Construction sites can be dangerous places for workers, as many are often injured or killed while performing their jobs.

Additionally, the bureau reported that over 1,000 people died from accident injuries in the same year.

Most Common Construction Accidents

As outlined above, construction sites can be hazardous, especially if construction companies, subcontractors, and others do not take the necessary safety precautions.

Common accidents that result from construction site negligence include but are not limited to:

  • Falls: According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, this type of accident is the leading cause of death on construction sites.
  • Struck By Object Accidents: Unsecure objects, like tools and materials, can often fall and harm unsuspecting workers.
  • Electrocution: Live wires and faulty electrical systems all present serious hazards to workers.
  • Machinery Accidents: Construction sites host all kinds of machinery, from forklifts to excavators. Machinery malfunctions or improper use can cause significant injuries.
  • Hazardous Material Exposure: Construction workers can encounter dangerous materials on a job site, such as asbestos or toxic chemicals, which can cause immediate and long-term adverse health effects.
  • Fires and Explosions: Bad electrical wiring, chemicals, welding sparks, and more can cause unexpected fires and explosions, which are highly dangerous for workers.

Who Is Responsible for Construction Site Accidents?

Multiple parties can be responsible for construction site accidents. Construction companies, subcontractors, property owners, and equipment manufacturers can all be liable for a worker’s injuries. The circumstances of the accident, as well as applicable laws, determine the share of liability. At Oxford Lehr, we investigate cases and thoroughly examine evidence to identify who is responsible for our client’s construction accident injuries.
