Leading Causes of Construction Injuries
There are many causes of construction-site injuries and deaths, including:
- Trench collapse
- Scaffold collapse
- Electric shock
- Lack of protective gear
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Exposure to toxic materials such as asbestos or lead
- Exposure to other dangerous conditions
According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls are the leading cause of construction site deaths. Following is a breakdown of other construction site injuries and deaths that occur each year:
- Approximately 50 deaths and 4,500 injuries occur each year as a result of scaffold-related accidents
- Forklift accidents account for approximately 100 fatalities and 95,000 injuries per year
- Stairway and ladder falls account for an additional 36 deaths and 24,882 injuries each year
Given the dangerous nature of the jobsites, injuries that occur at construction sites are more likely to result in death than are injuries at other locations.
Employers May be Liable for Injuries
Construction site victims suffer severe, sometimes fatal injuries. Many of these deaths or injuries could have been prevented if the construction site had been properly inspected, maintained and supervised. In some cases, employers disregard laws, regulations and other safety requirements, thereby exposing their employees to dangerous conditions.
At The Killino Firm we fight aggressively to ensure every responsible party is held accountable for their actions and that the injured and their families recover full compensation for their losses.
