- In construction Accident
A booming construction generally means a booming economy. Unfortunately, it also means an increased risk of serious and even fatal injuries at construction sites. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 5,190 workers were killed on the job in 2016. This equals to more than 99 deaths a week or more than 14 deaths every day.
Construction workers take a risk every day on the job. If you or a loved one was injured in a construction site accident, you may be entitled to compensation. In order to get the full compensation that you deserve, you need to hire an experienced Los Angeles construction site accident attorney to protect your legal rights and fight for you.
Construction’s “Fatal Four”
More than 21 percent of worker fatalities in the private industry in 2016 were in construction – that is, one out of five worker deaths were in construction. The leading causes of private sector deaths (not including highway accidents) in the construction industry were falls, followed by struck by object, electrocution, and caught-in between accidents. These “Fatal Four” were responsible for more than 60 percent of all construction worker deaths in 2016. According to OSHA, if the Fatal Four are eliminated, nearly 631 workers’ lives in America would be saved every year.

Construction site accidents are generally very serious and even fatal. These injuries not only impact the lives of the victims, but also the lives of their loved ones.

It can also help bring a sense of justice and closure.
