric shocks
  • Burns
  • Chemical spills
  • Explosions
  • Crane accidents
  • Falling materials, such as rock or brick

These accidents obviously present significant danger to on-site workers.
