Construction Site Accidents

The construction industry is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States.

Each year, a large number of workers are either killed or seriously injured as a result of the failure to take safety precautions while working at a construction site. In 2013, OSHA reports that one in five worker deaths occurred in the construction sector. The leading causes of death include falls, being struck by an object, electrocution, and caught/in between.

 

In many cases, construction work-related accidents are a direct result of the negligence of a coworker or the negligence of a subcontractor, owner or employer. If you or a loved one have been involved in a construction accident, it is important that you can recover beyond simply worker's compensation recovery.

 

The negligence can involve the failure to properly engage safety practices, proper management, and safety training for workers at construction sites. David Dowling and our team are experienced legal counsel who have been involved in handling construction site accidents for over 25 years.

 

Construction Site Accidents and Injuries

Accidents can occur from a variety of dangerous or unsafe working conditions existing at the construction site, including exposure to toxic chemicals, OSHA violations, improperly constructed scaffolding, and negligent operation of heavy equipment or machinery.

 

Other times, injuries can result from poorly maintained work sites because of improper ventilation, inadequate warnings or exposure to toxic chemicals. These accidents create dangerous situations that may cause serious bodily injury to all individuals present at construction sites, including employees, contractors, property owners, visitors and innocent parties. Often, the injuries can include:

 

  • Burns
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring
  • Broken bones
  • Loss of limbs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Injury to vital organs
  • Eye injuries
  • Loss of hearing
  • Compression injuries
  • Death

 

Filing a claim for negligence does not require any actual intent to cause harm. Injuries that are caused by accident, whether by your own doing or that of another person, may still have damages — including past and future medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering for your injury.

 

These cases must be filed within specific time frames or the victim loses any chance for recovery. If you or a loved one has been injured or died in a construction site accident, you should contact a construction site accident attorney who will represent you with experience, dedication and tenacity. We encourage you to call David B. Dowling, Esquire to schedule a free consultation and analysis of your case.
