Common Causes of Construction Accident Injuries

construction injury attorneysIn many cases, the accidents that result in worker injuries are the result of an unsafe working environment.

Unfortunately, most of these accidents could have been prevented as they are often created by employers not following the strict rules and regulations that are outlined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Listed below are some of the most common causes of construction site injuries:

  • Falls from heights/scaffolding
  • Electrocution
  • Hit by falling objects or debris
  • Fires & explosions
  • Worker fatigue
  • Auto accidents

It's worth considering that while auto accident injuries are common, they are not usually caused by vehicles hitting other vehicles. In most cases, these auto accidents are the result of machinery and other materials falling onto parked cars, where the workers can be pinned inside their vehicles.

Common Types of Injuries

  • Broken &/or crushed bones
