Construction Site Accidents


Construction Accident Attorney New Haven

Construction site accidents resulting from negligence can cause serious injuries and, in many cases, fatalities. The negligent party may be the project manager, architect, engineer, sub-contractor, general contractor, and product manufacturer. Some of the most common construction site accidents are electrocutions, defective ladders, slip and fall accidents, and falling objects, among others. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a construction site accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Personal injury Attorney Michael P. D’Amico will fight for your rights so you can receive the maximum compensation available.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) believes that most accidents at construction sites are preventable if employers provide the right equipment and training for workers. Since the majority of construction site accidents are from falls from heights, these accidents may be preventable if workers have fall protection and adequate training.

Many injuries are caused by bulky equipment and vehicles, while others may be caused by flaying or falling objects. Construction site managers are responsible for taking appropriate safety precautions, such as clearing the construction site before using lifting devices and inspecting brakes and other equipment on a regular basis. OSHA advises that workers wear reflective vests during the night and orange vests during the day so they can be more easily seen and that construction site workers not work near electrical power circuits to prevent electrocution accidents.

Types of Construction Site Accidents

  • Equipment-related accidents may be caused by defective equipment, heavy machinery, elevators, cranes, or forklifts. This type of accident may cause permanent vision and hearing loss and broken bones.
  • Structurally-related accidents due to collapsed buildings, slippage, scaffolds, or unsteady or faulty floors, can result in severe fractures and severe bodily harm.
  • Falling object accidents may be blamed on the negligence of the property owners for not implementing proper safety guidelines and precautionary techniques on the worksite.
  • Lack of due diligence is another type of negligence on the part of the construction site owner. This can be prevented by providing sufficient training in equipment use and maintenance.
  • Explosions at a worksite may result in serious burns and fires-related accidents.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a construction site accident, you can file a personal injury lawsuit if the injuries were caused by the negligence or carelessness of a third party. Product suppliers, manufacturers, architects, subcontractors, and engineers fall may be third parties in a construction site accident claim.
