Common Construction Accidents

Some of the most common construction accidents include the following:

  • Chemical spills & exposure
  • Crane accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Fire & explosions
  • Scaffolding accidents

Construction Zone Accidents

Construction zones are high risk areas filled with heavy machinery, flashing lights, and moving workers. Yet, many drivers speed through with little or no regard for the safety of the workers. Likewise, there are frequently inadequate, insufficient temporary traffic control devices set up to protect workers within the work zone or to assist in the safe flow of traffic and prevent vehicles from entering dangerous areas.

Work zone accidents are common, making up more than 12 percent of all accidents on America’s highways and bi-ways. Often, the individuals who are injured or killed in these accidents are not the workers themselves—but the motorists. This is because motorists generally travel in small, light vehicles compared to extremely massive, heavy work zone equipment. When smaller passenger vehicles come into contact with much larger and heavier equipment, the results are often catastrophic.

Lawsuits related to construction accidents are different from other types of personal injury suits because of the regulations in the industry and the complexities of construction job site management. There are usually multiple parties involved, like contractors, subcontractors, and even equipment manufacturers. In addition, determining liability often requires navigating through safety regulations set by agencies like OSHA and analyzing contracts between the involved parties. The injuries that occur in construction accidents are also typically more severe and the damages sought may be substantial to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and long-term disability. Personal injury cases related to construction accidents demand thorough investigation, documentation, and legal expertise to ensure fair compensation for the injured person.
