Construction Accidents

Employment in construction is one of the more dangerous jobs a person can have. Working dozens of stories above the ground, in unfinished buildings, using dangerous and heavy equipment is hazardous to even the most skilled workers. Construction accidents often leave victims severely injured and unable to work.

Causes of Construction Worker Accidents

Due to the nature of construction work, workers depend on each other and on the myriad safety regulations put in place. Unfortunately, however, sometimes the system fails and people suffer injuries or, worse, death.

Common causes of construction accidents include:

  • Crane accidents or falls, typically caused by high winds or defective cranes
  • Scaffolding accidents, from inaccurately assembled scaffolds or defective scaffolding
  • Falls from roofs, such as skylight falls or failure of safety equipment
  • Falls from holes in an unfinished floor
  • Electrical accidents, including electrocution or shock
  • Explosions or fires
  • Falling objects, such as tools, debris, materials, or ladders

The construction company and your employer are responsible for keeping your construction site a safe place to work. If you suffer injury on the job, your personal injury attorney can explain your worker’s rights.

Types of Construction Site Injuries

On-the-job construction accidents can lead to devastating injuries. These include:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Respiratory problems
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Electrical shock
  • Eye injuries or vision loss
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Chemical exposure
  • Head or traumatic brain injuries
  • Hearing loss

Jonathan A Kessous did an outstanding job in handling my case. He was able to get the most serious charge and several other charges against me dropped and my fine greatly reduced. I was most impressed with his professionalism.competence and the timely manner in which he responded to all my questions and concerns. This demonstrated to me that I was a priority and not just a client!
