Causes of Construction Site Injuries
Working on a construction site is physically demanding and dangerous. Workers use or work in close proximity to large equipment, climb ladders, and work on scaffolding tens or hundreds of feet from the ground. Some of the most common types of construction accidents include the following:
- Crane accidents due to malfunction or improper operation
- Electrical injuries as a result of not following safety procedures, equipment misuse, or poorly maintained equipment
- Falling debris of all varieties from overhead worksites
- Falls from improperly constructed scaffolding, improper use of or failure to use guardrails or other protective equipment, and improper use of portable ladders
- Scaffolding falls or scaffolding collapses
These construction accidents are often due to the carelessness of general contractors, site supervisors or managers, property owners, or others. When a third-party causes worker injuries, a personal injury claim may be filed in addition to a Workers’ Compensation claim.
Construction Injury Liability and Compensation
Workers’ Compensation only covers certain basic expenses when a construction worker suffers an injury. This coverage is often not enough to cover all of the expenses an injured worker faces and generally does not cover pain and suffering or the full range of damages available to the loved ones of a worker killed in an accident. However, many construction accidents involve third-parties and allow the filing of a personal injury claim.
Third-party responsibility for a construction injury can be attributed to the following individuals or businesses:
- Contractors and subcontractors
- Scaffolding companies
- Insurance companies
- Equipment manufacturers
