Common Types of Construction Accidents and Injuries
Safety and Health Administration reports construction as the deadliest
industry in the U.S. Construction accounts for an average of one in five worker
deaths each year. Dangerous power tools, working from heights, and unsafe
premises make construction accidents unreasonably dangerous for many workers
and pedestrians. Construction site accidents typically happen in one of several
common ways due to the nature of the industry.
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Scaffold accidents
- Struck-by objects
- Caught-in/between objects or equipment
- Transportation accidents
- Exposure to hazardous substances
Common construction site accident injuries include broken
bones, head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, neck and back injuries,
overexertion injuries, burns, electrical shocks, soft tissue injuries, organ
damage, and serious illnesses such as mesothelioma. Speak to an attorney about
your situation no matter what type of injuries you suffered while at a construction
site in Florida.
At Kelley | Uustal, we believe you should not have to pay for damages someone else caused. If a negligent construction company, site manager, product manufacturer, property owner, coworker, or other party caused your construction site accident, the law could entitle you to compensation. You could recover the costs of your related medical expenses, lost income, mental anguish, pain and suffering, lost quality of life, and property damages in a successful civil claim. An attorney can help you fight for the compensation you require to move forward.
