Common Construction Site Injuries

With heavy machinery all over the place, ladders, stairs, and scaffolding holding workers at heights, high-voltage levels of electricity being used frequently, and toxic substances being transported and used, it’s no wonder that the construction injury is listed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration as one of the most dangerous industries to work in. In fact, in 2015 alone, over 20% of all workplace fatalities occurred in the construction industry.

There are four types of injuries that cause the vast majority of injuries and deaths on construction sites every year, otherwise known as the “fatal four.”

The “fatal four” consists of:

  • Falls
  • Struck by object injuries
  • Electrocutions
  • Caught-in or caught-between injuries

Of these four injuries, falls are by far the most common, as workers may slip and fall off a ladder or scaffolding, trip over an exposed wire or material, or a material supporting them may choose to give out, causing them to fall. It should come as no surprise then that the most often-violated OSHA safety standards that are violated are ones pertaining to fall protection, including using the proper equipment, best practices, and more. Because so many of these injuries are preventable, it’s strongly advised that you review your case with an attorney if you or a loved one were injured while on a construction site. An attorney can review all of the evidence in your case and determine if negligence played a role in the accident, which would make you entitled to compensation.
