Injured on a Construction Site? Call (888) 454-5569

Nationwide, construction work is among the most dangerous occupations. Thanks to California's growing population, the increase in the number of homes and businesses being built has led to hundreds of thousands of construction site accidents each year.

According to the United States Department of Labor, 4,836 workers were killed on the job in 2015 in the United States.

Here are some important things to know about construction injuries:

  • It is the responsibility of the construction companies to thoroughly inspect each site with safety engineers and provide safety programs for employees. When these measures are not implemented or fail to protect construction workers, the owners, architects, insurance companies, and equipment manufacturers can be found legally responsible.
  • Third party negligence means the manufacturers of the various equipment and products used on the site can be found liable for any injuries. It is also possible that subcontractors and even the general contractor may be held responsible for damages.
  • Worker's compensation provides those workers injured on the job, or suffering from a disease while in the course of employment, benefits that include payments based on the employee's wages and total or partial disability. Unfortunately, this alone may not be enough compensation.
  • Types of Construction Accidents

    Around 40% of all construction site fatalities involve electrocution. According to the California Administrative Code, only qualified technicians are allowed to do electrical work. Additionally, such work can’t be undertaken unless the following measures are taken:

    Other accidents and injuries that frequently take place at a construction site include:

    Construction sites can be highly dangerous. While many of the above accidents might not lead to significant injuries, in some cases, workers can suffer from serious, debilitating injuries or even death. Victims might face steep medical bills, long rehabilitations, an inability to work, and emotional damages. Sadly, worker’s compensation may not cover all of the damages, and insurance companies will do their best to limit their liability.
