Construction Accidents

Construction Accidents

Construction sites are extremely dangerous places to work. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, construction accidents accounted for 20% of work-related deaths in the United States in 2009—the largest number reported for any industry.

The difficulty with construction sites isn’t that the the hazards and risks are unknown—it’s that safety is often not a priority. The necessary day-in, day-out conditions on any active job site involve danger, but with proper percautions those dangers should not result in injury.

Some of the most commonly-reported construction-related accidents include:

  • Scaffold accidents
  • Structural collapses
  • Falls
  • Crane accidents
  • Aerial lift accidents
  • Electrical accidents

Each of these can cause serious injuries often resulting in lost wages and huge medical bills. Both of these—the physical and the financial damages—can have lifelong impacts on the well-being of you and your family.
