Construction Accident Legal AdvancesAccording to The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, one in ten construction workers are injured every year and over the course of a 45 year career, a construction worker has a 1 in 200 chance of dying.

Of those 991 deaths, 384 were a result of falls, 93 were a result of getting struck by an object, 82 were a result of being electrocuted, and 72 were a result of getting caught in between equipment, objects or a collapsing structure.

Construction Accident Causes & InjuriesIt is safe to say that the construction industry is not the safest place to work. There are both internal and external forces that cause accidents resulting in construction worker injuries. Some of these injuries can be as mild as a minor cut while others can result in the death of a worker. Common causes of injuries include falls from height, falling objects, tripping hazards, defective equipment, vehicle accidents, excessive noise, exposure to irritants, trench or building collapses, respiratory diseases, and vibrating tool hazards among others. These accidents can lead to the following injuries:
- Amputation of a finger, toe, or limb
- Cuts or lacerations from exposed nails, tools, machinery, etc.
- Eye injuries or loss of vision from improper use of safety products
- Loss of hearing
- Broken bones or fractures
- Shoulder, knee, or ankle injures from falls or overuse
- Head injuries from falling objects
- Neck, back and spinal cord injuries, common from falls
