Common Causes of Construction Accidents

The construction industry has grown exponentially over the past several years. It seems as though there are construction projects every street you turn onto. Although the projects provide a big economic support, they can also be a hotbed for serious construction accident injuries and fatalities. These dangers are present for both workers and bystanders at construction sites.

If you or a loved one is a victim of a construction site accident, it is important that you know what your legal options are. An experienced Los Angeles construction accident attorney can provide you with the best legal advice based on the specific facts of your case.

This article can give you an overview of the common causes for construction accidents and your legal options after a construction accident.

Potential Causes of Construction Accidents

Before you can determine what your legal options are after a construction accident, you need to determine what actually caused the incident. Construction accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. The top causes of worker injuries, commonly referred to as the “Fatal Four”, include:

  • 1. Falls

  • 2. Struck object

  • 3. Electrocution

  • 4. Caught-in/between

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), these “Fatal Four” were responsible for nearly three out of five of construction worker deaths.
Other common types of construction accidents include:

  • Scaffolding accidents

  • Ladder accidents

  • Slip and falls

  • Power tool and machinery accidents

  • Vehicle accidents

Most of these accidents can be attributed to some type of negligence and may involve unsafe work site conditions, improper use of tools and/or equipment, and lack of protective safeguards.

Legal Options After a Construction Accident

Laws vary by state and apply differently to various injuries, but injured victims of construction accidents have three main legal options:

  • Worker’s compensation claim

  • Personal injury lawsuit

  • Products liability lawsuit

To determine what options are available to you or an injured loved one, it is best to immediately consult with an experienced Los Angeles construction accident attorney. They can review the specific facts of your case, help you hold the right parties liable and get you the full compensation that you deserve. Some common types of damages that you may be entitled to include:

  • Past and future medical bills

  • Loss of wages

  • Loss of earning capacity

  • Pain and suffering

  • Out of pocket expenses.
