Construction Accident Attorneys
Each year, more workers are hurt and killed doing construction work than workers in any other major industrial sector. In 2019 alone, about 20% of worker fatalities in private industry were in construction.
Injuries at building sites range from broken bones to severe brain injuries, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, amputations, crush injuries, and even death.
Common types of construction site accidents include:
- Falling objects or workers falling from elevated areas
- Accidents with motor vehicles, including trucks, cranes and forklifts, or workplace machinery
- Injuries from electrocution, fires, explosions and exposure to harmful substances and environments
- Injuries caused by defective machinery, equipment, or tools including cranes, forklifts, bulldozers, dump trucks, jackhammers, nail guns, drills, table saws, belt sanders, scaffolding, or ladders
