Most Common Construction Accidents

Construction sites are full of hazards. In fact, construction is one of the most dangerous lines of work in the United States. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that around one in five workplace fatalities involved the construction industry in a recent year.

Closer to home, the most current data from the Maryland Department of Labor indicates significantly more fatalities occurred in the private construction industry than in any other industry. However, workers are not the only people at risk of sustaining a construction injury. A construction accident could harm anyone in the vicinity of a worksite if something goes wrong.

Common types of construction accidents include:

  • Falls
  • Ladder accidents
  • Scaffold collapses
  • Crane accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Trip and fall accidents
  • Forklift accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Construction vehicle crashes
  • Unguarded machinery
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Electrocution
  • Toxic exposure
  • Defective power tools or equipment

If you suffered a construction injury on the job, your medical treatment and a portion of your lost wages could be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Individuals who sustained injuries as bystanders could have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Regardless of the circumstances, a construction accident attorney with Trollinger Law LLC can review your case, determine your legal options, and help you demand the money you deserve.
