Constructions Site Injuries
Texas Personal Injury Attorneys
The construction industry that drives the economy in metro areas across the U. S. is one of the most dangerous fields to work in. The combination of fast paced work with the interplay of tasks — carpentry, welding, electrical and masonry and concrete work with power tools, cranes, forklifts and other heavy equipment, along with some companies’ willingness to cut corners, creates a dangerous work environment and substantial risk for disabling injuries and death.
Causes of Injury on Construction Sites
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the most common construction site accidents are falls, and falls are the leading cause of fatalities. In the construction industry, injury and death stem from numerous causes, such as:
- Falls from ladders, scaffolding
- Defective equipment
- Structure collapse or falling objects
- Negligent use of equipment
- Recovering Compensation for Serious Injuries & Death
If you suffer serious or catastrophic injuries on a construction site, you will need an experienced personal injury attorney to protect your rights, investigate the source of liability and determine whether you have grounds for a lawsuit.
Property owners, developers, contractors, employers, sub-contractors and equipment manufacturers are examples of parties that may be liable when injuries or death occur on construction sites.
